So, what films have made you cry in the past? Don't be shy, we're all human.

I don't mind admitting that the execution of John Coffey in The Green Mile had me blubbing, I'd had a few wines though.

Well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it ;o)

Mask, The story of Rocky Dennis.The end scene from An Officer & A Gentlemen and the end of A Few Good Men. Not exactly a crying moment but more of a lump in the throat thing.

A Very Long Engagement (Un long dimanche de fiançailles)
Pan's Labyrinth
The Orphanage

Also:
Most films with a score written by Thomas Newman.
(Green Mile, Shawshank, American Beauty, Meet Joe Black, Pay It Forward). I realise that the structure of the music is pure manipulation but that does not make it any less brilliant, or mean that I am immune to it's effects.

The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (French: Les Parapluies de Cherbourg)

Not films, but the news of yet another service-person's death in Afghanistan makes me weep. Puts alot of things in perspective too for me. There is always someone worse off than yourself.

About the only time I can recall a tear or two was when Hooch died in the film Turner and Hooch.

So very sad.

Until this happened to me the only film that got me crying was the end scene in Shane

The Ultimate Ninja. Cried with laughter, possibly the worst film I've ever seen.

Cant think of a film thats had that effect on me,
But the recent documentery about recovering the remains of those that fell at the battle of Fromelles very moving.

children being rejected and/or treated cruelly by adults brings a lump to my throat - I can't bear seeing desperate kids deprived of parental love, even in a film.

When I first read Oliver Twist - at the age of fifteen or so - I was deeply affected by the child abuse portrayed, and that seems to have stayed with me, It's the one thing that starts me off in a film.
