- 1. The usurper.
- 2. Caro? He's here.
- 3. - Professor Perlman.
- Welcome, welcome.
- 4. - Thank you so much for having me.
- Oh, my goodness.
- 5. You're bigger than your picture.
- 6. Well, I couldn't get
all of me in the photo.
- 7. That's the problem.
- 8. He seems very confident.
- 9. - Mrs. Perlman.
- 10. Oliver. Very nice to meet you.
- 11. - Thank you for having me in your home.
- 12. Where's Elio?
- 13. I'll go down.
- 14. Elio?
- 15. - You must be exhausted.
- What gave me away?
- 16. Darling, come help Oliver
take his things up to his room.
- 17. - He's already here?
- 18. Every single one of these will.
- 19. Elio, Oliver. Oliver, Elio.
- 20. - How you doing?
- Nice to meet you. Elio.
- 21. You must be exhausted.
- 22. - A little bit.
- Come, come, come.
- 23. May I bring your things up to your room?
- 24. - Sure. Yeah.
- My room?
- 25. Follow him.
- 26. - You're very welcome here.
- 27. Our home is your home.
- 28. You're leaving?
- 29. - Hello.
- 30. Nice to meet you.
- 31. My room is now your room.
- 32. I'll be next door.
- 33. We have to share the bathroom.
- 34. It's my only way out.
- 35. We're being called for dinner.
- 36. Sorry.
- 37. Yeah.
- 38. We're being called for dinner.
- 39. Yeah, I'm probably gonna pass.
- 40. Will you make an excuse for me
to your mom, though?
- 41. Thanks, man.
- 42. So, this is your old room, huh?
- 43. Thanks.
- 44. Later.
- 45. I'll take care of the tart.
- 46. Look at this.
- 47. Good morning, Professor.
- 48. - Good morning.
- Back from the dead.
- 49. - Was I out that long?
- It seemed like it, huh?
- 50. - How are you?
- I... Well, rested now.
- 51. - Thank you.
- I'm glad.
- 52. Would you like some espresso?
- 53. I would love some. Thank you very much.
- 54. This looks amazing.
I didn't take your seat, did I?
- 55. No, no, no. It's okay. Please.
- 56. Did you...
Did you recover from your trip?
- 57. I did. Yeah, big time.
- 58. - Thank you.
- 59. I could show you around.
- 60. That'd be great. Thank you.
- 61. Is there a... Is there a bank in town?
- 62. I'd love to start
an account while I'm here.
- 63. Let me do it.
- 64. Sorry.
- 65. - It happens to the best of us.
- Yeah, well...
- 66. None of our residents has ever
had a local bank account.
- 67. Really?
- 68. Should I take him to Montodine?
- 69. I think they're closed
for summer vacation.
- 70. You try Crema.
- 71. Crema?
- 72. Thank you.
- 73. Is this your orchard?
- 74. These are Annella's trees.
- 75. Peaches, cherries, apricots...
- 76. Pomegranate.
- 77. Have another egg.
- 78. Oh, stupid.
- 79. No, no, no. I know myself too well.
- 80. If I have a second,
I'm just gonna have a third,
- 81. and then a fourth, and then you're just
gonna have to roll me out of here.
- 82. - Delicious.
- 83. Thank you.
- 84. Shall I give him Anchise's bike?
- 85. So, what does one do around here?
- 86. Wait for the summer to end.
- 87. Yeah?
- 88. What do you do in the winter?
- 89. - Wait for summer to come?
- Well, we only come here for Christmas
- 90. and some other vacations.
- 91. - Christmas? I thought you...
- And Easter as well.
- 92. - Thought you were Jewish.
- Well, we are Jewish,
- 93. but also American, Italian, French.
- 94. Somewhat atypical combination.
- 95. Besides my family, you're probably
- 96. the only other Jew
to set foot in this town.
- 97. I'm from a small town in New England.
- 98. I know what it's like
to be the odd Jew out.
- 99. So, what do you do around here?
- 100. Just read books.
- 101. Transcribe music. Swim at the river.
- 102. - Yeah?
- Go out at night.
- 103. - I don't know.
- That sounds fun.
- 104. All right, buddy, thanks for the help.
- 105. Sorry. Sorry about that.
- 106. It's all right.
- 107. All right, later.
- 108. What do you have there?
- 109. That should all be...
- 110. What is this?
- 111. These are the continuation
of these archaeology department...
- 112. These are archaeology?
- 113. Yeah, those are archaeology.
The rest of these should be history.
- 114. Okay.
- 115. - More apricot juice?
- 116. - Here, tesoro.
- Thank you.
- 117. Help yourself, darling.
- 118. Thanks.
- 119. Help yourself to some more.
- 120. The word "apricot"
comes from the Arabic.
- 121. It's like the words "algebra,"
- 122. It derives from an Arabic noun
- 123. combined with the Arabic article "al"
- 124. The origin of our Italian albicocca
- 125. is al-barquq.
- 126. It's amazing that today in Israel
and many Arab countries,
- 127. the fruit's referred to
by a totally different name, mismish.
- 128. I may have to disagree
with you there, Professor.
- 129. I'm gonna talk etymology,
so just bear with me a second.
