- 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. Hey.
- 17. Darling, come help Oliver
take his things up to his room.
- 18. - He's already here?
- 19. Every single one of these will.
- 20. Elio, Oliver. Oliver, Elio.
- 21. - How you doing?
- Nice to meet you. Elio.
- 22. You must be exhausted.
- 23. - A little bit.
- Come, come, come.
- 24. May I bring your things up to your room?
- 25. - Sure. Yeah.
- My room?
- 26. Follow him.
- 27. - You're very welcome here.
- 28. Our home is your home.
- 29. You're leaving?
- 30. - Hello.
- 31. Nice to meet you.
- 32. My room is now your room.
- 33. I'll be next door.
- 34. We have to share the bathroom.
- 35. It's my only way out.
- 36. We're being called for dinner.
- 37. Sorry.
- 38. Yeah.
- 39. We're being called for dinner.
- 40. Yeah, I'm probably gonna pass.
- 41. Will you make an excuse for me
to your mom, though?
- 42. Thanks, man.
- 43. So, this is your old room, huh?
- 44. Thanks.
- 45. Later.
- 46. I'll take care of the tart.
- 47. Look at this.
- 48. Good morning, Professor.
- 49. - Good morning.
- Back from the dead.
- 50. - Was I out that long?
- It seemed like it, huh?
- 51. - How are you?
- I... Well, rested now.
- 52. - Thank you.
- I'm glad.
- 53. Would you like some espresso?
- 54. I would love some. Thank you very much.
- 55. This looks amazing.
I didn't take your seat, did I?
- 56. No, no, no. It's okay. Please.
- 57. Did you...
Did you recover from your trip?
- 58. I did. Yeah, big time.
- 59. - Thank you.
- 60. I could show you around.
- 61. That'd be great. Thank you.
- 62. Is there a... Is there a bank in town?
- 63. I'd love to start
an account while I'm here.
- 64. Let me do it.
- 65. Sorry.
- 66. - It happens to the best of us.
- Yeah, well...
- 67. None of our residents has ever
had a local bank account.
- 68. Really?
- 69. Should I take him to Montodine?
- 70. I think they're closed
for summer vacation.
- 71. You try Crema.
- 72. Crema?
- 73. Thank you.
- 74. Is this your orchard?
- 75. These are Annella's trees.
- 76. Peaches, cherries, apricots...
- 77. Pomegranate.
- 78. Have another egg.
- 79. Oh, stupid.
- 80. No, no, no. I know myself too well.
- 81. If I have a second,
I'm just gonna have a third,
- 82. and then a fourth, and then you're just
gonna have to roll me out of here.
- 83. - Delicious.
- 84. Thank you.
- 85. Shall I give him Anchise's bike?
- 86. So, what does one do around here?
- 87. Wait for the summer to end.
- 88. Yeah?
- 89. What do you do in the winter?
- 90. - Wait for summer to come?
- Well, we only come here for Christmas
- 91. and some other vacations.
- 92. - Christmas? I thought you...
- And Easter as well.
- 93. - Thought you were Jewish.
- Well, we are Jewish,
- 94. but also American, Italian, French.
- 95. Somewhat atypical combination.
- 96. Besides my family, you're probably
- 97. the only other Jew
to set foot in this town.
- 98. I'm from a small town in New England.
- 99. I know what it's like
to be the odd Jew out.
- 100. So, what do you do around here?
- 101. Just read books.
- 102. Transcribe music. Swim at the river.
- 103. - Yeah?
- Go out at night.
- 104. - I don't know.
- That sounds fun.
- 105. All right, buddy, thanks for the help.
- 106. Sorry. Sorry about that.
- 107. It's all right.
- 108. All right, later.
- 109. What do you have there?
- 110. That should all be...
- 111. What is this?
- 112. These are the continuation
of these archaeology department...
- 113. These are archaeology?
- 114. Yeah, those are archaeology.
The rest of these should be history.
- 115. Okay.
- 116. - More apricot juice?
- 117. - Here, tesoro.
- Thank you.
- 118. Help yourself, darling.
- 119. Thanks.
- 120. Help yourself to some more.
- 121. The word "apricot"
comes from the Arabic.
- 122. It's like the words "algebra,"
- 123. It derives from an Arabic noun
- 124. combined with the Arabic article "al"
- 125. The origin of our Italian albicocca
- 126. is al-barquq.
- 127. It's amazing that today in Israel
and many Arab countries,
- 128. the fruit's referred to
by a totally different name, mismish.
- 129. I may have to disagree
with you there, Professor.
- 130. I'm gonna talk etymology,
so just bear with me a second.
- 131. You're right in the case
that most Latin words
- 132. do find their origins in Greek words.
- 133. However, in the case of "apricot,"
- 134. it's a little bit more
of a complicated journey.
- 135. How so?
- 136. Well, here, the Greek actually
takes over from the Latin.
- 137. Latin word being
praecoquum or precoquere.
- 138. So it's, "precook" or "pre-ripen,"
as you know.
- 139. To be precocious or premature.
- 140. And the Byzantines, to go on,
then borrowed praecox,
- 141. which became prekokkia,
which then became berikokki,
- 142. which is how the Arabs got al-barquq.
