Call Me By Your Name movie quotes provide the dialogue, in English and Italian, for the romantic coming of age film. Luca Guadagnino directed the film using a screenplay James Ivory adapted from the book of the same name by André Aciman. Call Me By Your Name premiered at the Sundance Film Festival before opening in theaters in the United States on November 24, 2017.
In Call Me By Your Name, the Perlman family, including teenage son Elio (Timothée Chalamet), live in Northern Italy where Mr. Perlman (Michael Stuhlbarg) teaches archaeology. The family invites grad student Oliver (Armie Hammer) to stay with them over the summer and while Elio and Oliver initially clash, they soon become friends.
So while Elio shows Oliver around town and openly brags about having sex with girlfriend Merzia (Esther Garrel), he also begins to form a relationship with Oliver. This all leaves Elio quite confused about life, something that is only complicated by the fact that the summer is soon ending and Oliver is leaving with it.
I'll Call You By Mine
Oliver: Call me by your name and I'll call you by mine.
In a moment of intimacy, Oliver instructs his lover to reverse their names. This simple instruction allows Oliver to continue to bond with his partner, romantically and emotionally.
Daring You to Desire Them
Mr. Perlman: Muscles are firm, not a straight body in these statues. They're all curved, sometimes impossibly curved, and so nonchalant hence their ageless ambiguity as if they're daring you to desire them.
In this Call Me By Your Name movie quote, Mr. Perlman talks about Italian sculpture, something he teaches. The comments about desiring the form extends to more than just sculpture in this film.
Nature Has Cunning Ways
Mr. Perlman: Nature has cunning ways of finding our weakest spot.
As is true in life and love, Mr. Perlman talks about how nature has a way of exposing weaknesses. His son, Elio, finds this out the hard way in this romantic coming of age story.
I Could Show You Around
Elio: I could show you around.
Oliver: That would be great. Thank you.
After Oliver arrives at Elio's family's home in these Call Me By Your Name movie quotes, Elio offers to show Oliver the area. Is Elio just being a good host or is something more brewing?
