Here We See Elio Fighting Every Urge On His Body Not To Cry Over Oliver

Here we see Elio fighting every urge on his body not to cry over Oliver. On the book, Elio talks about "rehearsing the loss to soften its blow". Later, he says: "Antecipating sorrow to neutralize sorrow - that's paltry, cowardly stuff, I told myself. (...) Trying to immunize yourself, that's what you're doing - you'll end up killing the whole thing this way." In this scene, he doesn't want to be alone yet. So he calls his mom (when his voice cracks on the phone 💔💔💔), because he can't deal with it alone just yet. When he's in the car with Annella, he still tries to hide his emotions from her. He was trying not to feel. To "kill the pain". But that was just worse...

"He came. He left. Nothing else had changed. I had not changed. The world hadn't changed. Yet nothing would be the same. All that remains is dreammaking and strange remembrance."
