Top Ten Saddest Movies

The Top Ten
1 Schindler's List Schindler's List Product Image

Certainly a very moving and powerful film, beautiful realised and immensely crafted, a true masterpiece. Amongst many amazing scenes, one always makes me cry, it is set close to the end of the film, where Oscar Schindler has to flee and is given a gold ring made from the tooth of one of the Jewish workers he has saved, He breaks down on realising that he could have saved more people, he looks at his car, 10 people, I could have saved 10 more people, he looks at his gold Nazi pin, I could have saves two people, this is gold, two people, definitely one. There is a moment when he has a look of utter loss and despair on his face and this is some of the finest acting I have seen, let alone in this film itself. How Liam Neeson did not win the Oscar for his performance beggars belief.

This film wrecked me. A film has never made me cry aside from perhaps a single tear, but Schindler's List is the sole exception. I didn't cry during the film, I actually felt strangely emotionally distant throughout it. It wasn't until the film ended that the emotional weight of what I'd just seen hit me like a sledgehammer.
I sobbed - not just cried, SOBBED - for a full 15 minutes and wasn't able to stop. I couldn't believe it. I'd never had such an extreme reaction to any medium of storytelling ever, and I haven't since.
Even now, just hearing the film's main score is enough for me to feel a heavy lump in my throat.

This has to be the saddest movie ever. Yes Titanic had deaths. It had children dying, but look at this. Look at this: Hundreds of thousands of children being taken away and gassed in a tank with no escape and not knowing what's going on. Children on the Titanic eventually easily found out and wouldn't been shot if they moved but In schindler's list children get so just for trying to run.

For one of the most inappropriate and darkest movies ever made - it is mandatory viewing for anyone and everyone at the age of 15 and beyond. So beautifully made and powerful that it brings some of the most brave and iron people to tears. It's ending scene where Oskar breaks down outside his factory with all the jews he saves because he could have saved ten - two - or even just one more. How a man famed in money and power with a soft spot could turn into the greatest war hero. Cinema has made me cry twice in my life. This is one.

2 Titanic Titanic Product Image

This movie was amazing. The plot alone, not even including the detailed sets and historical accuracy (which were amazing too), was so heart wrenching and beautiful. It showed how two people went against all odds to find each other, despite their class differences, and find a way to love each other even when it was forbidden. They went through so much together in such a short time, and just when you think Jack and Rose have survived all their obstacles, BA BAM. You were wrong. He dies. Especially when they started playing that song in the end... My Heart Will Go On... And how Rose ended up doing exactly as Jack made her promise to do and live her life peacefully and live to her hundreds.. My God. What a beautiful tragedy.

It's not just the love story that made it tragic. It's the entire thing. The mother, putting her two children to sleep; the old couple, who simply just lay beside each other; a woman, dead, baby in her arms; the musicians playing... all these as they gave up their chance for survival, because it is slim to none. It's so, so sad. And, of course, Rose and Jack. When Rose saw the boat and turned to Jack, only to find him dead. I cannot forget when she finally realized that she had no choice but to let go of Jack's body in the water. God, I cried for one whole hour. Note: I don't cry easily. Such a tragic movie. To those who haven't watched it, you're missing out your life. 12/10 stars.

Titanic is by far the best movie I've ever seen in my whole entire life. It's literally my favorite. It truly shows what real love is and how far you will go for the person you love. This movie is an incredible romance, both of the actors did an amazing job in making this movie the masterpiece it is. I've watched this over 100 times and that's not even an exaggeration, you really never get tired of it. Each and every time I've watched it I've cried, and I'm not even that type of person. There's a reason this movie is the first one that comes up when you Google "saddest movie ever" or "movies that make you cry". If you're looking for a romance, a thriller, and a tragedy all in one, and something that'll stick with you your whole life, I think you'll really really like Titanic.

I know this is one of the saddest movies ever. But what makes it sadder than The Green Mile is that it is the Titanic. Not just the ship sinking & over 700 people dies, no that was super sad too. But Jack and Rose's love... Its not that they just met and it isn't true love. But it IS! He died for her, he went in jail not because it was he's fault not at all it was for her and only her she lived he died for her! Not for him for Her. And does green mile have that... No I don't think so. listen to me! Best couple in a movie and saddest movie. And if you don't believe me... Well watch this for 4 hours and then tell me that you did not cry or shed a tear. Yes. , then come back and say jack dawson and rose dewitt or should I say Jack and rose dawson are together forever.