- 130. You're right in the case
that most Latin words
- 131. do find their origins in Greek words.
- 132. However, in the case of "apricot,"
- 133. it's a little bit more
of a complicated journey.
- 134. How so?
- 135. Well, here, the Greek actually
takes over from the Latin.
- 136. Latin word being
praecoquum or precoquere.
- 137. So it's, "precook" or "pre-ripen,"
as you know.
- 138. To be precocious or premature.
- 139. And the Byzantines, to go on,
then borrowed praecox,
- 140. which became prekokkia,
which then became berikokki,
- 141. which is how the Arabs got al-barquq.
- 142. That's courtesy of Philology 101.
- 143. Flying colors.
- 144. He does this every year.
- 145. It's about drink time. Let's go here.
- 146. - Ciao, Romano.
- Ciao, Oliver.
- 147. - How are you?
- All good.
- 148. Ciao, boys!
- 149. All good?
- 150. All good!
- 151. Let's see. What have we got?
- 152. - Can you start please?
- Of course!
- 153. Good morning, gentlemen.
- 154. How do you know about this place?
- 155. Okay.
- 156. Go, Chiara!
- 157. No, no, no, no, no!
- 158. He's better than the guy
who came last year.
- 159. Remember?
- 160. Get in there!
- 161. Much better!
See how cute he is.
- 162. Elio, water!
- 163. Perfect timing.
- 164. What's the matter? Are you all right?
- 165. - What, pinch a nerve?
- I'm okay.
- 166. Here. Hold this.
- 167. Trust me. I'm about to be a doctor.
- 168. Hey, hey, come here.
See? That's the problem.
- 169. You're too stressed.
- 170. - You just gotta relax a little bit.
- I am relaxing.
- 171. Marzia, come here for a minute.
- 172. Back me up here.
- 173. - Feel that. Right there?
- 174. - It's too tight, right?
- 175. - He needs to relax.
- 176. Later.
- 177. You should relax more.
- 178. Okay, guys, ready?
- 179. Okay, our ball, our ball, our ball.
- 180. Twelve serving 11.
- 181. Mine, mine, mine, mine.
- 182. Go, go, go. Yeah, good.
It's yours, it's yours.
- 183. Sweetheart, Auntie Marcella and
the others are coming over for dinner.
- 184. Is Oliver staying with us or going out?
- 185. Don't know.
- 186. What a movie star!
- 187. Yes, those Americans...
- 188. Sparkling wine!
- 189. He's late.
- 190. Don't you think...
- 191. Don't you think he's impolite
when he says, "Later"?
- 192. Arrogant.
- 193. I don't think he's arrogant.
- 194. Just watch.
- 195. This is how he'll say good-bye
to us when the time comes.
- 196. With his... "Later."
- 197. Meanwhile, we'll have to put up with him
for six long weeks.
- 198. Won't we, darling?
- 199. I think he's shy.
- 200. You'll grow to like him.
- 201. What if I grow to hate him?
- 202. Oh, no, sweetheart.
- 203. - Take his plates away.
- Very well, madam.
- 204. Darling?
- 205. Elio, play something.
- 206. I don't want to.
- 207. Why not?
- 208. Because I don't want to.
- 209. Why don't you go
to Moscazzano with others?
- 210. Because I don't want to.
- 211. You're spoiling everyone's fun.
- 212. Play well, darling.
- 213. - Hey.
- 214. What are you doing?
- 215. Reading.
- 216. How come you're not with everyone else
down by the river?
- 217. - I have an allergy. It's...
- Yeah, me too.
- 218. Maybe we have the same one.
- 219. Why don't you and I go swimming?
- 220. - Right now?
- 221. Come on. Let's go.
- 222. Do we have to go right now?
- 223. - I'll go get changed.
- 224. Meet you downstairs.
- 225. See you downstairs.
- 226. Elio, what are you doing?
- 227. Reading my music.
- 228. No, you're not.
- 229. - Thinking, then.
- 230. About what?
- 231. It's private.
- 232. You're not gonna tell me?
- 233. I'm not gonna tell you.
- 234. He's not gonna tell me
what he's thinking about.
- 235. Elio.
- 236. I guess I'll go hang out with your mom.
- 237. More apricot juice, please.
- 238. That's a good boy.
- 239. Thank God you're helping me.
- 240. Sounds nice.
- 241. Thought you didn't like it.
- 242. Play it again, will you?
- 243. Follow me.
- 244. That sounds different.
Did you change it?
- 245. - Well, I changed it a little bit.
- 246. I just played it the way Liszt
would have played it
- 247. if he'd altered Bach's version.
- 248. Play that again.
- 249. - Play what again?
- The thing you played outside.
- 250. You want me to play
the thing I played outside?
- 251. - Please.
- Of course.
- 252. I can't believe you changed it again.
- 253. - I changed it a little bit.
- Yeah. Why?
- 254. I just played it the way
Busoni would've played it
- 255. if he'd altered Liszt's version.
- 256. And what is wrong with Bach
the way Bach would've played...
- 257. Bach never wrote it for the guitar.
- 258. In fact, we're not even sure
- 259. - Bach wrote it at all.
- Forget I asked.
