Anyone who says they don’t make touching movie dramas like they used to should check out this movie filled with universal emotions.

A simmering summer longing is brought touchingly alive in Call Me By Your Name, a film that refreshingly breaks out of the gay niche to speak to anyone who has ever loved and lost.

Plot and social commentary take a backseat in the picture, which is more concerned with subtle gestures and whispered words. Call Me By Your Name thus is no big message movie but an extremely intimate and personal story that taps into universal emotions.

Highlighted by a mesmerizingly good Timothée Chalamet performance - amid a top-notch cast - and featuring an all-time great final reel monologue, Call Me By Your Name might well be the best film you'll see all year.
