Later. MARZIA and ELIO are in the abbeveratoio. She slips her

hand inside his bathing suit and takes hold of him like she

did in the street the night before.

MARZIA (IN FRENCH)

Tu ne bandes pas.

(You aren’t hard.)

ELIO (IN FRENCH)

Ne fais pas ça ici.

(Don’t do that here.)

MARZIA (IN FRENCH)

Montons dans ta chambre.

(Let’s go up to your room.)

ELIO (IN FRENCH)

J'ai une meilleure idée.

(I have a better idea.)

92 INT. KITCHEN -PERLMAN VILLA -AFTERNOON 92

ELIO and MARZIA, in their swimsuits, run through the kitchen.

Elio holds her hand, almost dragging her. They haven't dried

up, and are wetting the floor as they go.

93 INT. STAIRCASE/CORRIDOR (1ST FLOOR) -PERLMAN VILLA -93

AFTERNOON:

ELIO and MARZIA go up the stairs that take to the upper floor

of the building.

MARZIA:

(riant)

On va où???

(laughing)

(Where are we going???)

They enter a small door on the left end of the corridor.

94 INT. SMALL SPIRAL STAIRCASE -PERLMAN VILLA -DAY 94

A small and narrow spiral staircase. ELIO jogs up the steps

with MARZIA.

95 INT. ATTIC -PERLMAN VILLA -AFTERNOON 95

ELIO and MARZIA enter the attic, it is filled with old

furniture, books, and other unused stuff.

65.

Elio moves a mattress that was leaning on the wall and lays

it on the ground. They pull off their bathing suits and lie

on the mattress, ELIO on top. He takes off his watch, places

it on a bed-side table, where he can see it. It is 4:29.

The windows are open, but the shutters are half closed. The

subdued afternoon light draws slatted patterns on the bed, on

the wall, on MARZIA and ELIO making love.

96 EXT. PERLMAN VILLA -LATE AFTERNOON 96

MARZIA leaves just before dinner time. ELIO comes down with

her as the evening guests pull up in their car: a GAY COUPLE

one tall and thin, the other short and rotund. Both are

professors on holiday, and both are wearing purple shirts.

Each carries a bouquet of white flowers which they present to

ANNELLA. ELIO introduces them to MARZIA. They speak terrible

Italian, one starting a sentence loaded with compliments, the

other having to finish it. ELIO leads them into the house as

MARZIA bikes off.