3 The Green Mile The Green Mile Product Image

This movie is one of Tom Hanks' greatest movies and is Michael Clarke Duncan's greatest movie he ever acted in. The story is amazing, though I wouldn't have expected any less from Stephen King, and the acting was phenomenal. Doug Hutchison's portrayal of Percy Wetmore is a perfect representation of the character in the book and is also the perfect example of how to play a character that the viewer, once he's introduced, wants to punch in the face after every word he speaks. Tom Hanks' portrayal of Paul Edgecomb is flawless, and Michael Clarke Duncan's portrayal of John Coffey was a work of art, the best of his career. 10/10 movie.

I saw this a few years back in high school, accidentally. It changed my life. That day I became a filmmaker and I've been studying film ever since. I never knew a story could be told in that way. I remember after seeing the film I didn't watch T.V. for over a week, because it was so engrained in my mind.

And Tom Hanks who along with Denzel is the finest actor of our generation, I will always commend him for this film, because he didn't take the spotlight away from Michael Clark Duncan.

How powerful story can be. May we never forget that.

I was pretty sure Monokuma was waiting to press that execution button when John Coffey was found guilty and was sentenced to death.

My wife and I were both bawling for at LEAST half of this film. I have been an avid fan of Stephen King since 1995...his books, mostly. As far as film is concerned 'The Green Mile' and 'Stand By Me', (the latter of which was adapted from King's novella ',The Body'), are the only on-screen adaptations of King's work that I love just as much as the books themselves. The Green Mile is a heart-wrenching and beautiful story and film. I don't watch it very often because of the extreme effect it has on me and my wife refuses to watch it again, though boting it as one of the best films she has ever seen. AMAZING movie and story. But damn is it hearbreaking? I'll tell the world...

4 Forrest Gump Forrest Gump Product Image

"Life is like a box of chocolates. You'll never know whatcha gonna get." "Stupid is as stupid does." I am crying like crazy. Forrest is born without good legs, bullied, isn't smart, loses Jenny on multiple occasions, lost his best friend, Bubba, loses his mom, then loses Jenny weeks after marriage. And the little letter writen by Forrest Jr. And they had to add the birds flying away in the final scenes. Writing that last line actually choked me up.

The end where he stands over Jenny's grave and breaks down is extremely sad. But also his best good friend Bubba dies, his mom (whom he adores) dies and then of course there's the part where he meets his son which is very emotional. Forrest Gump is the greatest movie of all time.

The saddest movie ever. This movie will made anyone cry and really think about their personal lives and relationships in the past and in the future. This move is a life changer that will effect everyone.

This movie had sent me on a roller coaster. I have never felt so much joy for a character and felt so much pity at the same time. I bawl every time I watch the movie. Greatest movie of all time.

5 The Boy in the Striped Pajamas The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Product Image

I've only seen this movie once, at school. I think I did slightly cry at the end. I was about 12 or 13 at the time. I should probably rewatch it again sometime. Probably a go to movie for when you need a good cry.

I don't care how historically inaccurate this film is. The Aunt's funeral already had me tearing up! I was bawling for 20 minutes straight, and I mean WALING with sorrow. And keep in mind, I'm not the type of person to cry too much due to sad movies. Titanic, Old Yeller, Bambi, ALL the classic examples of sad films, no water works, but THIS movie... There's really no reason to go back to this movie after you know the twist, but if there's any reason to watch it, it's to give yourself a good kick in the emotional crotch.

!...I cried all the way through the film and it is just very depressing when the old prisoner spills the wine and he gets beat up by the Nazi soldier.
And it just makes me think why were they treated like this just because of their religion.
But when Bruno goes into thew gas chamber thinking that they are just taking a shower.
I just was bouncing up and down trying to tell them to get out of there...
I think this film has to be one of the saddest films ever...

This movie broke me. I've watched documentaries on the holocaust since I was 12 years old, complete with the body pits, starving children, and executions. But this movie broke me in a way none of those did. The character of Elsa was what brought it home for me. She was oblivious at first, then, horrified at what was happening, she tried to convince her husband to stop. Her wails of grief over Bruno's abandoned clothing will forever be in my memory.