- 260. It's young Bach.
- 261. He dedicated it to his brother.
- 262. Hey, Professor.
- 263. Hello.
- 264. Here, please.
- 265. I need help.
- 266. Just be honest.
- 267. How bad is it?
- 268. I think your insights here
are persuasive, but...
- 269. Have you been to the river?
- 270. Mafalda!
- 271. Isn't she beautiful?
- 272. Elio.
- 273. You sleeping?
- 274. I was.
- 275. Listen to this drivel.
Tell me what you think.
- 276. - Wait.
- 277. Can't hear you.
- 278. "For the early Greeks,
- 279. "Heidegger contends,
this underlying hiddenness
- 280. "is constitutive of the way beings are,
- 281. "not only in relation to themselves
- 282. "but also in relation
to other entities generally.
- 283. "In other words,
they do not construe hiddenness
- 284. "merely or primarily in terms of
entities' relations to human beings."
- 285. Does that make any sense to you?
- 286. Doesn't make any sense to me.
- 287. I don't think it makes
any sense to your dad, either.
- 288. Maybe it did when you wrote it.
- 289. That might be the kindest thing
anybody has said to me in months.
- 290. "Kind"?
- 291. Yep. Kind.
- 292. - Hey, Elio.
- 293. Come here.
- 294. What's going on?
- 295. Is he trying to get it on with her?
- 296. Elio, he already succeeded?
- 297. What do I know?
- 298. I'd love to be in his shoes.
- 299. Who wouldn't love to be in her shoes?
- 300. She wants him, no matter what!
- 301. Coming?
- 302. I'll come later.
- 303. Are you with me because
you're mad at Chiara?
- 304. Why would I be mad at Chiara?
- 305. Because of him.
- 306. Because of who?
- 307. Of Oliver.
- 308. Turn around.
- 309. Meet me here tomorrow night?
- 310. Wait for me!
- 311. Come on.
- 312. We almost had sex last night...
- 313. Marzia and me.
- 314. Well, why didn't you?
- 315. I don't know.
- 316. Well, you know, it's better
to have tried and failed, right?
- 317. All I had to do was find the courage
to reach out and touch.
- 318. She would have said yes.
- 319. Well, try again later.
- 320. Try what later?
- 321. I just heard
from the people in Sirmione.
- 322. They say they've come up with something.
- 323. Fantastic.
- 324. Going there today.
- 325. - Would you like to come along?
- I would love to. Thank you.
- 326. - Smell this.
- Can I come, too?
- 327. On the condition you remain silent.
- 328. Silent as in,
"He has too many opinions,"
- 329. or silent as in,
"Just not telling anybody
- 330. "what an amazing thing you've dug up"?
- 331. Well, nothing has been dug up.
- 332. It's what has been brought out,
out of the water.
- 333. What are you doing?
- 334. Going to Lake Garda with my dad.
- 335. He wants to show Oliver
where he's dredging.
- 336. Can you tell him I came by?
- 337. He's inside with my dad, helping him.
- 338. You were amazing last night,
on the dance floor.
- 339. - He's a good dancer.
- A good dancer.
- 340. He's good-looking too.
- 341. - Want to get us together?
- 342. Come in.
- 343. Dad always sits up front
with Anchise to navigate.
- 344. She seems to like you a lot.
- 345. She's more beautiful
than she was last year.
- 346. I saw her naked on a night swim once.
- 347. Great body.
- 348. Trying to get me to like her?
- 349. What would be the harm in that?
- 350. No, no harm.
- 351. Just typically like to go at those
things on my own, if you don't mind.
- 352. I'll drive today!
- 353. Just don't play at being the good host.
- 354. Anchise, take the afternoon off.
- 355. What's going on, boys?
- 356. Oliver, come. Sit up front.
Be my navigator.
- 357. What? What?
- 358. - Dr. Roseburg.
- 359. - Benvenuto.
- Look who's here.
- 360. - He's grown a bit, eh?
- And this is Oliver.
- 361. Sammy! Come on!
- 362. Truce?
- 363. Hey, boys.
- 364. The ship went down in 1827
on the way to Isola del Garda
- 365. Gossip has it this statue
was a gift from Count Lechi
- 366. to his lover,
contralto Adelaide Malanotte.
- 367. There are four known sets,
after the Praxiteles originals.
- 368. This fellow's at number three.
- 369. The Emperor Hadrian had a pair,
dug up at Tivoli,
- 370. but one of the more philistine
of the Farnese Popes melted them down
- 371. and had them recast as a
particularly voluptuous Venus.
- 372. Who'd like to go for a swim
before we head back?
- 373. We're all such pros. If I got my own
statue, it would probably be on there.
- 374. Elio!
- 375. Oliver!
- 376. - I have to go. I have to go.
- Hey! Hey!
- 377. I have to go.
- 378. Goodness.
- 379. - Are you going, too?
- No, no.
- 380. I should stay
and do some work on my book.
- 381. Come on. How about a drink
to celebrate the day?
- 382. - Okay, maybe just one.
- All right!
- 383. Marzia?
- 384. The Cosmic Fragments by Heraclitus.