- 143. That's courtesy of Philology 101.
- 144. Flying colors.
- 145. He does this every year.
- 146. It's about drink time. Let's go here.
- 147. - Ciao, Romano.
- Ciao, Oliver.
- 148. - How are you?
- All good.
- 149. Ciao, boys!
- 150. All good?
- 151. All good!
- 152. Let's see. What have we got?
- 153. - Can you start please?
- Of course!
- 154. Good morning, gentlemen.
- 155. How do you know about this place?
- 156. Okay.
- 157. Go, Chiara!
- 158. No, no, no, no, no!
- 159. He's better than the guy
who came last year.
- 160. Remember?
- 161. Get in there!
- 162. Much better!
See how cute he is.
- 163. Elio, water!
- 164. Perfect timing.
- 165. What's the matter? Are you all right?
- 166. - What, pinch a nerve?
- I'm okay.
- 167. Here. Hold this.
- 168. Trust me. I'm about to be a doctor.
- 169. Hey, hey, come here.
See? That's the problem.
- 170. You're too stressed.
- 171. - You just gotta relax a little bit.
- I am relaxing.
- 172. Marzia, come here for a minute.
- 173. Back me up here.
- 174. - Feel that. Right there?
- 175. - It's too tight, right?
- 176. - He needs to relax.
- 177. Later.
- 178. You should relax more.
- 179. Okay, guys, ready?
- 180. Okay, our ball, our ball, our ball.
- 181. Twelve serving 11.
- 182. Mine, mine, mine, mine.
- 183. Go, go, go. Yeah, good.
It's yours, it's yours.
- 184. Sweetheart, Auntie Marcella and
the others are coming over for dinner.
- 185. Is Oliver staying with us or going out?
- 186. Don't know.
- 187. What a movie star!
- 188. Yes, those Americans...
- 189. Sparkling wine!
- 190. He's late.
- 191. Don't you think...
- 192. Don't you think he's impolite
when he says, "Later"?
- 193. Arrogant.
- 194. I don't think he's arrogant.
- 195. Just watch.
- 196. This is how he'll say good-bye
to us when the time comes.
- 197. With his... "Later."
- 198. Meanwhile, we'll have to put up with him
for six long weeks.
- 199. Won't we, darling?
- 200. I think he's shy.
- 201. You'll grow to like him.
- 202. What if I grow to hate him?
- 203. Oh, no, sweetheart.
- 204. - Take his plates away.
- Very well, madam.
- 205. Darling?
- 206. Elio, play something.
- 207. I don't want to.
- 208. Why not?
- 209. Because I don't want to.
- 210. Why don't you go
to Moscazzano with others?
- 211. Because I don't want to.
- 212. You're spoiling everyone's fun.
- 213. Play well, darling.
- 214. - Hey.
- 215. What are you doing?
- 216. Reading.
- 217. How come you're not with everyone else
down by the river?
- 218. - I have an allergy. It's...
- Yeah, me too.
- 219. Maybe we have the same one.
- 220. Why don't you and I go swimming?
- 221. - Right now?
- 222. Come on. Let's go.
- 223. Do we have to go right now?
- 224. - I'll go get changed.
- 225. Meet you downstairs.
- 226. See you downstairs.
- 227. Elio, what are you doing?
- 228. Reading my music.
- 229. No, you're not.
- 230. - Thinking, then.
- 231. About what?
- 232. It's private.
- 233. You're not gonna tell me?
- 234. I'm not gonna tell you.
- 235. He's not gonna tell me
what he's thinking about.
- 236. Elio.
- 237. I guess I'll go hang out with your mom.
- 238. More apricot juice, please.
- 239. That's a good boy.
- 240. Thank God you're helping me.
- 241. Sounds nice.
- 242. Thought you didn't like it.
- 243. Play it again, will you?
- 244. Follow me.
- 245. That sounds different.
Did you change it?
- 246. - Well, I changed it a little bit.
- 247. I just played it the way Liszt
would have played it
- 248. if he'd altered Bach's version.
- 249. Play that again.
- 250. - Play what again?
- The thing you played outside.
- 251. You want me to play
the thing I played outside?
- 252. - Please.
- Of course.
- 253. I can't believe you changed it again.
- 254. - I changed it a little bit.
- Yeah. Why?
- 255. I just played it the way
Busoni would've played it
- 256. if he'd altered Liszt's version.
- 257. And what is wrong with Bach
the way Bach would've played...
- 258. Bach never wrote it for the guitar.
- 259. In fact, we're not even sure
- 260. - Bach wrote it at all.
- Forget I asked.
- 261. It's young Bach.
- 262. He dedicated it to his brother.
- 263. Hey, Professor.
- 264. Hello.
- 265. Here, please.
- 266. I need help.
- 267. Just be honest.
- 268. How bad is it?
- 269. I think your insights here
are persuasive, but...
- 270. Have you been to the river?
- 271. Mafalda!
- 272. Isn't she beautiful?
- 273. Elio.
- 274. You sleeping?
- 275. I was.
- 276. Listen to this drivel.