6 Up Up Product Image

"Up" builds up the strongest, most simply wonderful love story ever crafted in less than five minutes. The love story of Carl and Ellie highlighting the ups and downs of life being out raw emotion from the audience. At the end when Carl goes through the Adventure Book and finds Ellie put their life adventure in the back just brings the sadness full circle. This movie doesn't get the recognition it deserves on this list because it's an animated film, but "Up" and "Toy Story 3" prove that animated films sometimes mean more than any other life action one could ever dream of.

It's strange to see a movie that makes you cry at the beginning and at the end, But at the same time I find myself laughing and enjoying it the entire time. Unlike most movies it doesn't focus on the sad parts, it doesn't build up the sadness to make us cry, it builds up the sadness to make the message and the adventure all the more enjoyable.

Come on! This film managed to make me cry within the first 10 minutes with barely a word spoken. Pixar's amazing story-telling skills managed to convey an entire life-story with such poignancy that I dare anyone to not cry during the sequence explaining the old man's past. Vote this higher guys!

I cried in the first ten minutes and the ending I wish there is a second one. my favourite character is dug and I think if there was a second it should be about how russell and dug is going to find carls house. This going to be after the fist ten minutes of the movie is how russell and carl spend so much time together and then carl passes away. and at the end of the movie you see carl is in heaven with ellie the end

7 Marley and Me Marley and Me Product Image

I had a yellow lab named Andy once. He was hit by a car and I never got to say goodbye. I had a black lab named Luke after that and we had him put to sleep. I wasn't there but I hug him, sobbing, saying I loved him so much before my mom drove off with him trying his hardest to look out the trunk's window. Every time I see Marley die, I see both Luke and Andy dying at the same time. Need I say more; I break down, screaming in tears every time I see that one close up shot of him shutting his soft, little eyes one lat time.

At first I was happy in this movie but when Marley ran away and they announced Marley was dead I started to cry my eyes out. Marley was the cutest dog ever. I cried when I went to bed I cried in my sleep I cried in the morning and evening and any time of day because of the death of the poor dog. I'm very easy to make cry. In Ariel I was scared for the dog when the Prince was saving him not for the Prince. That shows my love for dogs. Although I also get sad when humans die.

I first saw this movie when I was like 8 years old. And when I tell you I cried, I C.R.I.E.D. Intense crying for like 20 minutes. You'll tell me I was young and that's why I cried. Nope still cry as much each time I watch it and I promise myself each time I'll not rewatch it because it's so sad... But I still rewatch it lol.

It seems like such a light funny movie, which it is, but it is also an very emotional story that includes love and loss. I am easy to cry in movies, but not sob. Usually silent tears streaming down my cheeks. As soon as things weren't looking good for Marley, I was gone. And the sobbing did not stop until like a half hour after the movie was done (at least). The same happened for the book (from which I read first). And much to my surprise, writing about this, I am now crying. It's just so sad :'(

8 Grave of the Fireflies Grave of the Fireflies Product Image

I've watched Titanic, the Note book, My Sister's keeper, and all those other films which are supposed to make you cry, but they don't affect me. This film, however, had me in tears by the end of it, I was still crying long after the end of the credits. There is something so brutal in the matter-of-fact way death is treated and shown in this film, the way it is accepted. Most sad films tend to ere towards melodramatic, but this simple, understated way of dealing with death shows how many thousands of others went through the exact same thing as the two protagonist, which doesn't help when you're already bawling your eyes out. The artwork is beautiful and subtle, everything about this film is perfect, and it's the only film I've ever watched that has made me cry, so in my opinion, it is by far the saddest movie ever. Number 1, biggest tear-jerker.

Only the thought about this movie is enough to make you cry. And I have to mention that there's something more than just a tragedy and mourning the loss of a loved one. Actually here the characters don't even got the time to do it, for there every minute there can be another bombing attack, another loss.. And just the way the two poor orphans are left with no one in life, but each other, is enough to make the difference. The way the brother realizes that he's the only one who can prevent her from the threats outside, and the heart-breaking ending when he sees that he could do nothing to save her, neglecting his own pain and fear, and forgetting he's a child left all-alone too.. It's really depressing as hell with all the people dying out there..

