How ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Depicts Desire

Looking at the filmography of Luca Guadagnino, his latest release, it's easy to consider Bones and All his darkest romance yet

but Call Me by Your Name is brutal in its own right.

While lacking in blood and gore, the film is an emotional stab to the heart, filled with sadness and tragedy under dreamy pastel hues.

The acclaimed 2017 romance film follows Elio (Timothée Chalamet) during a summer that changed his life

when he had a magical, fleeting romance with his father's oldest summer apprentice, 24-year-old Oliver (Army Hammer).

A bittersweet haze of nostalgia permeates each frame, casting a cloud of sadness over the moments that defined this pivotal summer.
