In 1980s Italy, a romance blossoms between a seventeen year-old student and the older man hired as his father's research assistant.
To add to the setting in the early 1980s, two references to contemporary movies are briefly visible: When Elio and Oliver are in town, a cinema poster in the background announces Tootsie (1982). When they are at the newsstand, a picture on the magazine rack shows the Millenium Falcon in front of a half-built Death Star, a scene from Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983).
I thought that he did not like me
When Elio shows Oliver his "secret place" he removes his sunglasses in close up just to hold them in his left hand. Camera changes to Oliver and then both of them again and the sunglasses are no longer to be seen.
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.
