----- the opening pars from a substantial review by Marco Cerritos at HYPABLE (USA), 3 March 2017 :-
'It may be a gay romance, but shouldn't be limited to LGBT themes and features.
One of the films that united audiences at this year’s Sundance film festival was the steamy romance Call Me By Your Name. A movie so lush and full of life it quickly proved a force to be reckoned with among the institution’s top awards.
It tells the simple story of a young boy’s first romantic encounter in the Italian countryside during the summer of 1983. This may sound conventional but the film’s execution is far from routine, making it stand out as a unique and must-see story.