Tell me what you think.
- 277. - Wait.
- 278. Can't hear you.
- 279. "For the early Greeks,
- 280. "Heidegger contends,
this underlying hiddenness
- 281. "is constitutive of the way beings are,
- 282. "not only in relation to themselves
- 283. "but also in relation
to other entities generally.
- 284. "In other words,
they do not construe hiddenness
- 285. "merely or primarily in terms of
entities' relations to human beings."
- 286. Does that make any sense to you?
- 287. Doesn't make any sense to me.
- 288. I don't think it makes
any sense to your dad, either.
- 289. Maybe it did when you wrote it.
- 290. That might be the kindest thing
anybody has said to me in months.
- 291. "Kind"?
- 292. Yep. Kind.
- 293. - Hey, Elio.
- 294. Hey!
- 295. Come here.
- 296. What's going on?
- 297. Is he trying to get it on with her?
- 298. Elio, he already succeeded?
- 299. What do I know?
- 300. I'd love to be in his shoes.
- 301. Who wouldn't love to be in her shoes?
- 302. She wants him, no matter what!
- 303. Coming?
- 304. I'll come later.
- 305. Are you with me because
you're mad at Chiara?
- 306. Why would I be mad at Chiara?
- 307. Because of him.
- 308. Because of who?
- 309. Of Oliver.
- 310. Turn around.
- 311. Meet me here tomorrow night?
- 312. Wait for me!
- 313. Come on.
- 314. We almost had sex last night...
- 315. Marzia and me.
- 316. Well, why didn't you?
- 317. I don't know.
- 318. Well, you know, it's better
to have tried and failed, right?
- 319. All I had to do was find the courage
to reach out and touch.
- 320. She would have said yes.
- 321. Well, try again later.
- 322. Try what later?
- 323. I just heard
from the people in Sirmione.
- 324. They say they've come up with something.
- 325. Fantastic.
- 326. Going there today.
- 327. - Would you like to come along?
- I would love to. Thank you.
- 328. - Smell this.
- Can I come, too?
- 329. On the condition you remain silent.
- 330. Silent as in,
"He has too many opinions,"
- 331. or silent as in,
"Just not telling anybody
- 332. "what an amazing thing you've dug up"?
- 333. Well, nothing has been dug up.
- 334. It's what has been brought out,
out of the water.
- 335. What are you doing?
- 336. Going to Lake Garda with my dad.
- 337. He wants to show Oliver
where he's dredging.
- 338. Can you tell him I came by?
- 339. He's inside with my dad, helping him.
- 340. You were amazing last night,
on the dance floor.
- 341. - He's a good dancer.
- A good dancer.
- 342. He's good-looking too.
- 343. - Want to get us together?
- 344. Come in.
- 345. Dad always sits up front
with Anchise to navigate.
- 346. She seems to like you a lot.
- 347. She's more beautiful
than she was last year.
- 348. I saw her naked on a night swim once.
- 349. Great body.
- 350. Trying to get me to like her?
- 351. What would be the harm in that?
- 352. No, no harm.
- 353. Just typically like to go at those
things on my own, if you don't mind.
- 354. I'll drive today!
- 355. Just don't play at being the good host.
- 356. Anchise, take the afternoon off.
- 357. What's going on, boys?
- 358. Oliver, come. Sit up front.
Be my navigator.
- 359. What? What?
- 360. - Dr. Roseburg.
- 361. - Benvenuto.
- Look who's here.
- 362. - He's grown a bit, eh?
- And this is Oliver.
- 363. Sammy! Come on!
- 364. Truce?
- 365. Hey, boys.
- 366. The ship went down in 1827
on the way to Isola del Garda
- 367. Gossip has it this statue
was a gift from Count Lechi
- 368. to his lover,
contralto Adelaide Malanotte.
- 369. There are four known sets,
after the Praxiteles originals.
- 370. This fellow's at number three.
- 371. The Emperor Hadrian had a pair,
dug up at Tivoli,
- 372. but one of the more philistine
of the Farnese Popes melted them down
- 373. and had them recast as a
particularly voluptuous Venus.
- 374. Who'd like to go for a swim
before we head back?
- 375. We're all such pros. If I got my own
statue, it would probably be on there.
- 376. Elio!
- 377. Oliver!
- 378. - I have to go. I have to go.
- Hey! Hey!
- 379. I have to go.
- 380. Goodness.
- 381. - Are you going, too?
- No, no.
- 382. I should stay
and do some work on my book.
- 383. Come on. How about a drink
to celebrate the day?
- 384. - Okay, maybe just one.
- All right!
- 385. Marzia?
- 386. The Cosmic Fragments by Heraclitus.
- 387. The meaning of the river flowing
is not that all things are changing
- 388. so that we cannot encounter them twice,
- 389. but that some things
stay the same only by changing.
- 390. Sorry, Elio.
I brought some clean clothes.
- 391. Leave the door open.
- 392. - Thanks.
- You're welcome.
- 393. Darling, have you seen my Heptaméron?
- 394. Mafalda.
- 395. It's in German.
- 396. Okay.
