In 1980s Italy, a romance blossoms between a seventeen year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant.
In many scenes of the film, Oliver was wearing a tortoise Persol PO0649, and Elio was wearing a black Ray-ban Original Wayfarer, both classic sunglasses of Italian design from the 50s.
Please don't avoid me. It kills me. I can't stand thinking you hate me. Your silence is killing me. I'd sooner die than know you hate me. I am such a pussy.
Elio: Way over the top.
Elio: Can't stand the silence. I need to speak to you.
This film gets the cars right except for the Alfa 90 released in 1984 whilst it's still 1983 in the film.
Although the movie has a full opening credits sequence, the title of the film is not shown on screen until the end credits begin.