- 385. The meaning of the river flowing
is not that all things are changing
- 386. so that we cannot encounter them twice,
- 387. but that some things
stay the same only by changing.
- 388. Sorry, Elio.
I brought some clean clothes.
- 389. Leave the door open.
- 390. - Thanks.
- You're welcome.
- 391. Darling, have you seen my Heptaméron?
- 392. Mafalda.
- 393. It's in German.
- 394. Okay.
- 395. I can't remember where we left off,
but I think you'll like this one.
- 396. Come here, darling.
- 397. So, I'll translate, huh?
- 398. "A handsome young knight
is madly in love with a princess.
- 399. "And she, too, is in love with him,
- 400. "though she seems not to be
entirely aware of it.
- 401. "Despite the friendship..."
- 402. "... that blossoms between them,
- 403. "or perhaps because of
that very friendship,
- 404. "the young knight finds himself so..."
- 405. "... so humbled and speechless
- 406. "that he's totally unable to bring up
the subject of his love.
- 407. "Till one day, he asks the princess
- 408. "Is it better to speak or to die?"
- 409. I'd never have the courage
to ask a question like that.
- 410. I doubt that.
- 411. Hey, Elly-Belly.
- 412. You do know that
you can always talk to us.
- 413. My mom's been reading
this 16th-century French romance.
- 414. She read some of it to my dad and I
the day the lights went out.
- 415. Yeah, about the knight that doesn't know
whether to speak or die?
- 416. Right.
- 417. So, does he or doesn't he?
- 418. "Better to speak," she said.
- 419. But she's on her guard.
- 420. She senses a trap somewhere.
- 421. So, does he speak?
- 422. No.
- 423. He fudges.
- 424. It figures. He's French.
- 425. I gotta go to town in a little bit
to pick some things up.
- 426. I can go. I'm not doing anything today.
- 427. Then why don't we go together?
- 428. Right now?
- 429. Yeah. Right now.
- 430. That is, of course, unless you have
more important business going on.
- 431. "That is, of course, unless you have
more important business going on."
- 432. Mind if I put this in your bag?
- 433. Yes, please.
- 434. I straightened the wheels
and inflated the tires.
- 435. Perfect. Thanks.
- 436. I fell. I was coming home the other day,
and I scraped myself pretty badly.
- 437. Anchise insisted on applying
some sort of witches' brew.
- 438. I think it helped.
- 439. Hold this for a second, will you?
- 440. - Want one?
- 441. Not bad, huh?
- 442. Not bad at all.
- 443. I thought you didn't smoke.
- 444. I don't.
- 445. - So, World War II, huh?
- No. This is World War I.
- 446. You'd have to be at least 80 years old
to have known any of them.
- 447. I never even heard
of the Battle of Piave.
- 448. Battle of Piave was one of the most
lethal battles of World War I.
- 449. Hundred and seventy thousand
- 450. Is there anything you don't know?
- 451. I know nothing, Oliver.
- 452. Well, you seem to know
more than anybody else around here.
- 453. Well, if you only knew how little
I know about the things that matter.
- 454. What things that matter?
- 455. You know what things.
- 456. Why are you telling me this?
- 457. 'Cause I thought you should know.
- 458. Because you thought I should know?
- 459. 'Cause I wanted you to know?
- 460. Because I wanted you to know.
- 461. Because I wanted you to know.
- 462. 'Cause I wanted you to know.
- 463. Because there's no one else
I can say this to but you.
- 464. Are you saying
what I think you're saying?
- 465. Don't go anywhere. Stay right here.
- 466. You know I'm not going anywhere.
- 467. They mixed up all of my pages.
- 468. I'm gonna have to
retype this whole thing.
- 469. I'm not gonna have anything to work on
- 470. This is gonna set me back a whole day.
- 471. Damn it.
- 472. Shouldn't have said anything.
- 473. Just pretend you never did.
- 474. Does that mean we're on speaking terms
but not really?
- 475. It means we can't talk
about those kinds of things.
- 476. Okay?
- 477. We just can't.
- 478. Let's go, American!
- 479. - Ready?
- Let's go.
- 480. Pretty much.
- 481. Oh, my God.
- 482. - Thirsty?
- 483. Good morning, ma'am.
- 484. Excuse me.
- 485. Could I ask for a glass of water?
- 486. Il Duce.
- 487. "People of Italy!"
- 488. That's Italy.
- 489. - Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- 490. Come on!
- 491. This is my spot. It's all mine.
- 492. Come here to read.
- 493. Can't tell you the number of books
I've read here.
- 494. Oh, my God, it's freezing.
- 495. Spring is in the mountains.
- 496. The Alpi Orobie.
- 497. The water comes
straight down from there.
- 498. I like the way you say things.
- 499. I don't know why you're always
putting yourself down, though.
- 500. So you won't, I guess.
- 501. You really that afraid of what I think?
- 502. You're making things
very difficult for me.
- 503. I love this, Oliver.
- 504. What?
- 505. Everything.
- 506. Us, you mean?
- 507. It's not bad.
- 508. It's not bad.
- 509. Better now?
- 510. No, no, no.
- 511. - We should go.
- 512. I know myself. Okay?
And we've been good.
- 513. We haven't done anything
to be ashamed of,
- 514. and that's a good thing.