- 397. I can't remember where we left off,
but I think you'll like this one.
- 398. Come here, darling.
- 399. So, I'll translate, huh?
- 400. "A handsome young knight
is madly in love with a princess.
- 401. "And she, too, is in love with him,
- 402. "though she seems not to be
entirely aware of it.
- 403. "Despite the friendship..."
- 404. "... that blossoms between them,
- 405. "or perhaps because of
that very friendship,
- 406. "the young knight finds himself so..."
- 407. "... so humbled and speechless
- 408. "that he's totally unable to bring up
the subject of his love.
- 409. "Till one day, he asks the princess
- 410. "Is it better to speak or to die?"
- 411. I'd never have the courage
to ask a question like that.
- 412. I doubt that.
- 413. Hey, Elly-Belly.
- 414. You do know that
you can always talk to us.
- 415. My mom's been reading
this 16th-century French romance.
- 416. She read some of it to my dad and I
the day the lights went out.
- 417. Yeah, about the knight that doesn't know
whether to speak or die?
- 418. Right.
- 419. So, does he or doesn't he?
- 420. "Better to speak," she said.
- 421. But she's on her guard.
- 422. She senses a trap somewhere.
- 423. So, does he speak?
- 424. No.
- 425. He fudges.
- 426. It figures. He's French.
- 427. I gotta go to town in a little bit
to pick some things up.
- 428. I can go. I'm not doing anything today.
- 429. Then why don't we go together?
- 430. Right now?
- 431. Yeah. Right now.
- 432. That is, of course, unless you have
more important business going on.
- 433. "That is, of course, unless you have
more important business going on."
- 434. Mind if I put this in your bag?
- 435. Yes, please.
- 436. I straightened the wheels
and inflated the tires.
- 437. Perfect. Thanks.
- 438. I fell. I was coming home the other day,
and I scraped myself pretty badly.
- 439. Anchise insisted on applying
some sort of witches' brew.
- 440. I think it helped.
- 441. Hold this for a second, will you?
- 442. - Want one?
- 443. Not bad, huh?
- 444. Not bad at all.
- 445. I thought you didn't smoke.
- 446. I don't.
- 447. - So, World War II, huh?
- No. This is World War I.
- 448. You'd have to be at least 80 years old
to have known any of them.
- 449. I never even heard
of the Battle of Piave.
- 450. Battle of Piave was one of the most
lethal battles of World War I.
- 451. Hundred and seventy thousand
- 452. Is there anything you don't know?
- 453. I know nothing, Oliver.
- 454. Well, you seem to know
more than anybody else around here.
- 455. Well, if you only knew how little
I know about the things that matter.
- 456. What things that matter?
- 457. You know what things.
- 458. Why are you telling me this?
- 459. 'Cause I thought you should know.
- 460. Because you thought I should know?
- 461. 'Cause I wanted you to know?
- 462. Because I wanted you to know.
- 463. Because I wanted you to know.
- 464. 'Cause I wanted you to know.
- 465. Because there's no one else
I can say this to but you.
- 466. Are you saying
what I think you're saying?
- 467. Don't go anywhere. Stay right here.
- 468. You know I'm not going anywhere.
- 469. They mixed up all of my pages.
- 470. I'm gonna have to
retype this whole thing.
- 471. I'm not gonna have anything to work on
- 472. This is gonna set me back a whole day.
- 473. Damn it.
- 474. Shouldn't have said anything.
- 475. Just pretend you never did.
- 476. Does that mean we're on speaking terms
but not really?
- 477. It means we can't talk
about those kinds of things.
- 478. Okay?
- 479. We just can't.
- 480. Hey.
- 481. Let's go, American!
- 482. - Ready?
- Let's go.
- 483. Pretty much.
- 484. Oh, my God.
- 485. - Thirsty?
- 486. Good morning, ma'am.
- 487. Excuse me.
- 488. Could I ask for a glass of water?
- 489. Il Duce.
- 490. "People of Italy!"
- 491. That's Italy.
- 492. - Thank you.
- You're welcome.
- 493. Come on!
- 494. This is my spot. It's all mine.
- 495. Come here to read.
- 496. Can't tell you the number of books
I've read here.
- 497. Oh, my God, it's freezing.
- 498. Spring is in the mountains.
- 499. The Alpi Orobie.
- 500. The water comes
straight down from there.
- 501. I like the way you say things.
- 502. I don't know why you're always
putting yourself down, though.
- 503. So you won't, I guess.
- 504. You really that afraid of what I think?
- 505. You're making things
very difficult for me.
- 506. I love this, Oliver.
- 507. What?
- 508. Everything.
- 509. Us, you mean?
- 510. It's not bad.
- 511. It's not bad.
- 512. Better now?
- 513. No, no, no.
- 514. - We should go.
- 515. I know myself. Okay?
And we've been good.
- 516. We haven't done anything
to be ashamed of,
- 517. and that's a good thing.
- 518. I wanna be good.
- 519. Okay?
- 520. Am I offending you?
- 521. Just don't.
- 522. I think it's starting to get infected.
- 523. We can stop by the pharmacist's
on the way back.
- 524. Excellent idea.
