In Northern Italy in 1983, seventeen year-old Elio begins a relationship with visiting Oliver, his father's research assistant, with whom he bonds over his emerging sexuality, their Jewish heritage, and the beguiling Italian landscape.
In Taoism, peaches symbolizes virginity, female sexuality and female genitalia. Having that in mind, there are many ways to interpret the controversial "peach scene."
Elio, come here. Take your trunks off.
Oliver: Well, that's promising. You're hard again. Good.
In the final shot of Elio at the fireplace, a housefly can be seen crawling on his shirt. Flies don't live long enough for it to be in the house that time of year, when snow has fallen (and during Hanukkah).
The sound of the fire crackling in the fireplace continues after the last image of Elio goes black and the final notes of Sufjan Stevens's "Visions of Gideon" fade out.
