Music artist Sufjan Stevens has shared the music video for “Mystery of Love,” his track written for the critically acclaimed and award-winning love story, Call Me By Your Name.
The video features clips from the film, as well as footage taken at the Museo Archeologico Nazionale of Naples.
Stevens contributed three tracks to the Luca Guadagnino-directed movie: “Mystery of Love,” “Visions of Gideon,” and a Doveman remix of the Age of Adz track “Futile Devices.” Both “Mystery of Love” and “Visions of Gideon” made the shortlist for the 2018 Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Call Me By Your Name, the new film by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman.
It’s the summer of 1983 in the north of Italy, and Elio Perlman (Timothée Chalamet), a precocious 17- year-old young man, spends his days in his family’s 17th century villa transcribing and playing classical music, reading, and flirting with his friend Marzia (Esther Garrel).
Elio enjoys a close relationship with his father (Michael Stuhlbarg), an eminent professor specializing in Greco-Roman culture, and his mother Annella (Amira Casar), a translator, who favor him with the fruits of high culture in a setting that overflows with natural delights. While Elio’s sophistication and intellectual gifts suggest he is already a fully-fledged adult, there is much that yet remains innocent and unformed about him, particularly about matters of the heart.
One day, Oliver (Armie Hammer), a 24 year-old American college graduate student working on his doctorate, arrives as the annual summer intern tasked with helping Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
Call Me By Your Name is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