- 515. I wanna be good.
- 516. Okay?
- 517. Am I offending you?
- 518. Just don't.
- 519. I think it's starting to get infected.
- 520. We can stop by the pharmacist's
on the way back.
- 521. Excellent idea.
- 522. So we got the government
of Bettino Craxi...
- 523. Because we don't do anything
but talk, talk, talk.
- 524. Let me speak.
- 525. We have five parties
that do nothing but fight.
- 526. Smoke and shut up!
Let them speak, him, her.
- 527. I'd like to know what they think too.
- 528. Annella, what do you think?
A five party government!
- 529. Darling, I think
it's the historic compromise...
- 530. Don't say that. Compromises are tragic.
- 531. You've changed
since you inherited this place.
- 532. What's that got to do with it?
- 533. What are you saying?
- 534. You're mad, darling.
- 535. You asshole!
- 536. - She's right.
- And you don't say anything to her.
- 537. Say something.
- 538. You're resigned.
- 539. Why don't we talk
about the death of Buñuel?
- 540. Buñuel was a genius.
- 541. - Know him?
- Cinema isn't the answer.
- 542. Cinema is a mirror of reality
and it's a filter.
- 543. They broadcast The Phantom of Liberty
with constant interr...
- 544. Everyone loves Buñuel!
- 545. Let's hear his opinion.
- 546. He doesn't know anything about Italy!
- 547. Say something. Give us your impression.
- 548. Do you have an impression?
- 549. Darling, he's American.
- 550. That doesn't mean stupid!
- 551. Just stop.
- 552. I don't give an easy ride
to some politicians.
- 553. She didn't say that.
- 554. I'm going to go mad.
- 555. What's the matter?
- 556. What's wrong?
- 557. It's nothing. It happens all the time.
- 558. - Mafalda, ice?
- It's in the fridge.
- 559. You get used to absolutely everything.
- 560. Don't you realize
you're mixing everything up?
- 561. What are you talking about?
- 562. There's no more politics, nothing.
He's left too.
- 563. Elio?
- 564. Elio.
- 565. You all right?
- 566. Sit for a second.
- 567. If you insist.
- 568. - That wasn't my fault, right?
- 569. I'm a mess.
- 570. Well, the kitchen table sure is.
- 571. Where did you learn to do that?
- 572. My bubbe used to do this for us
when we were sick.
- 573. Trust me, it helps.
- 574. I used to have one of these.
- 575. - You used to?
- 576. How come you never wear it?
- 577. My mother says
we are Jews of discretion.
- 578. Well...
- 579. I guess that works for your mother.
- 580. Funny witch.
- 581. Fuck, you'll kill me if you do that.
- 582. I hope not.
- 583. Hey, are you leaving?
- 584. - Where's Elio?
- He's inside.
- 585. He had a bit of a nosebleed
during lunch, and he's just resting.
- 586. - Really?
- 587. - Okay. Bye.
- I'll be back in a minute.
- 588. Don't go anywhere.
- 589. You okay?
- 590. Are we going out?
- 591. I don't know if I can go out.
If my mom sees, she'll worry.
- 592. - She will?
- Yeah, she's a pain.
- 593. Where's Oliver?
- 594. Don't ask me.
- 595. Where's Oliver?
- 596. - Didn't he go out?
- Would you like a smoothie?
- 597. No, thank you. We're having dinner soon.
- 598. All right.
- 599. I'm going out tonight.
- 600. - Don't make me worry.
- What are you talking about?
- 601. This is no good, madam.
- 602. - Let him do his own thing.
- 603. Why's she hassling me? I'm 17.
- 604. She's worried about you.
- 605. You like him, don't you? Oliver?
- 606. Everyone likes Oliver.
- 607. I think he likes you too.
- 608. More than you do.
- 609. Is that your impression?
- 610. - No, he told me.
- When did he say that?
- 611. A while ago.
- 612. Mafalda, do you know where Oliver is?
- 613. I have no idea.
- 614. Traitor.
- 615. Traitor.
- 616. This is Craxi.
I draw the center of Craxi...
- 617. - Hey.
- 618. It's me. Is that Marzia?
- 619. Sure it is! Can't you tell?
- 620. Sorry.
- 621. Is that for me?
- 622. Thanks.
- 623. Do you really read a lot?
- 624. I love reading too,
but I don't tell anyone.
- 625. Why not?
- 626. I don't know.
- 627. I think...
- 628. people who read are...
- 629. kind of secretive.
- 630. They hide who they really are.
- 631. Do you hide who you really are?
- 632. No, not with you.
- 633. Not with me?
- 634. Well, maybe a bit.
- 635. What do you mean?
- 636. You know exactly what I mean.
- 637. Why do you say that?
- 638. Why?
- 639. Because...
- 640. I think...
- 641. you're going to hurt me,
- 642. and I don't want to be hurt.
- 643. You're so hard.
- 644. Wait.
- 645. Kiss me.
- 646. - Is that good?
- 647. Are you lying?
- 648. - Oh, fuck, I'm sorry.
- It's all right.
- 649. Are you mad at me? Are you angry?
- 650. What's so funny? Why are you laughing?