- 525. So we got the government
of Bettino Craxi...
- 526. Because we don't do anything
but talk, talk, talk.
- 527. Let me speak.
- 528. We have five parties
that do nothing but fight.
- 529. Smoke and shut up!
Let them speak, him, her.
- 530. I'd like to know what they think too.
- 531. Annella, what do you think?
A five party government!
- 532. Darling, I think
it's the historic compromise...
- 533. Don't say that. Compromises are tragic.
- 534. You've changed
since you inherited this place.
- 535. What's that got to do with it?
- 536. What are you saying?
- 537. You're mad, darling.
- 538. You asshole!
- 539. - She's right.
- And you don't say anything to her.
- 540. Say something.
- 541. You're resigned.
- 542. Why don't we talk
about the death of Buñuel?
- 543. Buñuel was a genius.
- 544. - Know him?
- Cinema isn't the answer.
- 545. Cinema is a mirror of reality
and it's a filter.
- 546. They broadcast The Phantom of Liberty
with constant interr...
- 547. Everyone loves Buñuel!
- 548. Let's hear his opinion.
- 549. He doesn't know anything about Italy!
- 550. Say something. Give us your impression.
- 551. Do you have an impression?
- 552. Darling, he's American.
- 553. That doesn't mean stupid!
- 554. Just stop.
- 555. I don't give an easy ride
to some politicians.
- 556. She didn't say that.
- 557. I'm going to go mad.
- 558. What's the matter?
- 559. What's wrong?
- 560. It's nothing. It happens all the time.
- 561. - Mafalda, ice?
- It's in the fridge.
- 562. You get used to absolutely everything.
- 563. Don't you realize
you're mixing everything up?
- 564. What are you talking about?
- 565. There's no more politics, nothing.
He's left too.
- 566. Elio?
- 567. Elio.
- 568. You all right?
- 569. Sit for a second.
- 570. If you insist.
- 571. - That wasn't my fault, right?
- 572. I'm a mess.
- 573. Well, the kitchen table sure is.
- 574. Where did you learn to do that?
- 575. My bubbe used to do this for us
when we were sick.
- 576. Trust me, it helps.
- 577. I used to have one of these.
- 578. - You used to?
- 579. How come you never wear it?
- 580. My mother says
we are Jews of discretion.
- 581. Well...
- 582. I guess that works for your mother.
- 583. Funny witch.
- 584. Fuck, you'll kill me if you do that.
- 585. I hope not.
- 586. Hey, are you leaving?
- 587. - Where's Elio?
- He's inside.
- 588. He had a bit of a nosebleed
during lunch, and he's just resting.
- 589. - Really?
- 590. - Okay. Bye.
- I'll be back in a minute.
- 591. Don't go anywhere.
- 592. You okay?
- 593. Are we going out?
- 594. I don't know if I can go out.
If my mom sees, she'll worry.
- 595. - She will?
- Yeah, she's a pain.
- 596. Where's Oliver?
- 597. Don't ask me.
- 598. Where's Oliver?
- 599. - Didn't he go out?
- Would you like a smoothie?
- 600. No, thank you. We're having dinner soon.
- 601. All right.
- 602. I'm going out tonight.
- 603. - Don't make me worry.
- What are you talking about?
- 604. This is no good, madam.
- 605. - Let him do his own thing.
- 606. Why's she hassling me? I'm 17.
- 607. She's worried about you.
- 608. You like him, don't you? Oliver?
- 609. Everyone likes Oliver.
- 610. I think he likes you too.
- 611. More than you do.
- 612. Is that your impression?
- 613. - No, he told me.
- When did he say that?
- 614. A while ago.
- 615. Mafalda, do you know where Oliver is?
- 616. I have no idea.
- 617. Traitor.
- 618. Traitor.
- 619. This is Craxi.
I draw the center of Craxi...
- 620. - Hey.
- 621. It's me. Is that Marzia?
- 622. Sure it is! Can't you tell?
- 623. Sorry.
- 624. Is that for me?
- 625. Thanks.
- 626. Do you really read a lot?
- 627. I love reading too,
but I don't tell anyone.
- 628. Why not?
- 629. I don't know.
- 630. I think...
- 631. people who read are...
- 632. kind of secretive.
- 633. They hide who they really are.
- 634. Do you hide who you really are?
- 635. No, not with you.
- 636. Not with me?
- 637. Well, maybe a bit.
- 638. What do you mean?
- 639. You know exactly what I mean.
- 640. Why do you say that?
- 641. Why?
- 642. Because...
- 643. I think...
- 644. you're going to hurt me,
- 645. and I don't want to be hurt.
- 646. You're so hard.
- 647. Wait.
- 648. Kiss me.
- 649. - Is that good?
- 650. Are you lying?
- 651. - Oh, fuck, I'm sorry.
- It's all right.
- 652. Are you mad at me? Are you angry?
- 653. What's so funny? Why are you laughing?
- 654. Leave me alone.
- 655. Fuck, that felt good.
- 656. Please don't avoid me.
- 657. It kills me.
Can't stand thinking you hate me.
- 658. Your silence is killing me.
