In 1980s Italy, a romance blossoms between a seventeen year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant.
The day-pack used by Elio in several outdoor scenes was Invicta's Jolly III Vintage, popular among school kids in Italy.
Right now you may not want to feel anything. Maybe you never wanted to feel anything. And maybe it's not to me you'll want to speak about these things. But feel something you obviously did.
Elio wears an anachronistic Fido Dido T-shirt a couple times in the movie, including the beautiful scene on the sofa with his father near the end of the film. Although the film takes place in 1983, the Fido Dido character wasn't created until 1985. And in fact, if you pause/freeze-frame playback during that scene on the sofa, you can clearly see on the front of Elio's T-shirt the copyright year 1985 in small lettering (showing as "© 1985 Fido Dido") on the lower left side.
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.