- 651. Leave me alone.
- 652. Fuck, that felt good.
- 653. Please don't avoid me.
- 654. It kills me.
Can't stand thinking you hate me.
- 655. Your silence is killing me.
I'd sooner die than know you hate me.
- 656. I am such a pussy.
- 657. Way over the top.
- 658. Can't stand the silence.
- 659. Need to speak to you.
- 660. Did someone have a good night
- 661. Not really.
- 662. Well, you must be tired, then.
- 663. Or were you playing poker, too?
- 664. I don't play poker.
- 665. Several hundred color slides
of our boxer and the others like him
- 666. arrived yesterday from Berlin.
- 667. We should start cataloging them.
- 668. That'll keep us busy till lunch,
- 669. Sure.
- 670. Beautiful, aren't they?
- 671. They're all so incredibly sensual.
- 672. Because these are more Hellenistic
than 5th century Athenian.
- 673. Most likely sculpted
under the influence of Praxiteles.
- 674. Right.
- 675. Greatest sculptor in antiquity.
- 676. Grow up. I'll see you at midnight.
- 677. Grow up. I'll see you at midnight.
- 678. Muscles are firm.
Look at his stomach, for example.
- 679. Not a straight body in these statues.
They're all curved.
- 680. Sometimes impossibly curved.
And so nonchalant.
- 681. Hence their ageless ambiguity.
- 682. As if they're daring you to desire them.
- 683. Don't forget, Isaac and Mounir
are coming for dinner.
- 684. - Also known as Sonny and Cher.
- 685. I'd like you to wear that shirt
they gave you for your birthday.
- 686. No.
- 687. - Darling, they got it for you in Miami.
- I'm sorry. It's too big. It's too big.
- 688. - Come on. It will make them so happy.
- It looks ridiculous on me.
- 689. I'll try it on for Oliver.
- 690. If Oliver thinks
I look like a scarecrow in it,
- 691. I'm not wearing it.
- 692. Oliver?
- 693. Hey, what time you got?
- 694. It's 2:00.
- 695. - Well... Later.
- 696. Mafalda.
- 697. I won't be here for dinner.
- 698. Okay, Mr. Oliver.
- 699. Hello, Mafalda.
- 700. Marzia.
- 701. Where are we going?
- 702. You'll see.
- 703. Stop it!
- 704. - How are you, buddy?
- 705. - It's been ages.
- It has, yes.
- 706. - How are you?
- You've grown.
- 707. - How are you.
- I'm good.
- 708. Good to see you.
- 709. Remember Marzia from last year.
- 710. Hello.
- 711. - Marzia, remember Isaac?
- The girl from Paris?
- 712. Good to meet you.
- 713. Want to eat with us tonight?
- 714. No, no. I have to go.
- 715. - You're sure?
- 716. - Okay.
- Have a nice evening.
- 717. Goodbye.
- 718. This right here is the brand-new china
that you guys so kindly sent to us.
- 719. It looks wonderful.
Come here, Mounir, Mounir.
- 720. - Come, come, come.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.
- 721. I can't put it on now.
They've already met me.
- 722. - Yes, you can.
- It'll look like a put-up job.
- 723. - Papa, it'll...
- 724. - Papa, it'll look like a put-up job.
- No misbehaving tonight.
- 725. No... No laughing.
When I tell you to play, you'll play.
- 726. You're too old not to accept
people for who they are.
- 727. What's wrong with them?
What's wrong with them?
- 728. You call them Sonny and Cher
behind their backs.
- 729. - That's what Mom calls them...
- Then you accept gifts from them.
- 730. The only person that reflects badly on
- 731. Is it because they're gay
or because they're ridiculous?
- 732. If you know as much about economics
at Mounir's age,
- 733. you'll be a very wise man, indeed.
- 734. And a credit to me.
- 735. Now, just get into this, you.
- 736. These are unbelievable. I just...
- 737. Hey, look who's here.
- 738. Sorry. I have to go to bed.
I'm sorry. I'm so tired.
- 739. Thank you.
- 740. Elio. Elio.
- 741. - Thank you.
- Good night.
- 742. Good night.
- 743. Do I know you?
- 744. Thank you again for everything.
- 745. - They're never gonna make it.
- No, no. They're fine.
- 746. I'm glad you came.
- 747. Yeah, I'm nervous.
- 748. I like what you've done with the place.
- 749. It's nice.
- 750. You okay?
- 751. Me okay.
- 752. - Can I kiss you?
- Yes, please.
- 753. What are you doing?
- 754. Nothing.
- 755. Does this make you happy?
- 756. You're not gonna get
a nosebleed on me, are you?
- 757. I'm not gonna get...
- 758. Off, off, off, off, off.
- 759. Yeah. Just pull it.
- 760. Or I'll pull it.
- 761. Oliver.
- 762. Call me by your name,
and I'll call you by mine.
- 763. Elio.
- 764. Oliver.
- 765. Elio.
- 766. - Oliver.
- 767. Did we make noise?
- 768. Nothing to worry about.
- 769. I don't know.
Mafalda always looks for signs.
- 770. Well, she's not gonna find any.
- 771. You wore that shirt
the first day you were here.
