Top Ten Saddest Movies

261Donnie Darko

Not only the saddest but it is the best movie of all time. There is one movie that might compare in sadness and that is the pianist but I don't see it on this list.

I've never cried at a movie but here I came closer than when I saw Titanic (which I think is slightly overrated)

So so sad. Saving the world and sacrificing everything to save the world is one thing, but doing it knowing that the one you love won't remember your very existence is something else entirely.

262Alabama Moon
263Miracles from Heaven

Saddest movie I have seen. Cried every 10 minutes. Couldn't stop.

257 seriously! This should be number one

264The Patriot

So many death scenes... They're so emotional, like when the guy who plays Mel's son died, I had lost it.

265The Perfect Storm

Oh yeah, I cried on this one. My mom had just died in 2002, and I took a line from near the end of the movie to be read at her funeral. I couldn't do it myself, I had lost my voice.

266My Life

The fact that I see top ten list of saddest movies ever that do no include this movie says a lot about top ten list. Michael Keaton is fantastic in this from start to finish. I have never shed more tears in two hours at any point in My Life.

Not only does it make you cry like a baby, my life teaches you about how important every second of your life is. But the family relationships when you know someone is dying is a killer. I wish they put this movie on T.V. or even cable soon.

So sad. The only reason it's not rated higher is that not enough people have seen it. The death scene is done beautifully.

Should be in the top ten! One of the most underrated movies of all time. If you don't cry you are not human. At last a real film about real life.

268The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou

Oh my god, I cry at every Wes Anderson film. They should all be on here, seriously. Especially The Royal Tenenbaums.

269The Mission

See the movie and the music from Ennio Morricone deserves your attention.

270Moon Child

The saddest movie ever..
It's about five friends. One of them is a vampire. In the end all of them are gonna die.
Main Cast:
Gackt as Sho
HYDE as Kei - Ga-Gackt

271Red Dog

The most tear jerking film I have ever watched, even just thinking about it brings a tear to my eye. A bit like hachie with a sad but happy ending and the loyalty a dog who searched the western side of Australia not knowing that his master was dead and when he finally comes back after years of looking for him just lays down at his graveside and passes away and once more he is reunited with the person he chose to be loyal too :(

Not many people will have seen this movie, it is an Australian movie. But it won 3 awards and is probably the saddest Australia movie ever. Everyone I know that has seen this movie has cried twice. There are two points in the film that anyone that watches it might need some tissues at hand.

I don't usually shed a tear in most movies, or, being a guy, admit to it... But this one got the tears flowing!

Very similar to Hachi: A Dog's Tale. - zxm

272The Impossible

How is this movie #265? Whenever I cry during sad movies (which is very rarely) I generally cry silent tears and I'm still able to watch the movie. However, with this one, I was shaking with anguish and I legitimately had to pause it before I could finish it. There were so many times that this movie really affected me and even now (almost 6 months since I watched it) I am tearing up just thinking about it. To be honest, I only watched this movie because Tom Holland is the new Spiderman but I am so so glad I did. It is a beautiful movie that deserves way more credit.

I've legit never cried in a movie before but literally every time I see this movie I cry multiple times, it is the most emotional film made and it ills me that most people don't even know about it even when it was academy award nominated - u_maddox_bro

This is an amazingly emotional movie. And its real life, which makes it so much more dramatic. You feel as if you are there in the tsunami with them... It is so sad and terrifying, yet so beautiful and touching. How is this not #1...

Number 1 in my book. I couldn't breathe through the tears but it's beautifully executed.

273Inside Out

When I saw it for the first time in theaters I probably cried 45% of the time

How is this so low? It is much sadder than up. - Triceratops

Many parts made me cry. Most especially the part that Bing Bong dies and tells Joy to take Riley to the moon for him T_T. And also the part when Joy looks back at the memories in the dump and then cries T_T. The ending, when Joy and Sadness returns, and Sadness turns all the happy core memories into sad ones, and then when Riley is crying to her parents. The saddest animated movie for me

This is the only movie to make me cry (possibly its because its one of the only good things my home states done in a long time)
P.S.A.I. was one of the most stupid movies I have ever seen. - fireinside96
