I guess you already figured out the point of this thread, but for those who are a bit.... slow, here is THE rule:

Name the saddest moment you`ve seen in a movie.



I`d had to say it`s when Tom Hanks (in Cast away) loses Mr. Wilson in the middle of a sea (Mr. Wilson is the volleyball)

The English Patient, when she is dying in the cave of swimmers, and her flashlight goes out, and all you can hear is her ragged breath... * sob*
and it is even sadder when he comes back to find her body and carries it out into the desert* crying hysterically now*

can i just say that i don't think this thread is a very good idea...a lot of movies have their sad moments at the end and i think that this thread might give away a lot of endings.

The second half of 'Dancer in the Dark'.

A depressing, low budget musical starring Bjork.

Never before or since has a film reduced to nerve-wracking convulsive sobs...

Good songs though

Well there is a way of keeping this thread going

You can name the film but you can put the description of the scene you are thinking of as the same colour as the background. The only way to see it is to highlight the white text.

This gives spoilerphobes the opportunity so see the films but avoid having them spoiled like so....

I totally agree. That movie was so depressing!

Anyone seen Hearts in Atlantis? I'm pretty sure I cried when I saw it! (But then again, I cry in most movies! ubblol) Anthony Hopkins was fantastic in it though!

.All things are beautiful if we take the time to look.

I think that's the only movie I cried openly in the cinema... and I'd read the books before, so I knew what was going to happen shrug

I suppose reading about death penalty is different from seeing someone on the chair, even in a movie!!

'Dancer in the Dark' beats 'The Green Mile' hands down for prison-based weepies.

Bjork is Slema, a Czech immigrant in 1960s America toiling away in a factory to save for an operation to save her son from going blind like she is. To escape from the harsh realities of life she frequently sees the world like a musical.
(for spoiler-filled description highlight below)
When her desperate landlord steals her savings she is forced to batter him to death to get it back. After depositing the money, she is arrested and refuses to defend herself in court. Despite her decision she falls to pieces during her execution (screaming in despair in a very Bjork way). Only when her friend tells her that her son's had the operation that she imagines she's in a musical, sings, her voice soaring. Interrupted by the sound of her neck snapping as she is hanged


No matter how much I cried, there ARE times I believe its a happy ending...

It was a good few years ago when I saw thhat movie so I don't remember it that well, but if I remember correctly, it's not a happy ending!

Man...there are so many films with teary endings...

Most of them are already named here so I'll put something different...lets see...

I guess at the end of House of Flying Daggers when the two lovers are tearing each other to shreds...and she pulls the knife out to save him...(trying not to say too much in case people haven't seen the film...) but yes I cried for a long time after that.

I'm a big hard man (!!!! rolleyes) and I cried at the Fellowship of the Ring when Boromir dies... I hate watching/reading about hero's deaths. frown

But then, I was young when it came out. I need to watch it again to see if I still do...

After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.

I may disagree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

My mom took me to that when I was wee little because it was a cartoon... wasn't quite prepared for all the dead bunnies.
