After seeing some of the other comments I felt compelled to write one myself. I can only believe that some people are not able to relate in any way to the story even though the theme(s) can apply to everyone. The story is masterfully crafted and acted. This could have easily been another coming of age sexual awakening film but that is only a distant backdrop to the intense and unexpected connection taking place between our two main characters. The infatuation, the passion, the confusion, the angst, and even shame touched on by Elio, our main character, in a two hour film really captures what young adults can feel trying to come to grips with attraction to another human being.
One thing that really stood out to me was all the things left out of this film that would have detracted from the characters relationships and intense emotions felt. Things like disease, planning a future, getting caught by parents, police, or friends. I don't think these things being left out detracted from the reality of the film but were left out to really intensify the emotions playing out in the story.
Sometimes the most amazing things happen to us in the most unexpected ways and they often can't be contained or recreated but they shape our lives forever afterward.

This film was nominated for Best Picture Oscar. Thank goodness it didn't get it. First of all, picturesque though the Italian countryside is, the film is too slow-moving. It should have been better edited. It has no business being 132 minutes long! But my main complaint is the subject matter, which in reality is the story of an adult seducing a child half his age. Sexuality at age 17 is still a work in progress, and no adult should be behaving the way Oliver does here. What if the 17-year-old had been a girl? Would the reviews be as gushing as they are with this version? Armie Hammer was badly miscast as the predator in this unfortunate film.

"Leisurely" hardly begins to describe it. "Idyllic to a fault," maybe. Okay, but overrated.

Supposed to be beautiful but is just plain boring., and feels too
contrived when the whole message to you is delivered in the last scene.
We already know this message.

I love that the author of this is listed as Armie Hammer

This is a BEAUTIFUL movie. A story of first love and sexual awakening, set during an Italian summer and anchored by a fearlessly transparent performance by Timothee Chalamet, Call Me By Your Name is heartbreakingly lovely.
