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.
Gabriele Muccino, Sam Taylor-Johnson and James Ivory were considered to direct the movie.
They know about us.
Oliver: I figured.
Oliver: From the way your dad spoke to me, he made me feel like a part of the family, almost like a son-in-law. You're so lucky! My father would have carted me off to a correctional facility.
Elio: Elio. Elio, Elio, Elio, Elio,...
Throughout the entire movie Oliver wears a Star of David necklace. In the final scene where we see Oliver, saying goodbye to Elio at the train station, he is not clearly seen wearing the Star of David necklace. No explanation is given for why he would take it off or not be wearing it. Though it's very very hard to clasp a glimpse of it due to the way the shirt is buttoned up, there are a few split seconds where you can see the necklace is definitely on his neck during that scene.
Although the movie has a full opening credits sequence, the title of the film is not shown on screen until the end credits begin.
