Good Will Hunting (“It’s not your fault”)
Bridges of Madison County (Meryl Streep’s hand resting on the car door handle at the intersection stop light)

😭😭
This also came into my head. Pleading with Meryl Streep to open the car door and go to the pick - up with Clint Eastwood waiting for her at the traffic lights to change her depressing farmers wife life with the man who came into her life unexpectedly. Very tearfull

Truly, Madly, Deeply 😭

The death scene of The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover; made even more harrowing by the brilliantly haunting soundtrack by Michael Nyman

The same here , i have never got rid of the feeling i had as a child leaving the cinema after that bloody film .
That’s actually the film I meant when I write ‘Tarka the Otter’ on my list 🙄 - yep, my Mum had to take me out of the cinema at the ice cream intermission screaming my head off. Even the prospect of eating ice cream in a tub with a little wooden spatula could not get me to go back into that friggin cinema.

Sort of a modern day Brief Encounter - I had lump in throat with both films!

The death bed scene at the end of the Musical version of Les Miserables.
Have seen Les Mis at the threatre 6 times - and blubbed every single time at that scene.

I always wondered two things about that film , 1 ) why would anyone write a film like that and 2 ) how can it be classed as a kids film ? .

The first film I cried at was, 1,000,000 BC

It was at the cavemen monkey bit.
Or was it that I realised that I was too old to be breast fed by Rachael Welsh,

The Lives of Others and The Snowman.

I can still vividly recall the first time I watched the Snowman as a kid - there I was thinking this is such a magical and fun fantasy and then that final scene. The Snowman melted. Closing credits. Devastating.

Schindler’s list at the end when he says he should have done more after saving all those lives. Then them putting the stones on his grave just to really finish me off!

And also, The Pursuit of Happiness, when he loses his shoe, when they sleep in the toilet and the end. That’s a real heart string puller!
