Even though they speak mostly English (with plenty of subtitled French & Italian), this is undeniably a foreign film. The location in Italy make it obvious, but the languid pacing is another hallmark of imports. The budding romance takes plenty of time to blossom. Timothée Chalamet plays a 17- year-old who lives with his family in an old villa. When an American doctoral student (Armie Hammer) visits for the summer, their initial indifference grows into desire. It develops slowly, but with a quiet sensuality. Chalamet has deservedly been getting lots of awards buzz because he captures the spontaneous enthuiasim of a teen, while revealing naive confusion and touching depth. Hammer also turns in a strong performance. The expressions of their love is tender and unafraid. Ultimately, it’s a heartfelt, beautifully made story of a powerful emotional bond.
