The Highlander ..... where he marries Heather and they're skipping around the fields quite happily .... but the camera moves in on Heather and she's aged.

Then she's really old and dies in his arms ...... :( :( :( :(

Desperately heartwrenching.

The Sound of Music when the children are singing sadly to the Captain and the Baroness out on the terrace after Maria has left them...

...and then Maria arrives back from the convent and hugs them all, and the captain looks at her and his children...and, oh! what a moment.

Those two flooded me. To Kill A Mockingbird has also has a sad ending, and the classic of weepies - ET. Spielberg has made me cry quite often in his films :oops:

I'm sure music plays a big part in this, all the above had superb scores that were really touching.

I uncontrollably burst into tears looking at the little girls face at the moment of Sophie's choice as I was not prepared for that at all...

I shed a lot of 'normal' tears at film as I'm a big cry-baby....

I think I last cried watching Wit by Mike Nichols with a splendid Emma Thompson. No wait..., it was V for Vendetta.... (watched it twice, cried twice...).

Sophie's Choice made me cry too Sonne, but I think it was the end that did it. Another film I saw recently that had a similar effect at the end was Meet Joe Black. That flooded me :( :pp:

To be honest, I'll cry at pretty much anything, the big fucking wuss that I am. But there're three that are guaranteed.

Roy's speech at the end of Blade Runner- "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark at the Tannhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die" ALWAYS fucking gets me.

The other two are both Tim Burton (and have Johnny Depp involved, like so many great movies do). Ed Wood- pretty much ANY scene with Martin Landau as Bela. The way Depp-as-Wood's totally shiny optimism rubs up against Landau-as-Lugosi's "being nearly dead"-ness is utterly heartbreaking.

And, cheesy though it may be, Winona Ryder dancing in the snow at the end of Edward Scissorhands. Other than Ed Wood, I think that's Burton's greatest film. It does cheese at ALL the right bits.


Oh, and I forgot the last few minutes of Harvey. Harvey is quite possibly the most beautiful film ever made. And one of the funniest. Especially if, like me, you have a drink problem and are still UTTERLY convinced, in spite of all the evidence, that the way to make the world better is just to be nice to people.

That's one of the few films that really brings a lump to my throat. Especially at the end where he asks not to be blindfolded because he's afraid of the dark :(

Th end of TKAM is a real tear jerker.

The bit in Wonderful Life where Jimmy Stewart says" I wanna live...please God, I wanna live" AND the very end when they are all coming to his rescue with the money.

The bit in Wuthering Heights when Larry O says to Merle O( who has just died" haunt me but never leave me"..,It gets me every time. :( :(

The end of "True Grit" when 'Duke' Wayne says" come up and see a fat old man some time" and the title song sung by Glen Campbell.

The bit in ''Sense and Sensibility" when Hugh Grant proposes to Emma T.

There's nowt quite like a good cry! :yippee:

Well it doesn't hurt any, to do that, does it? I always remember Dolly P's advice to "give a smile away". I always have and I - almost - always get one back. :yippee:

I agree Mr.M. I think writing incidental music for films is a gifted occupation: they seem to match the movie's mood superbly.

I just remembered another weepie.

"Prince of Tides", right at the end when he is talking about his life...and of course that wonderful poignant music.
