Thanks for the reminder. I actually remembered about 12 hours later what it was called. It didn't make me cry but I thought it was very bleak. keira knightly was... well K k but she was marginally more appealing in Atonement. Which didn't make me cry either, so maybe we need a list of films that didn't make us cry! i LIKED THE CHARACHTER of Briony Tallis, the younger sisteer. She was honest and believable.. So! sHE MADE A MISTAKE,DON'T WE ALL?

Cyberbully. Made me cry.

Emily Osment's emphatic portrayal of the cyberbullied teen was very effective.

Here are some of the movies that made me cry:

Phoebe In Wonderland (USA 2009)
I saw this movie just recently for the first time, and the scene when 9-year-old Phoebe (awesome Elle Fanning) cries in her mother's arms ("I can't help it") really got me.

War Horse (USA/UK 2011)
the barbed wire scene

I've Loved You So Long (France/Canada 2008)
when Juliette (Kristin Scott Thomas) finally reveals the true story of her son's death
(Note: The DVD has French language only with English subtitles)

Shadowlands (UK 1993)
gets me every time

Million Dollar Baby (USA 2004)
after the accident my tears run like waterfalls

Brokeback Mountain (Canada/USA 2005)
the shirt scene in the parents' house

The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas (UK/USA 2008)
the shocking and unexpected ending

Precious (USA 2009)
several moments that make me cry

Love Actually (UK/France 2003)
the X-mas gift (CD instead of a necklace) and Emma Thompson's heartbreaking reaction

When the wind blows (UK 1986)
the naivety of that lovely old couple just tears me up

why did cyberbully make you cry? could you tell us all a bit more about this film?. Not everyone would have seen it.

hI Bubbles. Flowers of War is yet another film I haven't seen and I now have a list of five films which should keep Amazon happy!

In reply to an earlier post on 17 Jun 2012 09:19:32 BDT
THERE ARE FOUR FILMS ON YOUR list which I haven't seen. It is useful to know if they are all dvds buta short synopsis would also be useful and whether the films are made in Britain, America or whereever. AMERICAn FILMS CAN TEND TO STRETCH INCREDULITY A LITTLE!

@Ms. J. C. Gilbert

I added the production countries and years of each film to my earlier post.

A look at these pages may answer your questions:


By the way, which 4 films did you mean?

In reply to an earlier post on 17 Jun 2012 18:13:36 BDT
Thank you ks-cologne. I am a bit of a latecomer to the wonderful encyclopeadic nature of wikipedia.
I thought no.1 i on your list might be interesting, followed by no.3 and no 10. The fourth one was no.8
Thanks for listing them again and I will have a look at their plots/storylines on Wikipedia.

I can't watch films which make me cry too much as it is a bit painful if the story is true and people are dying through the stupidity of others. It makes me feel angry and yet impotent.
I am guessing that this is another of those poppies in the field scenarios and I would rather watch Oh what a lovely war, which makes fun of those who are the leaders as well as pointing to the poignancy of loss. Effectively an anti-war film thru' humour rather than horror like Apocolyse Now.

one of my favourite oldies also madame x starring lana turner and john forsythe .a great weepie and lana goes from being a great beauty to a complete demoralized alcoholic who is accused of murder ..see it and judge for yourself.

Most recently: Sarah's Key...probably the most tragic film I've ever seen!

Lately for some reason Dumbo has made me well up when I see Mrs Jumbo rushing towards the bars to see Dumbo and you see her leg chained up and then obviously the famous scene where she's rocking him with her trunk.

The Fox and the Hound I found really sad.

However, the film that I probably can't watch very often is The Grave of the Fireflies

That film gets me every time. There is no happy ending. In fact the beginning starts off with a character dying at what seems like a station. Their life being so seemingly meaningless. The whole story is tragic and a tale of a downfall. This is definitely one of the saddest Studio Ghibli films (I know this wasn't Miyazaki's work).

The Shawshank Redemption at the end, because it makes me so happy
The end of Watership Down, again this is a killer happy/sad moment
Gladiator (there's just something about the death sequence that gets me every time)
The endings of Charlotte's Web and Beauty and the Beast always get me too.

Fear Eats The Soul made me cry. There is a scene where Emmi is sat on stairs eating her lunch alone,Fear Eats The Soul [1973] [DVD] because her work colleages have shunned her due to her affair. It moves me in a way that is not sentimental.

The Twighliht films.... cried at the end of all of them......tears of joy that this crap is now finished....!!! and i went to take my daughter who for some strange reason thinks they are great....

I was very noved by this film too. In fact I saw it twice with an interval between of several years, so seeing it a second time gave me some emotional objectivity. The importance of the film (fASSBINDER) lies in the lack of understanding by the women's family and neighbours and her susceptibilty to the good opinion of others. A mini tragedy, and highly recommended.

What a coincidence - "Angst essen Seele auf" (Fear eats the soul) was televised again just 4 days ago in German TV in high-def quality and I took the opportunity to record it. It's a very moving masterpiece from Fassbinder, and IMO it shows Brigitte Mira's best performance.

By the way, Brigitte Mira was the German voice of that lovely old lady in that wonderful film When The Wind Blows [DVD].