I'd sooner die than know you hate me.
- 659. I am such a pussy.
- 660. Way over the top.
- 661. Can't stand the silence.
- 662. Need to speak to you.
- 663. Did someone have a good night
- 664. Not really.
- 665. Well, you must be tired, then.
- 666. Or were you playing poker, too?
- 667. I don't play poker.
- 668. Several hundred color slides
of our boxer and the others like him
- 669. arrived yesterday from Berlin.
- 670. We should start cataloging them.
- 671. That'll keep us busy till lunch,
- 672. Sure.
- 673. Beautiful, aren't they?
- 674. They're all so incredibly sensual.
- 675. Because these are more Hellenistic
than 5th century Athenian.
- 676. Most likely sculpted
under the influence of Praxiteles.
- 677. Right.
- 678. Greatest sculptor in antiquity.
- 679. Grow up. I'll see you at midnight.
- 680. Grow up. I'll see you at midnight.
- 681. Muscles are firm.
Look at his stomach, for example.
- 682. Not a straight body in these statues.
They're all curved.
- 683. Sometimes impossibly curved.
And so nonchalant.
- 684. Hence their ageless ambiguity.
- 685. As if they're daring you to desire them.
- 686. Don't forget, Isaac and Mounir
are coming for dinner.
- 687. - Also known as Sonny and Cher.
- 688. I'd like you to wear that shirt
they gave you for your birthday.
- 689. No.
- 690. - Darling, they got it for you in Miami.
- I'm sorry. It's too big. It's too big.
- 691. - Come on. It will make them so happy.
- It looks ridiculous on me.
- 692. I'll try it on for Oliver.
- 693. If Oliver thinks
I look like a scarecrow in it,
- 694. I'm not wearing it.
- 695. Oliver?
- 696. Hey, what time you got?
- 697. It's 2:00.
- 698. - Well... Later.
- 699. Mafalda.
- 700. I won't be here for dinner.
- 701. Okay, Mr. Oliver.
- 702. Hello, Mafalda.
- 703. Marzia.
- 704. Where are we going?
- 705. You'll see.
- 706. Stop it!
- 707. - How are you, buddy?
- 708. - It's been ages.
- It has, yes.
- 709. - How are you?
- You've grown.
- 710. - How are you.
- I'm good.
- 711. Good to see you.
- 712. Remember Marzia from last year.
- 713. Hello.
- 714. - Marzia, remember Isaac?
- The girl from Paris?
- 715. Good to meet you.
- 716. Want to eat with us tonight?
- 717. No, no. I have to go.
- 718. - You're sure?
- 719. - Okay.
- Have a nice evening.
- 720. Goodbye.
- 721. This right here is the brand-new china
that you guys so kindly sent to us.
- 722. It looks wonderful.
Come here, Mounir, Mounir.
- 723. - Come, come, come.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah.
- 724. I can't put it on now.
They've already met me.
- 725. - Yes, you can.
- It'll look like a put-up job.
- 726. - Papa, it'll...
- 727. - Papa, it'll look like a put-up job.
- No misbehaving tonight.
- 728. No... No laughing.
When I tell you to play, you'll play.
- 729. You're too old not to accept
people for who they are.
- 730. What's wrong with them?
What's wrong with them?
- 731. You call them Sonny and Cher
behind their backs.
- 732. - That's what Mom calls them...
- Then you accept gifts from them.
- 733. The only person that reflects badly on
- 734. Is it because they're gay
or because they're ridiculous?
- 735. If you know as much about economics
at Mounir's age,
- 736. you'll be a very wise man, indeed.
- 737. And a credit to me.
- 738. Now, just get into this, you.
- 739. These are unbelievable. I just...
- 740. Hey, look who's here.
- 741. Sorry. I have to go to bed.
I'm sorry. I'm so tired.
- 742. Thank you.
- 743. Elio. Elio.
- 744. - Thank you.
- Good night.
- 745. Good night.
- 746. Do I know you?
- 747. Thank you again for everything.
- 748. - They're never gonna make it.
- No, no. They're fine.
- 749. I'm glad you came.
- 750. Yeah, I'm nervous.
- 751. I like what you've done with the place.
- 752. It's nice.
- 753. You okay?
- 754. Me okay.
- 755. - Can I kiss you?
- Yes, please.
- 756. What are you doing?
- 757. Nothing.
- 758. Does this make you happy?
- 759. You're not gonna get
a nosebleed on me, are you?
- 760. I'm not gonna get...
- 761. Off, off, off, off, off.
- 762. Yeah. Just pull it.
- 763. Or I'll pull it.
- 764. Oliver.
- 765. Call me by your name,
and I'll call you by mine.
- 766. Elio.
- 767. Oliver.
- 768. Elio.
- 769. - Oliver.
- 770. Did we make noise?
- 771. Nothing to worry about.
- 772. I don't know.
Mafalda always looks for signs.
- 773. Well, she's not gonna find any.
- 774. You wore that shirt
the first day you were here.
- 775. Will you give it to me when you go?
- 776. Let's go swimming.
- 777. Are you gonna hold
what happened last night against me?
- 778. No.
