- ‘Call me by your name’ and the mystery of love
‘Call me by your name’ arrived in 2017. The first screening was at the Sundance Film Festival in January. A month later he landed at the Berlinale. After several more film competitions and several nominations and awards obtained, Luca Guadagnino’s film was recognized as a benchmark of cinema in recent years. Not only for being one of the best LGTBIQ + movies of all time, but also for presenting one of the great stars of the current cinema scene: Thimothée Chalamet.
The actor had a remarkable career behind him, in which there were titles like the series ‘Homeland’, ‘Interstellar’ or ‘Men, women and children’, but the film adaptation of André Aciman’s novel was an absolute revolution for his life. The plot took us to the hot and sunny summer of northern Italy, in the year 1983. The 17-year-old Elio (Chalamet) spends his summer vacations with his parents listening to music, reading and swimming. One day Oliver (Armie Hammer), a young American, arrives at the village to help his father. At first Elio is somewhat cold, but a strong and increasingly intense attraction begins to grow between the two. The idyllic landscape will witness his love story.
This plot that perfectly captured the essence of summer love conquered both critics and was very well received by the public. James Ivory won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay and Chalamet himself got his first nomination for Best Actor at just 22 years old. It was the film that elevated him in Hollywood. Then came ‘Lady Bird’, the Greta Gerwig film that she also premiered that year, ‘A Rainy Day in New York’, ‘Dune’, and those yet to come.
And all this thanks to the Italian filmmaker who relied on him to bring young Elio to life. Now that they are about to present their new project together, Chalamet has shared a photo on his Instagram account with Guadagninowith a nice dedication.

“This man changed my life. Until tomorrow night“, the actor wrote on his account, sharing the beautiful black and white photo with the director. Quite a detail on Chalamet’s part to remember the filmmaker, with whom he has worked again this year. Both present today in Venice their latest work, ‘Bones and all’, another adaptation of a novel, this time by Camille DeAngelis. A film that also includes a love story with actress Taylor Russell but with less charming overtones.
