Lesbian lovers' fidelity is tested in Yes or No 2

Tomboy Kim and her cute girlfriend Pie are still together after the college roomates became lovers in the 2010 cult-hit Yes or No? So, I Love You.

In Yes or No 2 (Yes or No 2 รักไม่รัก อย่ากั๊กเลย, Yes or No 2 Rak Mai Rak...Ya Kuk Loei), the much-anticipated sequel opening in Thai cinemas this week, their relationship is tested when the two young women go their separate ways for internships, with Pie (Sucharat Manaying) going to Chanthaburi and Kim (Supanart Jittaleela) heading off to picturesque Nan Province where she catches the eye of the attractive Jam (Apitha Klaiudom).

Sarassawadee Wongsompetch again directs, with a screenplay by the popular writer Nepalee.

Billed as the first openly lesbian Thai film, Yes or No didn't do all that well in Thai cinemas, but it became big in other parts of Asia, attracting huge followings of fans in Taiwan, where it was released on DVD, China and the Philippines.

A Bangkok Post article from last month examines the phenomenon.

In another Bangkok Post article, independent executive producer Chatchada Musikaratuay talks more about the film's success. She says there's plans for the release of a Yes or No DVD in the U.S., and it seems likely the sequel will be picked up there as well.

There's an English-subtitled trailer for Yes or No 2 embedded below.

Please, no questions about where to download movies or subtitle files.

Please read the FAQ about Thai films on DVD before asking about where to find a Thai movie on DVD with English subtitles.