Grave of the Fireflies is a billion times more sadder than Titanic, Schindler's List and the Boy in the Striped Pajamas. Those movies are supposed to produce tears on people's faces but this movie is totally different from the rest of the films. In my opinion, Schindler's List tells us the grim reality of World War Two and there's nothing emotional and beautiful about it, I watched the movie and not a single tear came from my eyes. But this animated movie made me sob more than ten times. This movie showed how people in Japan in World War Two had been through all the terror and misery, also it showed us real inspired love about two siblings who fought hard to survive and the older brother took great care of his younger sister when she was dying, and unlike Schindler's list, it showed less blood and gore which I found Schindler's List pretty disturbing. Anyways, Grave of the Fireflies is a true masterpiece of cinema and considered one of the saddest and greatest anime movies of all time ...more

This movie is all about despair. Not one thing in this movie can be called completely happy. There are a few times were the have a moment but its an illusion to cover the death and hopelessness all around them. One of the saddest movies, only watch if you don't want to feel any kind of happy while watching, yet still an amazing work because of just how real all of it really is. The truth behind this story and the reason to watch it is to understand that it's real and it's what happens during wars. I believe it should be higher up on the list. Because in some of the others there is hope, if even just a glimmer of it, however in this movie there can be no hope.

9 Hachi: A Dog's Tale Hachi: A Dog's Tale Product Image

Oh my God, I knew what would happen to Hachi in the movie. However, on my bus trip to New York City watching this movie I couldn't help but cry. The whole bus burst into a million tears, people were asking others for a tissue. I cried at 75% of the movie because I had a dog that looked just like Hachi that died two years prior. I'm not a very sensitive person, didn't cry at Titanic, etc. This story in itself is amazing, nine years Hachi waited for his master to return, becoming a regular at the station where his master would arrive from work each day. Then you see this scene. A scene where Hachi remembers all the times he had with his master... And you break to pieces.

I've seen most of these movies on this list, and I have to say that Hachi is the only one that truly made me cry. The others are sad indeed, but Hachi is downright sorrowful. It is a remake of a well-known Japanese folktale that comes with the masterful telling of the relationship between a dog and his owner. And like other sad dog stories, one of them dies (at first). However, it isn't the dog but rather the owner. This is something truly unique as it continues to tell the story of the dog after his master's death. It feels so much worse to see how a loyal dog like Hachi being unable to move on even ten YEARS after his master's disappearance. His loyalty made him spend his life forever waiting at that train station.

I'm not a big crier, I have seen quite a few movies on a few "saddest movies list" and while many are great and touching, I haven't cried in any. This is not the case with Hachi. I was crying like a little baby at the end. In the past 5+ years I have only cried twice. When I watched Hachiko and when I said my farewell to my wife and son that I wouldn't see for six months.
I got the movie again two days ago, and just fast forwarded it a little bit and had to stop because just a few scenes were going to make me cry again, then I started remembering it at work and my eyes started watering again.

Saddest movie I've ever seen.

Just saw this movie last night for the first time. I was very familiar with the true story and this interpretation was incredible. I especially like the symbolism of the fetching. On that last day Haichi had Parker, he knew something bad was going to happen. Didn't want him to go to the station and tried to make him miss the train. Then, after all the time, he grabs the ball and gets to the station in time to get Parker to play fetch for the first time - because, as the Japanese professor said, he finally had a reason to fetch - to keep Parker from leaving, knowing that it would be the last time Haichi would see him alive. The flash back scene while Haichi is dying is one of the most emotional scenes in a movie that I have ever seen. Made me go and give my pets a LOT of attention to let them know how much I appreciate them!

10 Requiem for a Dream Requiem for a Dream Product Image

Totally agree with you. I haven't seen another movie sadder than this. IT totally crushes you and makes you feel and experience the futility/ fragility of human life itself filled with all the vices that so very convincingly lure us in the beginning only to leave us destroyed at the end. No words could describe the movie. People who can appreciate movie for the stories they narrate - you have missed something if you haven't watched this movie!

This movie is so depressing it made me feel sick for a week. It follow each character to unimaginable lows. The only reason this movie is not number one is because most people have never seen it. I don't blame them. Just the thought of this movie puts me in a bad place.

This movie legitimately depressed me. Saddest movie I've ever seen because out doesn't end in love, or even death. Death would make this movie happier. Every time I watch this movie I become sad the second I begin it. Beautifully story of addiction and family.

It is a very good movie but it will make you cry and you will be depressed for days after. for around 2 weeks this was all I could think of. This might even be too sad for it to even be enjoyable for some people. I could never watch this movie ever again. It has really disturbed me.

