Emma Kafka’s review published on Letterboxd:
this movie was astonishingly, incredibly beautiful. Every single shot that was composed could stand alone as an entire film and I could still give it an oscar for cinematography. While the film was absolutely visually stunning, the plot seemed too vague. I believe that since I did not read the book I was missing crucial information on not just Elio's thoughts and emotions but that plot itself. It felt that at one point the two despised each other; and the not a long while after, they were together. Besides the main plot, anything else they did was swim, bike, read, and enjoy a summer in Italy. I did not really see these characters grow, though they did have extremely good chemistry.
As for my predictions, I hope this film is nominated for cinematography, though not adapted screenplay.
