Before viewing the movie I had heard many rave reviews. Unfortunately, I do not agree with most of those rave reviews. I do think the movie was ok but there were several things that bothered me. The most obvious to me was the miscasting of Armie Hammer. His character is supposed to be 24 years old. There is no way he is believable as a 24 year old, not only because of his physical looks, but the dialogue for this character is not that of a 24 year old. The subject matter is interesting but it is extremely slow moving and if you know nothing about the story prior to viewing, one can be a bit confused when the issue of the young boy's attraction to the older character first comes up. I also felt the ending was a bit too contrived. The production values are very good but I can only rate this movie as just ok. I give it 2.5 stars.

I completely lost interest in this movie about 20 minutes into it.

With James Ivory's name on the credits I thought this had to be good. Having watched it I've no idea how it got an Academy nomination. Or perhaps looking at its competitors is the clue. Dialogue at the level of a daytime sitcom, plot that strains credibility, acting equally poor, the whole thing mirrors third rate TV, not life.

To counter the Armie Hammer haters out there, I picked up this DVD without knowing anything about the plot (only knowing that Armie was in it. Plus, you can never lose with Michael Stuhlbarg). I believed every second of Armie's performance.

Elio, Elio, Elio, Elio.

Very good cast,but no doubt the young lead actor stands out amoung all. He is a natural!!! Armie Hammer over plays his part. Watch out for the lead,"Timothy" better things are to come his way

I don't understand the Oscar nomination for Best Picture for this film. There just wasn't much of a story here, certainly not enough for the time allotted to tell it. Two young men fall in love, one is seventeen, the other a little older but it is not going to be a committed relationship. So there is some point to that as explained at the end of the film by the father of the 17 year old, how great it was that they were able to experience this kind of love even temporarily and so forth. Overall, the film was slow and mostly boring but had beautiful actors and location.

This movie was devasting and gorgeous and beautiful and profound and sweet and lovely. And no, I'm not being hyperbolic or contradictory. The acting, cinematography, and keen-eyed direction from Luca Guadagnino ensured this kind of praise and more. It's a story about first love told in a delicate and sensual way. There are many quiet moments in the film, but the chemistry between the two young actors, their longing and confusion around their budding romance, fill in all the silent gaps between dialogue. It's also so beautiful to look at, as it was shot on site in Italy. The golden, sunny countryside is so inviting. Don't be surprised if you are swept away to the first time you fell in love (or got your heart broken) when you watch this movie. *swoon*

If you are looking for a movie about pseuds, you needn't look further.

After the 15 minute mark, I was hoping that the golfers from Michael Haneke's "Funny Games" would arrive and illustrate their "knee-driver" technique. Later, the whole family could be given lessons (including the (oh so) lovable Olly) in swimming in the local pond while being tied, gagged and weighted.

Unfortunately, my hopes were dashed and I had to endure Pa's lecture on the lovable Olly and the tribulations of life to the sobbing Elio. So sad!
