By now you have read the book, seen the film 10+ times, know all the awards Timothée has won for portraying Elio (and the big one he should have won!), and you are the proud owner of the Blu-Ray/DVD. But yet, here is the trailer for those who have been under a rock.
There are definitely still people who have not seen this movie but have discovered Timothée through Lady Bird. When they watch this, as I'm sure they will, they'll be in for a real treat. Personally, I've seen now several times. My only regret is that I never saw it in theatres. I'm hoping some theatre in my town shows it again during summer, as it often happens with great movies, possibly in English.
Simply one of the best films ever made. Riveting from start to finish, and builds an incredible feel that just draws you in for the 2+ hours it runs. I remember at the end of it, after watching Timmy cry for about 4 minutes, I was wondering "who the hell is this boy and where did he come from?!" And that was that. LOL.
Conflicting feels about a sequel; on the one hand, I don't want CMBYN to be touched anymore as the movie was so perfect, and on the other hand, I want more Elio/Oliver. Indecision.
This film is a perfect match with my style, the story, the location, the characters and actors, the multicultural circumstances, and the beatufiful piano pieces. I watched it in the cinema four times, and I have the blue-ray disc. One of the best films I've ever seen in my life. Some days ago I celebrated my 40th birthday, and I was lucky, because the film's seen in a tiny art cinema in Budapest (where I work). 2 of my friends went along with me, and they liked the movie. It was a marvellous day! And the book is amazing, I read it 3 times successively during spring. Now I'm reading in English, and I really enjoy its language in English, too. My heart always shatter in the last 20 pages. Aciman wrote Elio's loss in a perfect way. Next time I'll listen to the English audiobook.
www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZNUS1BPouY&t=2928s Luca Guadagnino's masterclass on his journey as a director presented by BAFTA Guru, which includes his elaboration on the making of two scenes of CMBYN, the phone scene near the end and the "dance" of Oliver and Elio around the WW1 monument. Especially the momument scene was a representation of his philosophy of giving liberty to film set instead of hanging on to the script, which was very refreshing to me.
I watched that masterclass yesterday and it made me love and appreciate Luca even more. The more I listen to him talking about filmmaking, the more I'm in awe of him. I think he is a great director and I really appreciate how he seems to understand that actors and the dynamics of the moment have to take precedence to the script. I really think we have to thank him for Call Me By Your Name being so great, because according to those who read the script, the movie is way better than what the scrip let on.
Hooooray!!! I hope the filming starts after Dune 1 so that we may be able to see it in 2020/2021. I didn't know Luca was invited to direct Rio before tho. It doesn't look like his style very much...
I also didn't know Luca was set to direct Rio. The one that I read before was that he'll be doing a movie with Jennifer Lawrence. If Luca passed this opportunity to direct Rio, then he's really serious about the CMBYN sequel. I saw a video on YouTube and can tell Armie's excitement about the sequel when he was interviewed about it. Hope everything goes well with their plans! Looking forward to this!
I just read an interview of Luca for Esquire where he talked a little about the movie.
- People are surprised you plan four more films with the Call Me by Your Name characters. It appeared to be a standalone story.
Because they are thinking in the wrong way. Because people think that my idea is to make a sequel. But that is not correct. My idea is to chronicle the lives of the characters of this movie so that eventually, if we have enough of these stories, we can say that this is a chronicle, not a sequel.
- An “untitled” second film has been announced as your next project.
