1 INT. ELIO’S/OLIVER’S ROOM -PERLMAN VILLA -DAY 1

The sound of an approaching car. ELIO, 17, barefoot and in

his bathing suit, is in the process of moving his clothes

from his room to the adjacent room -a wardrobe somehow

refurbished into a single bedroom. The two rooms are

separated by a ruined wooden door, with cracks all over it.

MARZIA, a girl of about his same age, is lying on the bed. It

is obvious both have been on it together.

ELIO goes to the window and looks down. A car pulls up below,

blowing up clouds of dust, and stops at the villa’s main

entrance. A young man steps out of the car, wearing a billowy

bright blue shirt with a wide-open collar, sunglasses. Thisis OLIVER, 25. He is followed by the handy-man and gardener

of the house ANCHISE.

ELIO:

(in French)

L'usurpateur.

(The usurper)

MARZIA jumps up to come stand next to him, looking down.

ANCHISE appears below followed by the PERLMANS who introducethemselves to Oliver. Professor PERLMAN is in his fifties,

distinguished, vigorous. ANNELLA, his wife, is in her mid-

forties.

ANNELLA:

(in Italian)

Dove è Elio?

(Where’s Elio?)

ELIO:

(in French)

Il faut que je descende.

(I’d better go down.)

2 INT. STAIRCASE -PERLMAN VILLA -DAY 2

At the end of the stairs ELIO sees OLIVER being walked toProfessor Perlman’s study. Oliver’s suitcase and backpack lie

on the floor nearby. ANNELLA sees Elio approaching and

gestures towards them.

ANNELLA:

(in Italian)

Aiuta Oliver a portarele sue cose in camera tua.

(Help bring Oliver’s things up to

your room.)

3 INT. PROFESSOR PERLMAN’S STUDY -PERLMAN VILLA -DAY 3

ELIO enters his father’s studio. OLIVER, sitting on the sofa,

is having a glass of fresh water. Even if exhausted by the

heat, he remains elegant and somewhat iconic. Professor

PERLMAN introduces the two formally. They shake hands.

ELIO:

I’m Elio.

OLIVER:

(non committal)

Hi.

4 INT. STAIRCASE -PERLMAN VILLA -DAY 4

They head up the stairs together; ELIO lunges for the heavy

suitcase, OLIVER takes the backpack.

ELIO:

My room is now your room. I’ll be

next door.

They meet MARZIA coming down. More introductions in the

middle of the stairs. OLIVER is curious about her and looks

back as he continues up. She looks back after he does.

5 INT. OLIVER’S ROOM -PERLMAN VILLA -DAY 5

They enter Oliver’s bedroom. OLIVER drops his backpack andcrashes on the bed, exhausted. ELIO lays the suitcase next to

the bed.

ELIO:

We're sharing the bathroom. It's my

only way out...

But Oliver is not listening, already asleep. Elio walks out

and closes the door that separates their two rooms.

6 EXT. GARDEN -PERLMAN VILLA -DAY 6

In front of the kitchen is a fruit orchard with a variety of

fruit trees. From outside we see inside MAFALDA at work in

charge of the domestic duties of the place, and she is

virtually a member of the family.

One of the trees is shaking. In the dappled light under the

tree we see ANCHISE reaching up into the limbs to pick the

ripest peaches. They seem to glow within their foliage as his

long, gnarled fingers seek them out. He carefully places the

fruit he has picked in a basket.

7 INT. STAIRCASE -PERLMAN VILLA -DUSK 7

Later. MAFALDA, at the bottom of the stairs, rings a bell.

She looks up the stairs and, getting no response, rings the

bell again.

8 INT. ELIO’S/OLIVER’S ROOM/BATHROOM -PERLMAN VILLA -DUSK 8

ELIO is at the desk in his small “new” bedroom; he is

transcribing music. Next to his desk lamp a walkman is

playing music. He hears the bell.

He enters the bathroom and the door that connects it to the

other room is open. OLIVER sleeps in the dim light of sunset.
