Watch Call Me by Your Name 123movies online free is one of those films that will leave you wanted to wtch it again right away. Let’s begin with the directing of this film. Luca Guadagnino shows us the sensual beauty of the Italian landscape and through his visuals of Elio and Oliver shows us all true love. For me, CMbYN reminds me of first love and exploring and discovering your partner. As many have said this isn’t a gay love story, rather a love story. When it comes to coming of age films, this is the top of the line. Films like “Boyhood” many can connect with, but not all. CMbYN is a coming of age movie that we can all connect with. It reminds of us of our first love and those feelings that you never want to leave, and the pain that you feel when they do. It brings on the emotion of knowing that you couldn’t feel so unhappy if you had not been so happy, showing us true emotion. Call Me by Your Name is a film that will stick with my for a long time and I will think of it everyday as I have already since I saw it days ago.

Review Call Me by Your Name by Miguel Neto – one of the favorites at oscar 2018.
Call Me by Your Name directed by Luca Guadagnino is nominated by many one of the great favorites in the Oscar of 2018, is a very good movie, and really deserves the bets, is a sensitive film, beautiful and with great performances, with a good story Armie Hammer does the best acting in the career, he is very well, but it is not a performance to win Oscar in my opinion, but if he wins, it will not be unfair, but I think that this year we had better performances in the category of best supporting actor, and Timothée Chalamet is even better, does a great performance, his character is full of doubts, and makes really difficult decisions in the film, the film is beautiful and with moments well calm with a beautiful photograph and color palette, the movie has some problems, there are characters that do not add anything, and I found that the relationship of the characters was a bit rushed, I think it was worth the film to have had about 20 mi Call me by Your Name is a sensitive, beautiful film with great moments and great performances.
Review Call Me by Your Name by KJ Proulx – A Moving And Poetic Drama
Not to single out this particular premise, but films revolving around gay couples have been terrific over the last decade or so. There was a spark when 2005’s Brokeback Mountain was released, which eventually brought us to foreign films like Blue Is the Warmest Colour being nominated for a Golden Globe or Moonlight winning best picture at the Oscars. Call Me by Your Name is the latest film to probably receive many nominations in the coming months, and believe me, the praise is not false. Being a fan of 2015’s A Bigger Splash, I was looking forward to Luca Guadagnino’s follow-up feature film, and I believe this to be an improvement in the best ways. Exploring the hardships of life and what it means to just kick back and relax every now and then, Call Me by Your Name is a film that’s been sticking with me since my viewing of it. While it admittedly won’t be able to draw in everyone to the theatres, here is why I believe this to be a fantastic, award-worthy picture.
Written by James Ivory and directed by Luca Guadagnino, Call Me by Your Name follows a family that lets Oliver, an older graduate student, live in their home for the summer. While this is a common thing, what’s not too common is that Elio, their son, will eventually grow romantic feelings toward this man, convincing him to become his lover for the summer. From the age gap between them and having to hide it from the family, their situation isn’t an easy one, nor will it be for some audience members, but it really is a wonderful story. This is easily a story that could’ve stirred up controversy if it hadn’t been done with taste, and because of how it was made, I just couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. This was made entirely possible by the incredibly devoted performances by Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer.
Hammer has had his ups and downs through the years, appearing in Oscar-winning films as well as some of the worst films of the year, so his performance here was the most shocking to me. Yes, he’s been talent in nearly everything he’s been in, but he really gave his all in this performance and I honestly don’t think he’ll ever be better than he was in Call Me by Your Name. On the other hand, young Chalamet has a very bright future ahead of him. Being a relatively new actor, his chemistry with Hammer was impeccably astounding. Their relationship took a while to grow on me, but once it completely won me over, I found myself wondering if there was anything to really complain about.
If I had to complain about anything, it would be in its extreme pressure to try your patience. There are very long sequences of silence, making you relax and take in either a romantic moment or the scenery around them, which I also found poetic at the same time, so I actually have trouble coming up with issues, but I have to admit that I did find the movie slow at times. Yes, it’s meant to be slow, which is why that complaint isn’t exactly valid, but I just have to be honest.
In the end, this is a truly remarkable piece of dramatic filmmaking and there are some very memorable scenes that keep replaying themselves in my head. One scene in particular that involves Elio and his father Mr. Perlman (played magnificently by Michael Stuhlbarg) toward the end had me in tears. From the brilliantly written screenplay, to the poetic cinematography, to the terrifically calm direction, Call Me by Your Name isn’t a movie that I would send the average moviegoer out to see, but if you’re a hardcore film fan, I think you’ll end up loving this movie.
