Film No. 6 (2018) January 21st. 10:40 PM LUNA PALACE Leederville .
"Nature has cunning ways of finding our weakest spot." (Elio's father offers some warm words to his heartbroken son).
This highly acclaimed film deserves its accolades. Call Me By Your Name is a coming of age love story of beauty and eventual heartbreak. The test for viewers may be one's moral stance (age related) once the bond is consummated between Elio (Timothee Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer). Perhaps the magic of the film is the pure beauty director Guadagnino weaves gradually through each erotically charged scene. The regions of Northern Italy are beautifully filmed to tantalize our senses and give the full experience. The final touching scenes are both revealing and heartbreaking. The minutes we spend with Elio and his dad (Michael Stuhlbarg) while they talk in such compassionate terms are mesmerizing. Tissues may be needed for the single camera shot that lingers as the titles roll. A film of beauty is Call Me By Your Name. 10GUMS.
