This video is for all the fanboys of the hit film “Call Me By Your Name”, except this movie goes where the movie did not through a scene that more closely reflects the book – and our fantasies. Elio and Oliver are played by Tom Bentley and Adam Ramzi respectively.
If you’re unfamiliar with the book version of the Peach scene, here’s an excerpt:
“I watched him put the peach in his mouth and slowly begin to eat it, staring at me so intensely that I thought even lovemaking didn’t go so far… I could tell he was tasting it at that very instant. Something that was mine was in his mouth, more his than mine now. I don’t know what happened to me at that moment as I kept staring at him, but suddenly, I had a fierce urge to cry. And rather than fight it, as with orgasm, I simply let myself go, if only to show him something equally private about me as well.”
“I had never been able to admit to myself how happy Oliver had made me the day he’d swallowed my peach. Of course, it had moved me, but it had flattered me as well, as though his gesture had said, I believe with every cell in my body that every cell in yours must not, must never, die, and if it does have to die, let it die inside my body.”
Get yourself a man who will eat the whole peach. Amen.
