Characters of Call Me By Your Name 2
In an interview, Luca stated a few things about the characters for the second movie, “I said for instance that Elio will definitely be a cinephile.” He added in another interview about Elio and Anella, “A great musician and cinephile. I think that Annella will be bewildered by the fall of the USSR.”
In the North Italy setting, the director plans to show his stars in beautiful surroundings. He mentioned, “I think [her] son will be somehow nostalgic of the America he left behind. I also think Oliver will grow up with a beautiful family with his fantastic wife who probably will know about the type of love that Oliver feels for Elio.”
