  • Those were the days, Alberta 2007.
I am so amazed by Armie Hammer's ability to ride a bike without hand on the handle bars.

Poor Sufjan. Nervous, I’m sure. The backup singers didn’t help much. Plus, the song was WAY truncated.
But, is that Chris Thile in mandolin?? Far right.

Just a couple observations after a pre-Oscar viewing.

When they go to swim at Sirmione (after the bronze is brought up), at the end of the scene, we clearly hear, “Elio....Oliver”, each calling the other’s name...

Also, as they move to the bedroom for the midnight tryst, we hear the opening chords of “Visions of Gideon”. Nice touch.

One more observation.

At the end of Elio’s amazingly changing expressions in front of the fire, he seems to go from sad, to steel himself, to smiling, and as his name is called, he looks straight into the camera before turning his head to fade out.

Will wonders ever cease?

There are SO many nuisances, subtle glances and gestures in this film... it takes several viewing to catch them all.  The ones you just pointed out I'd missed.  I heard the "Elio and Oliver" when they were splashing around with his dad...but did not realize they were calling each other's name.   Nice.

  • Brokeback got us good.
Just wondering. . . .Oliver seemed to be bisexual. Was Elio too? Or were they gay, but settling (fitting in)?
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

I thought about this above more and it's out of sequence... they had just made the "truce"  remember the handshake?  I'm not sure we are really hearing each calling the other's name...not just quite yet.  I'd have to really listen to the dialog in headphones to be sure..  V.

Oliver returns to the USA and marries, so we are left to wonder. 
With Elio, his sexuality also remains unclear as Elio's having sex with the young lady in the film too. 
What we do know, especially from the ending is Oliver and Elio have that very rare chemistry that two people only maybe find once in their lives... if they are lucky.
