Call me by your name (2017) dir. Luca Guadagnino
And on that evening when we grow older still we’ll speak about these two
young men as though they were two strangers we met on the train and
whom we admire and want to help along. And we’ll want to call it envy,
because to call it regret would break our hearts.
Call Me by Your Name (2017) // dir. Luca Guadagnino
If you remember everything, I wanted to say, and if you are really like me, then before you leave tomorrow, or when you’re just ready to shut the door of the taxi and have already said goodbye to everyone else and there’s not a thing left to say in this life, then, just this once, turn to me, even in jest, or as an afterthought, which would have meant everything to me when we were together, and, as you did back then, look me in the face, hold my gaze, and call me by your name.

In the weeks we’d been thrown together that summer, our lives had scarcely touched, but we had crossed to the other bank, where time stops and heaven reaches down to earth and gives us that ration of what is from birth divinely ours. We looked the other way. We spoke about everything but. But we’ve always known, and not saying anything now confirmed it all the more. We had found the stars, you and I. And this is given once only.
