Love of Siam

I can't be with you as your boyfriend. But it doesn't mean that i don't love you. From the Movie "Love of Siam" (Tong and Mew)


" without YOU in my LIFE, there wouldn't be such song."
Mew
-Love of Siam


"I want you to know that a love song can't be written if you're not in love. But because of you, I can write this song so easily." - Mew

"Even if we made mistakes along the way, it's better than never having tried to love and be loved." - June

"Life always gives us the opportunity to start over after we learn from our mistakes." - June

Mew: If we can love someone so much how will we be able to handle it the day we are separated? And, if being separated is part of life, and you know about separation well. Is it possible Tong, that we can love someone and never be afraid of losing them? At the same time, I was also wondering. Is it possible that, we can live our entire life without loving anyone at all? That’s my loneliness.


Mew, Love of Siam:
"If we can love someone so much, how will we be able to handle it one day when we are separated? And if being separated is a part of life, and you know about separation well, is it possible that we can love someone and never be afraid of losing them? [Or,] is it possible that we can live our entire life without loving at all?"

Ying: "It means, 'As long as you love, you will still have hope.'
Mew: "So, Ying, are you still hoping?"
Ying: "And should I still hope?"

Tong, Love of Siam:
"What if I choose one and you don't like it again?"
"I can't be your boyfriend, but that doesn't mean I don't love you."

Letter from Tang/June, Love of Siam:
"I have been thinking. How will you make it from now on? But I believe so much that you can make it without me, because you have so much love for one another. Even though, sometimes, it seems to be too much that we end up hurting each other. But I believe as time goes by, we should agree that there is no such thing as 'too much love. Even if we made mistakes along the way, it's better than never having tried to love and be loved. Wouldn't you agree? Life always gives us opportunities to start over after we learn from our mistakes. I hope you take these opportunities and take good care of one another. Thank you for everything. I hope there's a chance that we will see each other again."


Random quotes from Youtube commenters in regards to the movie:

"the movie is too deep that not everyone can get. very interesting yet needs a better understanding. Tang`s disappearance, Korn`s depression, Ying`s acceptance, Donut`s desire for Tong`s attention, Sunee`s unbareable pains-acceptance-understanding , June`s perseverance, Tong`s identity crisis and decision making, Mew`s loneliness and cravings for love, Tong`s family`s lost faith.
like us, every characters in this movie is looking for real happiness. it depends on what path we will take and decision that we will make."

"Love doesn't see, it just feels"
- ultrabite2000

"it's very hard go on loving a person who could never be yours"
- kimchupa

"We are who we are because the chains of unexplained consequence play their roles. So do you best at now and hope for better outcome in future."
- devilmirror

"I would totally agree. You have to accepted who u are first more of anything. Knowing what and who you are is the most important, because once you fine yourself everything will work its course."
- judasum

"the one thing everyone in the world should always have in mind is that no matter what happens, the one you love is the one you love and it's only between you and your partner or whoever... not anybody else. Sunee is Tong's mom, but at the end of the day, she's not the one who's in love. so keep everything between yous only. if the parents get involve, let them, but don't let it affect the relationship... ;) "
- pedroander

"I believe so. it is just so freakin bad that gays are undermined because of what other gays do. i mean the gays, who'd want to change their genders and even pay just to HAVE SEX, were thought to be the same with other gays who have just fallen in love with another guy because of emotional attachment. but still, even if it is believed that gays are HOMOsexual, i stand for the truth that the most vulnerable part of a human being is his emotion. and so, gays can also love women"

Love of Siam is thailand's first gay movie. It is an excellent movie. Although there is no happy ending, it is a very touching movie to watch. Love Mario Maurer's acting in the movie. Watch Love of Siam Full Movie Eng Sub here.

The point of the movie attempts to make us realize that love is an evolved form of Emotional attachment that transcends sexual attraction of the physical form. You'll see in the movie how the comforts taken advantage the emotional bond. Thus the Movie isn't only about gay relationship. It's about How you Handle Separation and cope up with loneliness. This movie teaches us how to accept things we know that couldn't stay, things that can't possible happen and accept things that has long been gone. it all leads to making us realize that we all should move-on from these situation, do not dwell on the past and move forward.
that is the reason why the movie didn't only focus on Mew and Tong. Let's start with Mew's character.

Mew - who happened to realize he's gay and stirs up old feelings with Tong when he met him again which was not approved by Tong's mother. And Mew was able to cope up in this separation with Tong eventually and Mew's friends made amends with him, asked him to join again the band and learned how to accept the fact that he's gay.

Tong - on the other hand, has been devastated from the lost of his sister and was comforted by Mew. The feeling outgrew when Mew became the channel for Tong to meet June, the asst mngr who coincidentally looks identical to Tong's missing sister. Tong has been the inspiration of Mew's songs. And since he developed Love to Mew, he needed to end his relationship with Donut, his girlfriend. Tong and Mew remained to just be friends and accepted the fact they couldn't stay together.

Ying - She had a crush on Mew but her love is unrequited. She played a really good role in representing all of us who once in our lives shown one sided love to someone (admit it). Back when she didn't know Mew is gay, she did everything to get Mew's attention, from flowers, music, etc etc. After all, like Ying, we have to accept the fact some things can't happen the way we want it to be. It's one sided. we have to understand the other's side and feelings as well. (her part was my favorite, I can relate to her)

Sunee and Korn - Tong's parent who lost their daughter. Sunee, the most depressed character in the story, who for a long time cared her alcoholic husband, Korn. She's the one who carried so much problem but did everything to make the family whole. Eventually realized that some people can stay in our hearts but not in our lives. (Good thing, June came to made them realize that).

June - Without her they wouldn't realize they should move on, let me quote her letter "Even though, sometimes, it seems to be too much that we end up hurting each other. But I believe as time goes by, we should agree that there is no such thing as 'too much love. Even if we made mistakes along the way, it's better than never having tried to love and be loved. Wouldn't you agree? Life always gives us opportunities to start over after we learn from our mistakes. I hope you take these opportunities and take good care of one another." . This tearful message from June didn't only moved Tong's parents but as well answers Mew's question to Tong.

"If we can love someone so much how will we be able to handle it the day we are separated? And, if being separated is part of life, and you know about separation well. Is it possible that we can love someone and never be afraid of losing them? At the same time, Is it possible that, we can live our entire life without loving anyone at all?"

This movie taught me a lot of lesson. From then on, whenever I try my best accept a losses, I watch this movie.
