R | | Drama, Romance
In 1980s Italy, a romance blossoms between a seventeen year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant.
Hammer and Chalamet told in an interview that they had plenty of time to hang out and get to know each other off set which helped them with their roles in the movie.
Malfada? Mom? Yeah, it's me. Yeah, everything's fine, I'm at the station in Clusone. Listen, Mom, can you...
Elio: Can you come get me, mom?
The book that Elio gave to Marzia is the collection of poems "Parole" [Words] by Antonia Pozzi, curated by Alessandra Cenni and Onorina Dino and published for the first time by Garzanti in its series Poesia in 1989 (while the movie is set in 1983).
Although the movie has a full opening credits sequence, the title of the film is not shown on screen until the end credits begin.
