Out of all the movies I've seen, and I've seen A LOT, the movies that take place in Italy always affect me the most. There is something so captivating about the romantic/kinda morbid vibe that Italy sets me (us?) into and it always makes me wanna re-live everything that happened in the movie. It makes me wanna pack my bags, fly to a small Italian village, wear cute summer dresses, write and experience that Italian romance first hand.

Some would say I have too much free time on my hands, but I would say I just make time for things that make me happy. Watching movies is definitely one of those things. I normally watch a movie a day, two for sure on a Sunday if not more, but around award season, I go crazy. And award season is here!! Already seen so many good ones, so many still to watch, but there is one I know I will watch many many times again, the one of which characters and their story will follow me forever, and that masterpiece is a movie called Call me by your name.

It's been a while since such beautiful story has been told, and in the purest way possible. I've missed that so much! It was all about love, nothing else. Movies now days are all filled up with the main story that is followed up with another story, always an accident or a disease, you know, always something. But as in life, sometimes love is enough. Romantic love, family love. Oh and the parents in the movie were portrayed as never before. The fathers monologue at the end will give you so much, and his words will for sure change point of view of so many.

When it comes to movies that are nominated for bigger awards, I almost never watch trailers, so with this one, I had no idea where it was going, but boy what a ride! The movie is so so beautiful, amazing performances, perfectly shot and even the fashion was right on point. Really, really one of the best movies I've ever seen. AND (!!) I heard some news about sequel!! The movie is based on a book, and in the book Oliver and Elio meet again, so Luca, the director, is thinking about turning that part of the story in a movie too. So, correct me if I'm wrong, but that's an amazing idea! I'm already excited about it, and it's not even a sure thing! Anyways, GO SEE IT!! Thank me later.

If you will like this movie, than might I suggest you also watch Stealing beauty and The bigger splash. The latter is a bit more of a thriller, but Italian vibe and romance are very much there, trust me.

Breathe and Lady bird are movies in a completely different genre, but great movies as well, so put that on your "must watch list" too! Lady bird already got 2 Golden globes and has been nominated a bunch of times! I predict big Oscar nominations are coming for this one, and Call me by your name is definitely gonna be on that list too!

Going to finish my day with Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri. Heard so much about this one!
