The Chinese film 'Suddenly 17'.
I know it's really goofy and a lot of the time I don't like the soundtrack, but the message is just really sweet and comes from a genuine place. Also the ending is hopeful and just reminds me--that will never be me. She doesn't end up with any guy, instead reclaims herself and her confidence.

i'm a sucker for animals, so any movie ever made where the animal dies/ is injured.
But if we're pointing fingers... War Horse would be in the top 3; I'm a wreck within the first 5 minutes every time.

The original King Kong made me cry when the main protagonist gets machine gunned at the end, i was about ten years old. I remember crying at the end of Into The Wild about ten years ago, to the utter shock of the person i was with, me included. I just couldn't stop for about half an hour. A frightful scene, it was at a cinema in Brussels. What is it about that film..

The first movie that came to mind was also Hachi. I never cry when watching movies but this one made me really emotional :(

Several movies throughout the years have made me cry. I think the first one to do so was Somewhere in Time. I just tear up when Christopher Reeve's character wills himself to die after being forced to return to 1980 and is reunited in the afterlife with his beloved from 1912, played by Jane Seymour:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somewhere_in_Time_(film)

Richard awakens back in 1980, in the same room, 416, where he and Elise passionately made love in 1912. He is drenched in sweat and very weak, apparently exhausted from his trip through time and back. He scrambles desperately back to his own room, 313, which he had previously cleared of 1980 furniture and objects, and tries to hypnotize himself again, without success. Heartbroken, after wandering the hotel property and sitting interminably at the places where he spent time with Elise, he eventually retires to his room. He remains there unmoving for days until discovered by Arthur and the hotel manager, who send for a doctor and paramedics. Richard takes a final breath, suddenly smiles, and sees himself drifting above his body. Having presumably died of a broken heart, he is drawn to a light shining through the nearby window, where he is reunited with Elise, who had died eight years prior on the very night she gave him the pocket watch.​

Was it when the old guy who'd lost his family in a car crash asked the kid if he could adopt him as they were sitting in the car and he refused? I have watched a million films but that's one scene that's imprinted in my memory forever. Who the fuck was the actor who played the old man, that's one of the most amazing film performances i have ever seen. How did you manage to suck that up.

Me too, it's coming back to me now. I remember the scenes when he killed the buffalo or whatever it was and it got infested with maggots before he had time to bury and conserve it. My god, what a film that is. Don't get me started, what a miracle of a film. Youtube isn't showing it. Just the trailer. The scenes with the old man are so beautiful.

If you have the chance then do it, the hardest part is the first step and then life carries you along, i promise you. I've done a few things that shit scared me setting off but every time it's been the best times of my life. You need to get to the point where you just don't give a fuck, which sounds like now. I always needed to have an objective, i don't know like a point to aim for instead of wandering about aimlessly, be it hitching or biking or whatever. It has to become a kind of pilgrimage. I don't know what your situation is, if you're free to just leave. I've done trips to the himalayas and cycling all over europe sleeping in fields and each time it's getting over the fear, man. You will be amazed what you can deal with, how resilient you are. It comes back to the usual shit in the end but you'll have a great time in between, even if it half kills you.

@406blue

just rewatched it

absolutely masterpiece

and i finally understood the ending - when i watch in the late 00 i was a teen and i focused on the super tramp career. i admired him for living the life he wanted. but i totally didnt get the ending or forget about it.

now in my late tweenties i finally understood it...


what is it that makes humans in their teens/early tweenties so arrogant? like everyone in that age think he is super special, figured everything out, knows everything better. whether thats politics, human interaction oder the general worldview. black and white thinking everywhere. you just have not the ability to really question yourself and your beliefs at that age