- 772. Will you give it to me when you go?
- 773. Let's go swimming.
- 774. Are you gonna hold
what happened last night against me?
- 775. No.
- 776. Elio. Come here.
- 777. Take your trunks off.
- 778. Well, that's promising.
- 779. You're hard again.
- 780. Good.
- 781. Professor, I got your note.
Thank you for reminding me.
- 782. I'm gonna go into town and pick
up those typed pages today,
- 783. so maybe this afternoon
would be a good time to...
- 784. Later.
- 785. We'll look them over later,
before you leave.
- 786. Okay. So later.
- 787. Later.
- 788. Oliver.
- 789. You're not sick of me yet?
- 790. No, I just...
I just wanted to be with you.
- 791. I'll... I'm gonna... I'll go.
- 792. Do you know how happy I am
that we slept together?
- 793. I don't know.
- 794. Of course, you don't know.
- 795. I don't want you to regret anything.
- 796. And I hate the thought that maybe
I may have messed you up or...
- 797. I don't want either of us
to pay for this,
- 798. - one way or another.
- No, I...
- 799. It's not like
I'm gonna tell anyone.
- 800. You're not gonna be, like,
getting in trouble.
- 801. That's not what I'm talking about.
- 802. Are you happy I came here?
- 803. I would kiss you if I could.
- 804. Times change.
- 805. Thank God we had the partisans.
- 806. I know, but times have changed.
- 807. What do you think of Bettino?
- 808. - I don't like him.
- I like him.
- 809. I'm happy, actually.
- 810. I don't know. We'll see.
- 811. Anyway, they make the rules.
- 812. Pasquina!
- 813. Hello.
- 814. Hello, ma'am.
- 815. - Tortelli cremaschi.
- 816. Oh, fuck.
- 817. Fuck.
- 818. Fuck.
- 819. What did you do?
- 820. - Nothing.
- 821. Oh, I see.
- 822. You've moved on
to the plant kingdom already.
- 823. What's next? Minerals?
- 824. I suppose you've already
given up animals.
- 825. You know that's me.
- 826. I'm sick, aren't I?
- 827. I wish everybody was as sick as you.
- 828. Please don't do that.
- 829. - You want to see something sick?
- Please don't do that.
- 830. You want to see something sick?
- 831. Please don't do this.
- 832. Hey. Please don't do it.
- 833. Why are you doing this to me?
- 834. - What are you doing?
- 835. - You're fucking hurting me.
- Then don't fight.
- 836. Sorry.
- 837. It's okay.
- 838. It's okay.
- 839. It's okay.
- 840. I don't want you to go.
- 841. God, we wasted so many days.
- 842. Why didn't you give me a sign?
- 843. - I did. I did.
- You didn't give me a sign.
- 844. When?
- 845. You remember
when we were playing volleyball
- 846. and I touched you?
- 847. Just to show you that I liked you?
- 848. And the way you reacted
made me feel like I'd molested you.
- 849. - I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
- No, it's fine.
- 850. I just decided
I should keep my distance.
- 851. I don't know.
- 852. I come out here for hours
almost every night.
- 853. I didn't know that.
- 854. That's funny, I...
- 855. I thought that...
- 856. Yeah, I know what you thought.
- 857. Stop. Stop.
- 858. "For Oliver.
- 859. "From Elio."
- 860. Elio?
- 861. You disappeared for three days.
- 862. I had to work.
- 863. You completely disappeared.
- 864. Yeah, I don't know. I just...
- 865. I had a lot to do.
- 866. Am I your girl?
- 867. Oliver has to go to Bergamo
for a few days.
- 868. Research at the university.
- 869. Then he'll fly home from Linate.
- 870. But what about Elio?
- 871. Maybe it could be nice
for the two of them
- 872. to get away for a couple of days, no?
- 873. What do you think?
- 874. You know you've been
our favorite student?
- 875. - You must come back.
- You sure you're not just saying that?
- 876. - Oliver.
- Thank you very much, Professor.
- 877. Oh, man.
- 878. Please, please come back soon.
- 879. Come back? I'm just going home to pack.
I'm moving here.
- 880. You're welcome.
- 881. Oh, well...
- 882. - Thank you guys so much.
- Of course.
- 883. Oliver, Oliver.
- 884. - Come back.
- It's been...
- 885. Come here, come here.
- 886. It's been amazing. Thank you guys.
- 887. Well, later, Perlmans.
- 888. Later. Later, later, later.
- 889. Tell Elio to call when you get there.
- 890. Oh, no.
- 891. Come for dinner tonight.
- 892. Bring Marzia.
- 893. Bye, darling.
- 894. - What?
- 895. - What?
- 896. Oh, to see without my eyes
- 897. The first time that you kissed me
- 898. Boundless by the time I cried
- 899. I built your walls around me
- 900. Yes!
- 901. White noise
What an awful sound
- 902. Oliver!
- 903. Elio!
- 904. Elio!
- 905. Hand of God, deliver me
- 906. Oh, woe is me
- 907. The first time that you touched me
- 908. - Oliver!
- 909. Oh, will wonders never cease?
- 910. Blessed be the mystery of love
- 911. Lord, I no longer believe
- 912. Yes!