Review Call Me by Your Name by Kevgasid – Beautifully crafted.
To those giving this film a negative nod, maybe you just don’t relate enough and are just pure narrow minded. The movie depicts every (or some) closeted gay man’s story. No matter what you say about the sex scenes, it happens in real life. It is true. It’s just right that Timothée got nominated for an Oscar because he did justice to his character. Even without saying a word, his eyes said it all. Although some of the reviewers here are inputting religious stuff in all this, we cannot deny the fact that the story is not far from happening in real life. Again. It happens. And don’t get me started with the peach scene. Don’t be a hypocrite and say you haven’t done or even thought of doing something like it. The movie took 2 hours to finish, but every emotion needed to be felt. And for me, it was beautifully done. I just can’t wait for the next installment.
Review Call Me by Your Name by Richarddillomes – “I remember everything…”
It’s that time of the year again. This year there are 9 nominees vying for the Best Picture at the Oscars and I’m looking forward to watching all because I’m only familiar with this one and at best I only knew the title and that it features Armie Hammer, who played twins in The Social Network and whom I was sure was destined for stardom along with his disarming voice until he did The Lone Ranger.
Based on the novel with the same name, the movie tells the story of the friendship (that’s what they called it back in the day – or even until now actually) between Oliver, a visiting research assistant and Elio, the 17 year old son of Oliver’s professor. Their initial chemistry was uneasy, with the former’s arrogance typical of an American and the latter’s condescending typical of a teenager. In time, they agreed to be friends (there’s that word again) and ended up with the most memorable experience one could hope for set in sunny Italy in the 80s. For the longest time I’ve been looking for the right term to call that feeling when the sun is shining just right, the wind is blowing the dandelions in the air, you’re laying beside your loved one and you don’t want it to end. This movie helped me find it: it’s called Romantic.
I’ve read multiple articles on how many chances Armie has been given already only because he’s the very definition of white privilege, but it’s good that the director took a chance on him to tell us that stereotyping in any way, shape or form is a loss for everyone. He also defended his decision to cast straight actors for the role by saying to cast someone in a role based on gender identity is oppressive. Timothee Chalamet deserved his Best Actor nomination (see end credits of movie). Praises as well for Elio’s parents who made me realize that’s the kind of parent I want to be if ever I become one.
As for it’s prospects of winning, if the academy is ready to make good on the error they made when they chose that movie no one remembers anymore over Brokeback Mountain back in 2005, it wouldn’t be wasted on this. But if the other eight nominees are more deserving, I wouldn’t give them a hard time about it.
Favorite quote: “We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything – what a waste!”
Review Call Me by Your Name by Davidgee – Summer of gay love
After years of famine this is feast year for gay picture-goers: two gay love stories in two months. Scripted by James Ivory and directed by Luca Guadagnino, CALL ME BY YOUR NAME has all the rich texture and subtlety of a ‘classic’ Merchant-Ivory production. It’s 1983 and 17-year-old Elio Perlman (Timothee Chalamet) is spending the summer at his parents’ house in Northern Italy. A hunky American graduate (Arnie Hammer) arrives to help his professor father with archaeological research. Elio develops a crush on the charismatic Oliver who, reluctantly at first, reciprocates. A summer of intense passion is bound to have a short lease as Oliver has to go back to the States.
The two leads give deeply felt performances and the spirit of the 1980s – musically and morally – is delicately evoked. Elio’s dad (Michael Stuhlbarg, a near double for Robin Williams), supportive and non-judgmental, is the dad any gay teenager would yearn to have.
Cinematography and the music score are superb. At two and a quarter hours the movie is a tad too long and slow to take off, but the intensity of this love story exceeds GOD’S OWN COUNTRY and is very much the equal of BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. The mood reminded me very much of Joseph Losey’s THE GO-BETWEEN (1971). A movie not to be missed.
Review Call Me by Your Name by Charles Camp – Words are futile devices
It’s difficult to articulate precisely what makes this film so phenomenal. It may sound cliché, but words truly can’t capture its ravishing, almost magical quality. Few films are able to transport me so fully that I feel I’m there with the characters, experiencing each moment as if it’s happening in real time. There is something so palpable about this film, like you can just reach out and touch it. The setting and mood are absolutely intoxicating to the point where you can almost feel the water through your hands and the sun on your face. Pinpointing how the film creates this effect is nearly impossible because it’s really the combination of so many things: the colors, lighting, editing, music, pacing, and, of course, the incredible performances by its two leads. This is definitely a film that lives and breathes in the subtle details, which collectively create a feeling of richness and depth. Crucial as well is the film’s masterful use of restraint in its patient, languid rhythm that perfectly captures the feeling of a lazy summer afternoon. Overall a beautiful, poignant love story that feels simultaneously intimate and overwhelming; blissful and melancholic. Destined to be a classic. Hell, it already feels like one.
