In 1980s Italy, a romance blossoms between a seventeen year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant.
In the book, Elio is 17 years old and Oliver is 24. Timothée Chalamet was 20 years old when the film was shot, while Armie Hammer was 29. The film is set in Italy, and the age of consent in the country is 14.
Elio, come here. Take your trunks off.
Oliver: Well, that's promising. You're hard again. Good.
As soon as Oliver's train has left the station of Clusone, Elio calls his mother on the phone, asking her to come and pick him up. The train station of Clusone was a bus only station by 1983, as the railway line of Valle Seriana (in the province of Bergamo) closed down in 1967 to be substituted by a bus line.
Although the movie has a full opening credits sequence, the title of the film is not shown on screen until the end credits begin.