11 The Notebook The Notebook Product Image

Every time I watch this movie I cry at the end. I always cry the moment Noah walks into Ally's room. I think this movie is the true meaning of love. My father told me every year after he dies on his birthday I have to watch this move. I just love this movie. I would watch this every day if I could. My brother has no feelings so he won't cry during this so I won't talk to him. I love the part when Noah fixes the house up just for Ally and she comes back to the house. I just love it! I believe in love now because of this movie. This is the way I would like to die.

This movie touches on real life experiences and what could actually happen to you! I don't see why this isn't number 1. Movies that are based on real life should have more meaning and touch your heart, the Notebook gets me every single time. And also The Curious Case of Benjamin Button should be on this list too!

I may be a female teenager, but I generally dislike chick-flicks. Sure, I'm fine if there's a main love interest in a film, but it has to be a secondary thing to the action, suspense, etc. Also, I'm not a very emotional person, and I certainly never get teary-eyed during a film.

In "The Notebook," I literally thought that I would die from bawling my eyes out.

Just watched this and crying my eyes out :c but one of the most amazing love movies I've watched in forever! Makes you feel good and sad at the same time I loved it so much! Going on my favourite movie list with the lost boys and the warriors and them too movies are hard too beat!

12 Saving Private Ryan Saving Private Ryan Product Image

I saw this movie when I was 12 with my aunt and cousins. It was the strangest experience I've ever had in a movie theater. When the movie ended, it felt like a funeral. No one looked at each other, everyone was silent. And some men still sat in their seats staring blankly at the screen. It felt so somber, like it was an accepted sad for what had to be done. It probably didn't help that my great grandfather was in that war, and had never spoke of it at all. Until the summer before he died that winter, we sat up one night playing cards and he told me everything. From how he hid against a tree, and could feel the bullets. And he said he felt he couldn't get small enough. How he got his two silver stars, and ultimately how his brother died in the war. My aunt honestly apologized to us in the car, saying she didn't know it was going to be like that.

Seeing this movie should be a prerequisite to becoming an American citizen, graduating High School. It's really too good for words and shows what Americans can accomplish when United in the cause of defeating true evil. Sadly if your over 30 years old you realize how the younger generation of today's Starbucks sipping, green haired transgendered I'm owed everything because I breathe air and woke up today doesn't understand or care much about American history and what it took to secure their rights to crap on the flag or kneel for the national anthem. It'll make even the stinkiest of turds feel grateful for what they have and shed a tear or two rusting out their nose earrings. It's really a million stars outta 5.

I once knew a said Private Ryan. He was a paratrooper in WWII and he might have actually dropped over Normandy I don't exactly remember. This movie always makes me think of him and I feel gloomy, but the saddest scene for me is when Vin Diesel's character is helplessly laying down in the rain, and he isn't sure if he's about to die or not, but just in case he makes sure the others give his dad his letter.

This movie was so fulfilling and action packed and sad. It made me understand just a tenth of what these amazing soldiers do for our country and for other soldiers. I highly recommend watching this movie to see just how amazing our soldiers are and how much they do for us. For sure cried in this movie. You can't help but shed a few tears. Alec Baldwin truly is amazing!

13 Million Dollar Baby Million Dollar Baby Product Image

I still cry. It caught me in a strange way. I never intended to watch this movie, but somehow I sat down and watched until the painful, heartbreaking end.
Today, when I was telling a friend about it, I cried like a river.
...the moment, when Clint Eastwood told the girl (Hilary Swank) the meaning of the oriental name on her fight-silk-coat, the moment when he had removed the respirator, her tears of love and happines (she was loved), death, was all so much too much.
The speed, the lack of sentimenality...the bond between those 2. It just breaks my heart, the bittersweet end. The cruelty of fate, it's not fair! The loss...I'm still carry that loss along with me.

Strange, how some movies can grap your heart, hold it, squeeze it...and you'll never be the same, as it usually happens, when your heart is touched - strongly - in ways only God and/or Higher Powers will understand.

What a great experience in understanding lost relationships. Whoever has lost a person in a lifetime and has to go on was touched by this movie. A great study of characters involved in their own world and dealing with outcomes they are not in control of. I am reminded of the movie "They Shoot Horses, Don't They"? What is a humane action if not allowing a person to choose their own destiny.

Million Dollar Baby might not be the most popular movie on this list but it sure as hell is the saddest. The movie really struck a chord with me especially since I recently lost a friend to suicide. This movie really shows the beautiful as well as the heartbreaking moments we live through. Clint Eastwood is truly a brilliant director, producer and actor.

