Audience Reviews for Love of Siam (Rak haeng Siam)

I watched this movie without subtitle, and it's very disturbing of course since I don't know the language... But the cast played naturally, so even I don't know what they're saying but I can guess what they're talking about... This is Thailand version of Eternal Summer, but more younger with a little weaker story... But pretty interesting to be watched... The song was pretty good too... Need to watch again...

Tong wrapped his arm around Mew. He gently caressed his hair. They looked at each other's eyes and they kissed. That was the most precious moment of the film- an act that affirms how beautiful and painful love can be.

I never thought that a "gay love" can be so pure and innocent. Every moment was captivating and heartbreaking. The story was not some sort of a masterpiece and the film itself isn't. I was surprised that this was Thailand's Oscar entry. However, the actors were really good and they acted very naturally. Every tear, every smile, every feeling seemed so real.

I loved how everything happened. I find the whole thing very realistic. Yes, it involved two young souls but it managed not to make things lighter than they're supposed to be. By the way, I'd like to point out the song Mew wrote. It was really beautiful. It's one of the best things about the film.

You see, this is not that good to be regarded as a masterpiece. However, this is very beautiful and poignant. The emotions are overwhelming. It is the kind that slowly penetrates your soul.
