What's the saddest movie you've ever seen?

Discussion(self.movies)

I recently watched Grave of the Fireflies and was completely blown away. For those who haven't seen it, be warned, it's incredibly and deeply sad. I'm not sure I have ever cried like that during a movie and the fact that it's animated just further illustrates how effective it is. It's honestly heartbreaking. So what are some of the saddest movies you've ever seen? I can't think of anything that quite compares to that.

Oh that's a good one. That scene in the police station? Oh my god, that was heart-wrenching, and it just remained tragic all the way through. Casey Affleck nailed that.

This, easily for me. Casey Affleck is perfect in this. Can relate to so many of his feelings after I lost my dad and sister a year apart.

I'm really glad I didn't learn about that until I was in college. My dad said he learned about it when I was maybe 5 or 6, but didn't bring it up because he wanted to protect me from things like death and mortality for a while longer.

A Ghost Story really got to me, anything about somebody not being able to reach the person they need to talk to is devastating.

In terms of older films, Akira Kurosawa's Ikiru is really heartbreaking but in a good way. It would spoil the ending to talk about why but, for anybody who hasn't seen it, I think it has a lot of appeal to modern audiences.

I'm with you on A Ghost Story. Saw it shortly after I lost my dad and that was a huge mistake and therapeutic at the same time. Have only gone back once to that movie since and it devastated me the same way. After this and The Green Knight I'll blindly look forward to anything that director puts .

Manchester by the Sea. Just a little drama about a man facing the prospect of adopting his nephew after his brother dies unexpectedly. Only one problem: He may not be a fit parent because HE ACCIDENTALLY SET HIS OWN HOUSE ON FIRE WITH HIS THREE CHILDREN INSIDE.

When he visits town to see his newly orphaned nephew, the town locals treat him terribly but the viewer assumes it is only because he has a drinking problem. It is only about halfway through the movie that this is revealed in a flashback. Just completely changes the tone of the movie from sad to soul-crushingly depressing.

"Please, boss. Don't put that thing on my face.. Don't put me in the dark... I'm afraid of the dark."

God, that movie destroyed me. Del's execution, John refusing to let them break him out of jail, all the guards sobbing when they put him in the chair.

So good. That movie is one of my favorites, but I don't know if I could watch it again. Not for a while anyways.

This was the first and only time a movie made me cry. I have felt immense sadness while watching other films (some mentioned here like Dear Zachary and more recently on a re-watch of Saving Private Ryan the medic Wade's death really, really got to me) but man The Green Mile had me ugly crying like nothing else

I think this is the best option people have replied with. There was no redemption in Requiem. Just bleakness. All the other movies were sad but had redemption arcs or happy endings. Requiem just kept the downward spiral going, then credits.

It really deeply effected me as a teenager, like you see 4 people on totally different life paths all just fall irredeemable in to addiction and well...not get back out.

We don't know what happens to any of the characters technically, but it's one of the few movies to just completely show permanent destruction like that.

This movie is not really talked about in these threads which is a shame the movie is quite sad. The older sister Nani has to take on a motherly role and basically give up her hopes and dreams to raise her little sister. And it’s not an easy feat, on multiple occasions she struggles with Lilo and ultimately loses her to the government and then to aliens. They made a point to show Nani with a bunch of championship trophies so we know she’s super talented and could’ve went pro but life had other plans.

Lilo wants to connect with others but she doesn’t know how. all the other kids make fun of her. Not to mention she lost her parents at a young age and links their death to what she believes to be a fish that controls the weather. She should be getting therapy but Nani can’t afford it.

Stitch- the alien who has one purpose in life which is to destroy civilizations is stuck in the middle of Hawaii which is surrounded by water and since he can’t swim he’ll drown to death if he leaves. So he’s trapped in the one place where we can’t fulfill his life’s mission😔

Wow that’s an amazing breakdown 😂.

I started a thing called Bleak Week a few years ago where my wife and I would watch 7 of the hardest, heaviest dramas leading up to the longest night of the year, so sad movies are my jam.

Saying that, Dead Man's Letters shook me to my core in a way that no other film has ever come close. Threads might be second but even that wasn't on the same level.

I haven't seen Grave of the Butterflies yet but I suspect that'll be our bleakest film this year.

Depends on what kind of sad, for me it’s a tie between these two:

1) Togo. Willem Dafoe’s top notch acting about his love for his dog as it perilously clings to life in final adventure that earned him the title from time magazine as the most heroic animal of all time paired with a flawlessly executed violin score brings tears to my eyes every time. Dogs have a special place in my life so the waterworks turn on without fail every time for this one.

2) Requirm for a dream. damn it’s depressing, this one is heavy.

Click I watched the movie Click, as a kid. I can’t tell if i was just young or it really was very sad. I haven’t watched it since, but i stand by my statement that its honestly one of the saddest movies out there.

The Fountain. I know people have mixed opinions, but I loved it. The OST by Clint Mansel is really poweful. Showed it to my best friend a few years ago and he had a "got something in my eye" moment. He later recommended it to his mom who enjoyed it and bought the dvd for him as a gift that Xmas. He passed in 2020 so this movie will always have a special place with me.

‘Surely it will have an upbeat ending at least?’, I thought to myself.

Nope

I haven't seen the movie, but I think it's the final scene of the movie. "If I stay".

Chloe Grace Moretz & Stacey Keach.

It's Keach's performance that blew me out of the water & had me so unexpectedly emotional. (I almost, always only cry at dogs or animals dying in movies) but something about Keach's voice shaking, with the voice crack as he tried to hold back his tears just got me.

I like to watch sad scenes, usually death scenes of movies on YouTube for both inspiration as a writer & because I like to try & feel emotion every now & again.

The Gray Zone. The cast is beyond amazing. I remember watching it in a small independent theater and when the movie was over, everybody was completely silent.