I never initially thought this movie would be interesting. I perceived it was just a movie about "boxing". I was bored one day, and it came on. I started kind of half heartedly watching it. Needless to say, by the end, I was bawling like a baby. Simple one of the BEST movies I have ever seen, along with one of the most heart breaking. A must see!

14 Toy Story 3 Toy Story 3 Product Image

I am not the crying-over-books-and-movies type, but the scene when Andy was giving his toys to Bonnie was so emotional, that I burst into tears along with the whole cinema. Titanic is a sad movie too, one of the saddest by far, but this one has just left a something in me. The same thing happens to everyone. As we grow up, we get rid of things from our childhood. It just reminded me of myself a long time ago, playing with my toys, being a happy child and now I am leaving for college as Andy, and thus we are both leaving our memories behind us.

I'm not one to cry over movies, in fact I've only cried once and almost broke out in tears in two other movies. This was one of those times. The part I almost cried was when the toys were holding hands in the dumpster, just waiting to die. This was emotional for me, because I grew up with these characters as a kid. To watch them die would have been devastating.

Again, I love this one, but I wouldn't put it AFTER Old Yeller on the saddest. I would put Old Yeller on the saddest for the saddest Disney movie. But this one of the saddest sequels though. Possibly the saddest Disney sequel, at least for Pixar.

The final scene was so emotional I just cried. No other movie has ever made me cry, even Titanic. But when (SPOILER ALERT) Andy gives his toys to Bonnie, I just broke. Of all movies, I never thought that a Toy Story movie would make me cry. Damn you Pixar!

15 Old Yeller Old Yeller Product Image

I think for Disney, this should be the saddest Disney movie. The reason it's sadder than Toy Story 3 and Up is because of the ending. You know what happens if you've seen the movie, or even heard of it. Other people have said it so I shouldn't have to say it.

The ending is just so sad. can't be topped. I'll give titanic props for being almost if not just as sad, but I love dogs. and I grew extremely attached to Yeller by the end. I could also hardly sit through this movie without getting misty-eyed.

I remember I saw this movie when I was a kid and I ran to my room and bawled. I was depressed the next day too. It's also the first time a movie made me cry. I read the book later on at school and cried. RIP old yeller

Obviously few of you voting have seen this movie. If you had, it would definitely be near the top. Also Where the Red Fern Grows.

16 I Am Legend I Am Legend Product Image

I have to admit, it was sad, but in my opinion, the book was sadder, because *spoilers* the dog, of course, dies, like in the movie, but he dies as well. He dies in the movie, but in the movie there are other people, as he finds out, but in the book, there are no other people. He is completely alone, and the writing makes it even more bleak. He is betrayed in the end, by a vampire who he falls in love with who is pretending to be a human, and executed in a new vampire society.

The movie is sad, I'll admit, and I cried when the dog died, and the touching moment when he had to say goodbye to his family and they ended up dying, but the book portrays more of an empty sorrow. All in all, I'm voting for the movie because it was pretty sad.

I admit that prior to being diagnosed bipolar II, this 30 yr old male could cry and did cry at most of the sad parts in movies. That stopped once I started taking my medications. However, watching I am Legend, even while taking my meds, I started tearing up the moment it showed Sam limping and slump over. Will Smith's genuine reaction of hopelessness and grief was hard to watch and both Neville (Will) and the audience knows what is going to happen. By the time Will Smith knelt down on the floor with his dog and only dying friend in his arms, tears were flowing uncontrollably down my face. I I don't know what was saddest for me,... The part where the virus took over Sam and Neville had to choke her to death as he cried... Or the solemn, post burial SUV ride where we see a distraught Neville slightly glance over at the empty seat where Sam had always been. Then we see him begging the female mannequin to "please talk to me" after and break down into tears. All that trauma and it all ...more

Such pain and such hope in one person. Robert Neville loneliness and compassion can buoy any of us through the roughest of times. When Anna and Ethan show up, the following morning defines bittersweet as they attempt to form a family on the fly, yet the doom that follows crushes the soul. Anna, though, picking up the heroic baton,soothes the conscience in the end. Her monologue still haunts...