- 779. Elio. Come here.
- 780. Take your trunks off.
- 781. Well, that's promising.
- 782. You're hard again.
- 783. Good.
- 784. Professor, I got your note.
Thank you for reminding me.
- 785. I'm gonna go into town and pick
up those typed pages today,
- 786. so maybe this afternoon
would be a good time to...
- 787. Later.
- 788. We'll look them over later,
before you leave.
- 789. Okay. So later.
- 790. Later.
- 791. Oliver.
- 792. You're not sick of me yet?
- 793. No, I just...
I just wanted to be with you.
- 794. I'll... I'm gonna... I'll go.
- 795. Do you know how happy I am
that we slept together?
- 796. I don't know.
- 797. Of course, you don't know.
- 798. I don't want you to regret anything.
- 799. And I hate the thought that maybe
I may have messed you up or...
- 800. I don't want either of us
to pay for this,
- 801. - one way or another.
- No, I...
- 802. It's not like
I'm gonna tell anyone.
- 803. You're not gonna be, like,
getting in trouble.
- 804. That's not what I'm talking about.
- 805. Are you happy I came here?
- 806. I would kiss you if I could.
- 807. Times change.
- 808. Thank God we had the partisans.
- 809. I know, but times have changed.
- 810. What do you think of Bettino?
- 811. - I don't like him.
- I like him.
- 812. I'm happy, actually.
- 813. I don't know. We'll see.
- 814. Anyway, they make the rules.
- 815. Pasquina!
- 816. Hello.
- 817. Hello, ma'am.
- 818. - Tortelli cremaschi.
- 819. Oh, fuck.
- 820. Fuck.
- 821. Fuck.
- 822. What did you do?
- 823. - Nothing.
- 824. Oh, I see.
- 825. You've moved on
to the plant kingdom already.
- 826. What's next? Minerals?
- 827. I suppose you've already
given up animals.
- 828. You know that's me.
- 829. I'm sick, aren't I?
- 830. I wish everybody was as sick as you.
- 831. Please don't do that.
- 832. - You want to see something sick?
- Please don't do that.
- 833. You want to see something sick?
- 834. Please don't do this.
- 835. Hey. Please don't do it.
- 836. Why are you doing this to me?
- 837. - What are you doing?
- 838. - You're fucking hurting me.
- Then don't fight.
- 839. Sorry.
- 840. It's okay.
- 841. It's okay.
- 842. It's okay.
- 843. I don't want you to go.
- 844. God, we wasted so many days.
- 845. Why didn't you give me a sign?
- 846. - I did. I did.
- You didn't give me a sign.
- 847. When?
- 848. You remember
when we were playing volleyball
- 849. and I touched you?
- 850. Just to show you that I liked you?
- 851. And the way you reacted
made me feel like I'd molested you.
- 852. - I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
- No, it's fine.
- 853. I just decided
I should keep my distance.
- 854. I don't know.
- 855. I come out here for hours
almost every night.
- 856. I didn't know that.
- 857. That's funny, I...
- 858. I thought that...
- 859. Yeah, I know what you thought.
- 860. Stop. Stop.
- 861. "For Oliver.
- 862. "From Elio."
- 863. Elio?
- 864. You disappeared for three days.
- 865. I had to work.
- 866. You completely disappeared.
- 867. Yeah, I don't know. I just...
- 868. I had a lot to do.
- 869. Am I your girl?
- 870. Oliver has to go to Bergamo
for a few days.
- 871. Oh?
- 872. Research at the university.
- 873. Then he'll fly home from Linate.
- 874. But what about Elio?
- 875. Maybe it could be nice
for the two of them
- 876. to get away for a couple of days, no?
- 877. What do you think?
- 878. You know you've been
our favorite student?
- 879. - You must come back.
- You sure you're not just saying that?
- 880. - Oliver.
- Thank you very much, Professor.
- 881. Oh, man.
- 882. Please, please come back soon.
- 883. Come back? I'm just going home to pack.
I'm moving here.
- 884. You're welcome.
- 885. Oh, well...
- 886. - Thank you guys so much.
- Of course.
- 887. Oliver, Oliver.
- 888. - Come back.
- It's been...
- 889. Come here, come here.
- 890. It's been amazing. Thank you guys.
- 891. Well, later, Perlmans.
- 892. Later. Later, later, later.
- 893. Tell Elio to call when you get there.
- 894. Oh, no.
- 895. Come for dinner tonight.
- 896. Bring Marzia.
- 897. Bye, darling.
- 898. - What?
- 899. - What?
- 900. Oh, to see without my eyes
- 901. The first time that you kissed me
- 902. Boundless by the time I cried
- 903. I built your walls around me
- 904. Yes!
- 905. White noise
What an awful sound
- 906. Oliver!
- 907. Elio!
- 908. Elio!
- 909. Hand of God, deliver me
- 910. Oh, woe is me
- 911. The first time that you touched me
- 912. - Oliver!
- 913. Oh, will wonders never cease?
- 914. Blessed be the mystery of love
- 915. Lord, I no longer believe
- 916. Yes!
