Armie Hammer was the Star of this year’s Berlinale with two films screening at the 67th Edition: Final Portrait and Call me by Your Name. On the contrary, Timothee Chalamet is the this Festival’s revelation, a breath of fresh air on screen and in real life. The actors talk about their experience on set with Luca Guadagnino and how developing these characters and their love for each other was a unique experience. Call me by your name describes the essence of first love in the purest and most universal way and Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet reveal their own relationship with passion and desire that their character experience so strongly for the first time.
Call me by your name: It’s the summer of 1983, in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman, (Timothee Chalamet) a 17- year- old American-Italian boy spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa lazily transcribing music and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel). One day Oliver, (Armie Hammer) a charming, 24-year-old American scholar working on his doctorate arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture. Amidst the sun-drenched splendor of this sensual setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
