CALLMEBYYOURNAME
#armiehammer  #timothéechalamet  #cmbyn  







The New York Film Festival
runs September 28 – October 15.

The 55th New York Film Festival Main Slate
Closing Night






“Call Me by Your Name,” Dir. Luca Guadagnino, Italy/France, 2017, 132m


A story of summer love unlike any other, the sensual new film from the director of I Am Love,  set in 1983, charts the slowly ripening romance between Elio (Timothée Chalamet), an American teen on the verge of discovering himself, and Oliver (Armie Hammer), the handsome older grad student whom his professor father (Michael Stuhlbarg) has invited to their vacation home in Northern Italy. Adapted from the wistful novel by André Aciman, Call Me by Your Name i s Guadagnino’s most exquisitely rendered, visually restrained film, capturing with eloquence the confusion and longing of youth, anchored by a remarkable, star-making performance by Chalamet, always a nervy bundle of swagger and insecurity, contrasting with Hammer’s stoicism. A Sony Pictures Classics release.

""All I prayed for was for time to stop. Let summer never end,
let him never go away, let the music on perpetual replay play forever,
I'm asking for very little, and I swear I'll ask for nothing more."

Thank you, John, for posting all this!  How wonderful.

I recently re-read the book while on vacation.  I liked even better the second time.

It's such a first-person narrative, I wonder how it will translate to film.  Is there a voice-over? So much of the story takes place in Elio's mind.

So, they "sort of" did the peach scene?  I can't imagine how that will go...

Sad that the film is not set at the sea, as the novel is.

Later!




Yes, Paul, many changes--but I was so insanely in love with Luca Guadagnino's I Am Love  (which was just as stylishly gorgeous as Tom Ford's A Single Man,  if not more so), I'm completely happy!

FYI, there are at least snippets of the original (or one version of) James Ivory's screenplay on line--in which the main 1988 story (rather than Guadagnino's 1982-3 reset) was in winter.

Winter??  Hello? Not many swim trunks and flying shirttails in--Sicily?? Really? (Siicily in winter is COLD and DAMP.) Also--Oliver was to have been played by--Shia LaBeouf?? Oh Lord NO! Must have been in the same alternate reality in which Jack Twist was played by--Matt Damon. (Major compensation in that same alternate reality was Gore won in 2000 and Hilary won in 2016.)

Another change from the book: no further meetings between Elio and Oliver in later years; the movie is set in one summer only.

Anyway, counting the days for an Italian (Crema) Summer in November!

Later!








Paul, it took a while to find that James Ivory screenplay snippet again--and James Ivory's 'very odd choice in a wintry setting may not have started so odd as the opening scene MIGHT be around Christmas, more than half a year before the fateful summer in question, Elio is looking at the headshot photos, (surreptitiously?) loading the scales, and choosing this year's candidate: super handsome Signor Oliver Ulliva, la muvi star.

Or not. See below, Ivory says that Luca moved the setting to summer (good choice). In any case, take a look.

(Later!)

Anatomy of an Opening Scene:
CALLMEBYYOURNAME

A teenager, a bedroom, and his erotic imagination

By James Ivory











The script of CALL ME BY YOUR NAME begins like many of the Merchant Ivory screenplays — with a wide establishing view of where the story mostly is to be set, in a landscape which is often foreign, containing a big house, center stage. The chosen landscape here was to have been a wintry Sicily. But then, the director Luca Guadagnino decided CALL ME BY YOUR NAME couldn’t be shot there, but had to be made in Northern Italy around Milan, which has a very, very different kind of landscape — and in the summer.

The film’s action, perhaps more appropriately, now begins in the teenage hero’s bedroom, which in this story is pretty much where his erotic imagination is staged.
I would like to thank the young Italian director, Ferdinando Cito Filomarino for the Italian dialogue he wrote for the film. André Aciman, the author of the novel on which the film is based, and who grew up in Italy, has called Ferdinando’s dialogue “perfect.”




As a screenwriter James Ivory has made 7 produced features, collaborating usually with the late Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, his longtime scenarist: SHAKESPEARE WALLAH (1965); THE GURU (1969); BOMBAY TALKIE (1970); A SOLDIER’S DAUGHTER NEVER CRIES (1998); and LE DIVORCE (2003). In 1986 he wrote MAURICE with Kit Hesketh-Harvey. All of these films he directed, and all were made by Merchant Ivory Productions.