Walking away from his family watching as they leve in a helicopter a zombie smashes it on the ground. As the one of the only people in New York City with zombies everywhere is devastating. Killing the only thing close to him now his dog as it turns into a zombie is very sad. I have to say this is the saddest movie ever

17 Life Is Beautiful Life Is Beautiful Product Image

Reading these comments made me cry again. By a mile the saddest movie I've ever seen. The second time I watched it I had to pause it because I was crying to much I couldn't breathe. But not only the saddest movie ever for me it is also the greatest love story of all time, with both his love for his son and for his wife.

If we weren't in class while watching it, I would have been bawling and tears would have been flowing like rain. But I did watch it in class, so only a few tears happened.

Joshua's (I forgot his original name- we watched it with subtitles) face when he sees the tank. He is just so full of wonder, and joy, and I just can't.

When my father first showed me this film, I was 11 years old, and not 30 seconds earlier, he had just shown me the film Stand by Me. It was the very first movie that made me cry that was not named The Iron Giant or Up. To this day, Life is Beautiful remains one of the greatest films I have ever seen.

I watched this film for the first time yesterday, and all my friends had told me how sad but beautiful it was, so I was expecting tears. I did not expect my heart to swell and to be sobbing, but at the same time smile behind me tears. Robert Benigni created a tragic masterpiece.

The fox and the hound also known as Copper and Todd , these two start out as best friends ,eventually they go on their sperate ways then things change when they grow up .

This movie is about friendship, Loyalty , bravery and overcoming obsticles along the way..The fox and the hound is my all time favorite and this movie has wonderful humor as well. This movie is a must watch

The sad song is my favorite song: Goodbye May Seem Forever. My favorite song and my favorite film! I'm not joking you, it actually is my very favorite song now. For years, it was Once Upon a Time in New York City from Oliver & Company. Also, about the song. It's the song from the scene where Tod (the fox) is left in the woods. The old woman (Widow Tweed) left him there to protect him from the hunter (Amos Slade). The message of this song is perhaps the best thing about the whole movie. Even when we can't be with the people we care about, we never have to forget them. It's a message that almost everyone needs to know, because we all have those times in life when friends or loved ones die, or we just can't be with people anymore. Over the years I've lost some many things, so more and more I remember these words whenever I lose something or someone important.

To tell you the truth. This movie was really said to me. In elementary we were watching this movie and it made me really sad. The part that made me sad was when the lady dropped off the poor fox in the forest. This movie was one of my favorites, really sad for me. In class most of the people were tearing up. I could never forget these kind of movies. It's like my childhood and still is.

I just watched this and to be honest: my make up is all over my face and I can't even talk or breath. First time that I watched it since I was 5 or so and didn't remember much of it. I haven't cried this much in a year, oh god. All these kind of animal stories make me emotional like a pregnant woman.

19 West Side Story West Side Story Product Image

I was a freshman in high school when I got cast as Maria in our production of West Side Story. I didn't know the story that well but it being a Romeo and Juliet based story with rival gangs but I cried so hard in the end when everyone was fighting and dying

I was crying so much that I used up a whole tissue box. It's really sad when Tony dies trying to look for Maria.

It's so romantic and sad! It's my favorite movie ever and I cry every time!

20 The Elephant Man The Elephant Man Product Image

From the begining to the end of this movie I seriously did nothing but cry. I was a mess and I cried for days. This movie isn't sad because he died at the end. It was sad because of ho awfully they treated him. Humans are sick. That's how sad this movie was.

This film is heartbreaking! It doesn't involve a love story or a revenge story, it's just about one unfortunate man who wants to be accepted in society. John Hurts performance was outstanding here.

I had to keep pausing this movie because I couldn't hear it over the sound of my crying. It's sad at first because of how badly they treat the Elephant Man. But then when you learn that the Elephant Man is a very intelligent, sensitive man U realize he's been fully aware of everyone's cruelty, and it becomes 10 times sadder.

This movie has been one of my favorites for many years. A favorite because of how it made me feel. This is a movie that truly hits you deep inside. I saw it when it came out and it still has an effect on me.

21 My Girl My Girl Product Image

I'm 11, and watched this by myself. I went to my moms room and said nothing sad had been happening yet, she said just wait. 15 minutes later I come in weeping. Next day I made my friend watch it. She cried and I cried with her. I don't know why, but I keep watching it and crying. I think it's my favorite movie, but the saddest, other than Steel Magnolias. I'm literally crying now thinking about it...

