Re: Saddest movie?

Grave of the Fireflies is the saddest movie of all time. I thought it was considered scientific fact at this point.

Yeah, but you were probably having your period.

Anyways, movies with animals tug at my sensitive heart strings. Old Yeller, The Incredible Journey, Project X, Turner and Hooch.

Nope, not acceptable. Infraction for trolling, comments to PM.

Either Jean de Florette or Penny Serenade.

I'm not sure I can bring myself to watch either movie ever again.

Testament. If you don't cry at this movie, you have no soul.
Seconded. It's a small film, but overwhelming. Almost 30 years later, I still think Jane Alexander was robbed of the Oscar.

Of course, she was up against Shirley McClaine for Terms of Endearment...another movie that makes me cry every damn time I see it.

Oh, yeah. Steel Magnolias, too.

Atonement always gets me, too.

Re: Saddest movie?

I don't know about all around "sad", but I cried over the closing credits of "The World According to Garp". After Garp was assasinated by the Ellen Jamsesian and the movie ended with that little baby (who was Garp as a child) happily floating in the sky (I think the sky), for some reason the tears just started flowing. Weird.
