Call Me By Your Name does more harm than good, and needed to be and do more. Especially as yet another queer white cisgender-centric film, it should have aimed for the stars instead of aiming to make people feel comfortable.
I appreciated the film quality and the acting but the story meandered in superficial courtship for too long without delivering actual connection. It was all foreplay and no action. Perhaps the sequel will make this film more appealing to me in the future.
Anyone who has experienced the flush of first love will relate, but the fact that the film is specific and detailed both emotionally and physically in its portrayal of a gay relationship makes it a standout.
...it breathes and evokes the essence of a landscape that throughout the centuries has been sometimes Italian and sometimes Gallic, but always Mediterranean to the marrow: a fertile ground for love or desire. [Full review in Spanish]
Some of the scenery in the film, including a waterfall, is spectacular. The location shots are sumptuous. The acting is subtle and moving. This film has a lot going for it, but it is also very low-key, relatively non-dramatic and slow-moving.
