In 1980s Italy, a romance blossoms between a seventeen year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant.
Oliver appears to have a special affinity for the song "Love My Way." Richard Butler actually said the song was written for gays struggling with their sexuality, which Oliver clearly is.
Art Historian 2:
Cinema is a mirror of reality and it is a filter.
Continuity error after Elio grabs Oliver's crotch. As shot from the front, Oliver removes Elio's hand with his left hand. Cut to the immediate continuing shot from the rear but Oliver now has Elio's hand in his right hand as he sets Elio's hand back on Elio's knee.
Although the movie has a full opening credits sequence, the title of the film is not shown on screen until the end credits begin.