- 913. Drowned in living waters
- 914. Cursed by the love that I received
- 915. From my brother's daughter
- 916. Like Hephaestion who died
- 917. Alexander's lover
- 918. Now I'm prone to misery
- 919. The birthmark on your...
- 920. Oh, God.
- 921. And I'm feeling low
- 922. Understand I'm feeling low
- 923. You hear that?
- 924. Wait, wait, wait.
- 925. No, no, no, it's this way.
- 926. Come on. Come on. You're missing it.
- 927. Come on.
- 928. Don't stop.
- 929. A kiss is not enough...
- 930. This. This.
- 931. This. You.
- 932. You are...
- 933. Love my way
- 934. It's a new road
- 935. I follow...
- 936. If you'll excuse me...
- 937. Just one second.
- 938. One second!
- 939. They'd dearly make us pay
- 940. For laughing in their faces
- 941. And making it our way
- 942. There's emptiness behind their eyes
- 943. There's dust in all their hearts
- 944. I saw them last year.
- 945. Richard Butler... fantastic!
- 946. Really? We saw them in concert too.
- 947. We hitchhiked to London.
- 948. What'd she say?
- 949. It's a new road
- 950. I follow
- 951. Where my mind goes
- 952. Excuse me, excuse me, excuse me.
- 953. Did you get your passport?
- 954. You get your passport?
- 955. Mafalda?
- 956. Mom?
- 957. Yeah, it's me.
- 958. Yeah, everything is fine.
I'm at the station...
- 959. in Clusone.
- 960. Listen, Mom, can you...
- 961. Can you come get me, Mom?
- 962. How are you?
- 963. Good.
- 964. I read the book you bought me.
- 965. The poems...
- 966. They're really beautiful.
- 967. I love that... Antonia Pozzi.
- 968. I'm sorry, excuse me...
- 969. that you're sad.
- 970. I'm saying that because
I wanted to tell you
- 971. I'm not mad at you.
- 972. Not at all.
- 973. I love you, Elio.
- 974. Stay friends?
- 975. For life?
- 976. For life?
- 977. Missed you at dinner.
- 978. So...
- 979. Welcome home.
- 980. Thanks.
- 981. - Oliver enjoyed the trip?
- 982. I think he did.
- 983. You two had a nice friendship.
- 984. Yeah.
- 985. You're too smart not to know how rare,
- 986. how special what you two had was.
- 987. Oliver was Oliver.
- 988. Because it was him.
- 989. Because it was me.
- 990. Oliver may be very intelligent but...
- 991. He was more than intelligent.
- 992. What you two had,
- 993. had everything and nothing
to do with intelligence.
- 994. He was good.
- 995. You're both lucky
to have found each other
- 996. because you, too, are good...
- 997. I think he was better than...
- 998. I think he was better than me.
- 999. I'm sure he'd say
the same thing about you.
- 1000. Yeah. He'd say the same thing.
- 1001. It flatters you both.
- 1002. And when you least expect it,
- 1003. nature has cunning ways
of finding our weakest spot.
- 1004. Just remember, I am here.
- 1005. Right now,
you may not wanna feel anything,
- 1006. maybe you never wanted to feel anything.
- 1007. And maybe it's not to me
you'd want to speak about this things
- 1008. but feel something you obviously did.
- 1009. Look, you had a beautiful friendship.
- 1010. Maybe more than a friendship.
- 1011. And I envy you.
- 1012. In my place, most parents would hope
the whole thing goes away.
- 1013. Pray their sons land on their feet,
- 1014. but I am not such a parent.
- 1015. We rip out so much of ourselves
to be cured of things faster,
- 1016. that we go bankrupt by the age of 30.
- 1017. And have less to offer,
each time we start with someone new.
- 1018. But to make yourself feel nothing
- 1019. so as not to feel anything.
- 1020. What a waste.
- 1021. Have I spoken out of turn?
- 1022. And I'll say one more thing,
- 1023. it'll clear the air.
- 1024. I may have come close
- 1025. but I never had what you two have.
- 1026. Something always held me back
- 1027. or stood in the way.
- 1028. How you live your life is your business.
- 1029. Just remember,
- 1030. our hearts and our bodies
are given to us only once,
- 1031. and before you know it,
your heart's worn out.
- 1032. And as for your body,
- 1033. there comes a point
when no one looks at it
- 1034. much less wants to come near it.
- 1035. Right now, there's sorrow, pain.
- 1036. Don't kill it,
- 1037. and with it, the joy you felt.
- 1038. Does Mom know?
- 1039. I don't think she does.
- 1040. - Have you been to the Gaverine?
- 1041. Latkes.
- 1042. - May I?
- Happy Hanukkah!
- 1043. To you too.
- 1044. She looks a bit weak.
- 1045. She comes highly recommended by...
- 1046. Her special area of study is...
- 1047. I'll get it.

- 1080. I figured.
- 1081. How?
- 1082. Well, from the way your dad spoke to me.
- 1083. He made me feel
like I was a part of the family.
- 1084. Almost like a son-in-law.
- 1085. You're so lucky.
- 1086. My father would have carted me off
to a correctional facility.
- 1087. Elio.
