Top Ten Saddest Movies


The Contenders: Page 24XW

461Nights in Rodanthe

Haven't you people watched this? You better this movie it made me cry I never even get bored of watching it all over again.


As roger ebert once said in his review: this film is unlike anything martin scorsese had done in a long time. And I'm sure it means a lot to his heart.

Asa is really good in this movie, but Ben Kingsley makes
It. Never cried in a Scorsese movie.

464Léon: The Professional

I watched most of movies in this list but none of these put a lump on my throat like Léon: The Professional. That movies should be at least on the top ten. With the excellent acting of Natalie Portman and the theme song Shape of my heart, Léon: The Professional is the saddest movie I ever watched

465Super 8
466La Strada

Federico Fellini's film (The Rogue) is so mesmerizing, you can't believe you are watching this tragic tale of a simple -minded waif who is abused be a travelling performer. It also happens to be the first film ever to win Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars in 1956.

Anthony Quinn and Giulietta Masina give a most powerful and convincing performance.

467Jason's Lyric

I cried during the whole movie, even after the movie... Just the thought in my mind :'(

468Black Dog
470Taking Chance

Why isn't this movie on the list. I guess maybe many have not seen it.


This has to be the most tragic of all the Marvel movies, the betrayal that Loki feels when he discovers his true self. The only thing he had ever wanted was to be Thor's equal, and in a last demonstration to his father that he was worthy, he took over the throne. But it was never enough for Odin, and so he finally gave up, letting go. Now let's get this movie up in #1

472Flowers for Algernon
473An American Tail
474Charlie St. Cloud

This is the saddest movie I've ever watched. This movies is just got me cry all the time, I watched it with my brother, and just like me, my brother also cried.

Seriously people? I had to add this to the list!?!
This is the saddest thing ever! Especially because zac!

475Rain Man
476Red Riding Hood

It was so sad when the wolf bit the man's hand at the end

This is a great movie


It was so scary that I couldn't see it again and so many people died as well

479Dead Man Walking

This movie has two things: Nuns and death row inmates, the last 30 minutes of the film is so powerful that it left my whole classroom quiet, the only sounds left in the room were the sounds of tissues being blown.

I honestly can't believe Titanic is all the way up there at number one, when this movie can make grown men murmur "This room is dusty is all" while trying to suck up the mucus streaming down their nose.

480Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

Can't recommend enough. Absolutely broke me

This movie was so sad! I cried twice :(