- 917. Drowned in living waters
- 918. Cursed by the love that I received
- 919. From my brother's daughter
- 920. Like Hephaestion who died
- 921. Alexander's lover
- 922. Now I'm prone to misery
- 923. The birthmark on your...
- 924. Oh, God.
- 925. And I'm feeling low
- 926. Understand I'm feeling low
- 927. You hear that?
- 928. Wait, wait, wait.
- 929. No, no, no, it's this way.
- 930. Come on. Come on. You're missing it.
- 931. Come on.
- 932. Don't stop.
- 933. A kiss is not enough...
- 934. This. This.
- 935. This. You.
- 936. You are...
- 937. Love my way
- 938. It's a new road
- 939. I follow...
- 940. If you'll excuse me...
- 941. Just one second.
- 942. One second!
- 943. They'd dearly make us pay
- 944. For laughing in their faces
- 945. And making it our way
- 946. There's emptiness behind their eyes
- 947. There's dust in all their hearts
- 948. I saw them last year.
- 949. Richard Butler... fantastic!
- 950. Really? We saw them in concert too.
- 951. We hitchhiked to London.
- 952. What'd she say?
- 953. It's a new road
- 954. I follow
- 955. Where my mind goes
- 956. Excuse me, excuse me, excuse me.
- 957. Did you get your passport?
- 958. You get your passport?
- 959. Mafalda?
- 960. Mom?
- 961. Yeah, it's me.
- 962. Yeah, everything is fine.
I'm at the station...
- 963. in Clusone.
- 964. Listen, Mom, can you...
- 965. Can you come get me, Mom?
- 966. How are you?
- 967. Good.
- 968. I read the book you bought me.
- 969. The poems...
- 970. They're really beautiful.
- 971. I love that... Antonia Pozzi.
- 972. I'm sorry, excuse me...
- 973. that you're sad.
- 974. I'm saying that because
I wanted to tell you
- 975. I'm not mad at you.
- 976. Not at all.
- 977. I love you, Elio.
- 978. Stay friends?
- 979. For life?
- 980. For life?
- 981. Missed you at dinner.
- 982. So...
- 983. Welcome home.
- 984. Thanks.
- 985. - Oliver enjoyed the trip?
- 986. I think he did.
- 987. You two had a nice friendship.
- 988. Yeah.
- 989. You're too smart not to know how rare,
- 990. how special what you two had was.
- 991. Oliver was Oliver.
- 992. Because it was him.
- 993. Because it was me.
- 994. Oliver may be very intelligent but...
- 995. He was more than intelligent.
- 996. What you two had,
- 997. had everything and nothing
to do with intelligence.
- 998. He was good.
- 999. You're both lucky
to have found each other
- 1000. because you, too, are good...
- 1001. I think he was better than...
- 1002. I think he was better than me.
- 1003. I'm sure he'd say
the same thing about you.
- 1004. Yeah. He'd say the same thing.
- 1005. It flatters you both.
- 1006. And when you least expect it,
- 1007. nature has cunning ways
of finding our weakest spot.
- 1008. Just remember, I am here.
- 1009. Right now,
you may not wanna feel anything,
- 1010. maybe you never wanted to feel anything.
- 1011. And maybe it's not to me
you'd want to speak about this things
- 1012. but feel something you obviously did.
- 1013. Look, you had a beautiful friendship.
- 1014. Maybe more than a friendship.
- 1015. And I envy you.
- 1016. In my place, most parents would hope
the whole thing goes away.
- 1017. Pray their sons land on their feet,
- 1018. but I am not such a parent.
- 1019. We rip out so much of ourselves
to be cured of things faster,
- 1020. that we go bankrupt by the age of 30.
- 1021. And have less to offer,
each time we start with someone new.
- 1022. But to make yourself feel nothing
- 1023. so as not to feel anything.
- 1024. What a waste.
- 1025. Have I spoken out of turn?
- 1026. And I'll say one more thing,
- 1027. it'll clear the air.
- 1028. I may have come close
- 1029. but I never had what you two have.
- 1030. Something always held me back
- 1031. or stood in the way.
- 1032. How you live your life is your business.
- 1033. Just remember,
- 1034. our hearts and our bodies
are given to us only once,
- 1035. and before you know it,
your heart's worn out.
- 1036. And as for your body,
- 1037. there comes a point
when no one looks at it
- 1038. much less wants to come near it.
- 1039. Right now, there's sorrow, pain.
- 1040. Don't kill it,
- 1041. and with it, the joy you felt.
- 1042. Does Mom know?
- 1043. I don't think she does.
- 1044. - Have you been to the Gaverine?
- 1045. Latkes.
- 1046. - May I?
- Happy Hanukkah!
- 1047. To you too.
- 1048. She looks a bit weak.
- 1049. She comes highly recommended by...
- 1050. Her special area of study is...
- 1051. I'll get it.

- 1084. I figured.
- 1085. How?
- 1086. Well, from the way your dad spoke to me.
- 1087. He made me feel
like I was a part of the family.
- 1088. Almost like a son-in-law.
- 1089. You're so lucky.
- 1090. My father would have carted me off
to a correctional facility.
- 1091. Elio.