Review Call Me by Your Name by Keidijaakson – if I only could, I would give it a 1 000 000/10
I have no words for this film. I thought I would come here and I would sing and praise this movie in a thousand and one words but I am speechless. I did know nothing before I watched it. I just wanted to see something tonight. I was all alone and it’s been an emotional week. I thought it was just another drama, a tragic lovestory. A cliche. I cannot begin to describe how wrong I was. I mean I can’t believe I even watched this. Is it actually real, this movie? Or was I dreaming? This is hauntingly beautiful. It is utterly compelling. I didn’t want it to stop. I wanted to stay with them, just a little longer. I wanted them to just meet for one last time. For forever. We have all had our first loves. They very rarely end well. I would even go as far as to say they never end well. The tragedies of our firsts are like the cornerstones of the building that is our Self. We cannot have life without them. And our first love, our first time falling so deep into someone and the feeling of someone falling inside of you is the most raw and painful of all the firsts. I am in awe. That someone wrote something so magnificent. And that someone had the eye to catch it onto a film and the actors and the story.. I don’t understand. It’s perfect.
I cried so so so much at the end of this movie. I cried so much after. My heart aches and my chest hurts. But it’s perfect. This is what I want from a movie. It needs to shake me up to face the beauty and ugliness, perfection and imperfection of Life. Breathing, seeing, FEELING. It’s amazing. We have the opportunity to live, so let’s breathe it in people. Let’s do it.
I feel like this movie was made for me. It was excatly what I craved from storytelling and cinematography. I am in love. I am love.
Thank you, for this film. To everyone that made it happen. I am so utterly greatful.
Review Call Me by Your Name by MrDHWong – A beautifully told and often poignant story of forbidden love
Call Me By Your Name is a drama film starring Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet. Based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Andrè Aciman, it is a beautifully told and often poignant story of forbidden love.
In 1983, a young man named Elio (Timothée Chalamet) lives near a countryside town in Italy with his parents. One day, Elio’s archaeologist father invites an American graduate student named Oliver (Armie Hammer) to stay with them over the course of the summertime to help out with his paperwork. During Oliver’s six week stay, he and Elio bond over their mutual Jewish heritage and their emerging feelings for one another.
Touching and melancholic, Call Me By Your Name never feels pretentious or forced in its showcase of love and romance and it leaves a powerful impression on the viewer right up to the end credits. Both Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet have great on-screen chemistry and director Luca Guadagnino does a superb job in showing their growing relationship throughout the course of the story. The film’s cinematography is fantastic. We are often shown the glorious open Italian landscape, which serves as a great setting for some of the film’s more dramatic moments. The soundtrack, which includes songs from musician Sufjan Stevens, is worth noting as well. Stevens’ lyrics about personal longing and coming-of-age suit the film’s tone perfectly and help project the viewer into the mindset of its two lead characters.
Review Call Me by Your Name by Langseth – Happiness
The opening phrase “somewhere in the north of Italy” is a prologue to the fascinating story of fairy-tale happiness, which is the meeting of a highly educated intellectual and a young creative personality, separated at the age of a couple of decades, and then suddenly converging, revealing a commonality of mutual feelings.
The fantastic nature of the story is that they find each other and nobody hinders them. Their lyrical romance does not harm anyone, despite the fact that there is always an extra in love, who will, alas, not be at work. But this love has neither an enemy nor contradictions – that happy event, when everything is perfectly understood, accepted, forgiven and supported.
Born in the beginning, the feeling of happiness, not leaving for a single moment, accompanies every moment of this picture, filled with capacious frames from intimate short and voluminous, spatial general plans expressing the thrill and deep breath of lovers, who, as the father of young Elio, very very fortunate.
How lucky and all of us with the discovery of a rare gift of Timothy Shalame, who has the ability to control himself and manage his emotions, becoming a completely different person, while leaving the slightest reason to doubt the change of face, which determines the credibility of the whole story, consisting of tender appeals and responses, verbally and tactfully exchanged the main characters of this picture, happy with each meeting alone.
Italian Luca Guadagnino represents a radiant light and breathing passion, not devoid of sadness and humor, a sparkling ribbon of happiness, as sincere as the characters of this story, doomed to the inevitable parting, the consequences of which enrich with new paints the psychological portraits of parents, son and his lover , and Shalame performs a creative feat, hanging on the credits in a tremendous pause, which will never be forgotten.