This is an amazing movie. The fact that he cared enough to get the ring. It is truly heart breaking. I watched it over and over again and every time it gets me depressed for the rest of the day. I love this movie but every time I feel my heart ripping into shreds as someone is stomping on it. (If that makes since)

I first saw this movie, the part where the boy dies is so sad. I saw this on T.V. and I really felt bad about the boy who got stung by the bees because I think he might have been allergic to bees. I am so sorry about the death of the boy, it is sad.

This is the saddest movie I have ever seen. When she goes to his funeral and says he needs his glasses, I just couldn't stop crying. The fact that he went back to get her ring, that made it even harder to stop crying.

22 The Pursuit of Happyness The Pursuit of Happyness Product Image

! I Love this movie but it hit too close to home with my father! I paused this movie about a hundred times trying to catch my breathe I cried so hard I just couldn't control it! I love whoever wrote this it caught raw emotion it griped my by the heart and didn't let go, just thinking about it makes me want to cry as I am typing this. I was so happy for him at the end that I stood up in my living room face full of tears and clapped and cheered with joy laugh out loud. I just love this movie and will watch it all the way through again when I have a box full of tissues, and my boyfriend lends his shoulder to cry on!

Probably the saddest but most beautiful movie I have ever seen. Will never fails to impress in every movie/T.V. show/anything he has ever been in. Most accurate assumption as to what happiness really is. This movie blows away every movie in front of it. Should be number one in my opinion.

This movie help me to understand what the life is all about. We would not lose our hope when we rare in bad time..
I loved the last scene which he got a job after a long struggle because this is what the situation I am currently facing...

I saw a room full of guys crying while watching this movie. I saw it after and the saddest part I think it was when the guy was lying to his kid they were in a cave when they were really sleeping in a public bathroom...

23 E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial Product Image

I see this one every now and then with grandma. Very good and sad. Funny that it's before Bambi though. Also, shouldn't The Lion King be higher? I would say that The Lion King is as sad as Bambi, for the same reason. You should know why.

This was the first film I ever watched as a six year od and the saddest movie in the world! I did not go to a concert for it because they were also showing a movie. this was the on;y list on this besides top ten actors that is accurate! BUT this should be #1!

This movie made me cry when I watched it but I never cried at the titanic it's so funny that I never cried at the titanic. Titanic it's a very sad movie

Never understood why people found this sad, I find it a terribly ordinary film which did not affect me in any way.

24 A.I. - Artificial Intelligence A.I. - Artificial Intelligence Product Image

Just a sad story about a boy who is not a boy and is programmed to love his mother who loves him enough to save his life, but not enough to make a stand for him. Then to wait for thousands of years, for one moment- one wish-- it is so bitter sweet, but so extremely sad. I probably project too much of my own experience to be objective, so well done Steven! I have only been able to watch it the one time.

As I scrolled down the list I was wondering if that wonderful movie speilberg made with that masterfully directed ending (spending one last day with his deceased mother) would make the list. The ending with the breath-takingingly score john williams leaves one deeply moved for some time afterwards. That kind of effect on its viewers I feel is what truly is movie magic!

This movie was so amazing! The story of Pinocchio just a little different. It was so touching to see all of the things that he went through just to see his mother one last time! Love it and will never forget it. I cried like a baby at the end! This should DEFINITELY be in the top ten!

I sobbed uncontrollably... The most tragic and touching film ever made. Also, the most orignial story plot that actually has a plausible explaination for how our civilzation might end someday. Haley Joel Osment was not only an adorable child/robot in the movie, but he's possibly the greatest child actor we've ever seen.A.I. should have been in the top ten, if not number one!

25 Bambi Bambi Product Image

Bambi is a wonderful movie to watch with family and friends . this is my favorite movie I did feel bad for Bambi when he lost his mother but this turns out to be a wonderful must watch with great humor too. my personal favorite is Friend Owl because he has great humor when he teaches bambi I and his forest friends about how it feels in love.

Mom gets shot in front of him as a toddler! Forrest fire kills all wild life! Bambis dad gets shot in front of him as an adolescent! He and his mom almost starve to death during the winter! What worse could happen to perhaps the most innocent being on the planet?
Indeed, brings rivers of tears to even huntsmen and mercenaries.

My second favorite Disney movie next to The Fox and the Hound. Also my former favorite. It was my childhood along with One Hundred and One Dalmatians (my first former favorite by the way).

The death of Bambi's mom is one of the saddest moments in film history, other than that it is just a charming movie about growing up in the wood. The Fox and the Hound should be here.
