    AW: Re: Movies that made you cry

    As a child:

    Vittorio de Sica's "Ladri di biciclette" ("Bicycle Thieves") (Italy, 1948), a milestone of neorealism, based on a story by Luigi Bartolini.




    In post-World War II Italy poverty is a dire reality for a large portion of the population. Work is scarce and the opportunities for employment are few and far between. "Ladri Di Biciclette" (translated "The Bicycle Thief") is quietly one of the finest films ever produced. It follows one economically distraught man (Lamberto Maggiorani) who is heading down a desperate path fast. Things look up when he gets a job putting posters on walls in town, but he must sell what few meager possessions he and his family have to buy a bicycle to uphold his end of the business bargain. Naturally tragedy strikes immediately as the title character shows up the very first day Maggiorani is on the job. The police are little help, believing the bicycle is not as important as it really is. Thus Maggiorani and young son Enzo Staiola take it upon themselves to look all over town to try and find the bicycle and bring the thief to justice. "The Bicycle Thief" was originally released in 1948 and won an Honorary Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film the following year (the movie was not released in the U.S. until 1949). It is still a production that strikes deep even today. The lengths and desperate measures that some go through is very evident here. Director Vittorio De Sica crafts a film that is much deeper than it appears on the surface. It examines the human condition and questions society, family, law enforcement, alliances and mental anguish perfectly. "The Bicycle Thief" is an excellent production that has aged well and allows the viewer to think about many subjects that go beyond ordinary cinematic depths. 5 stars out of 5.

    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Re : Movies that made you cry

    I don't think I've ever wept like a floorcloth watching a movie. Boys don't cry.

    However...

    Schindler's List
    The Pianist

    ... and many other testimonies of suffering...

    No, in the patriot you have a scene at the beach in which his youngest daughter cries; "daddy don't leave, ill say whatever you want" imo one of the most beautiful movie scenes i ever saw.

    Re: Movies that made you cry

    Few films have ever been real enough to me to move me to tears. One which I found deeply moving enough to, though, is "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" with Lon Chaney, around 1925. It's a silent, of course, but as Gloria Swanson said, "We had faces, then." Ah, didn't they, though ? Another tear-jerker of the same period is "Greed" with Zasu Pitts, Gibson Gowland, and Jean Hersholt, 1923.

    Re: Movies that made you cry

    I have never taken movies seriously. Instead what has once made me cry was a reading of the Book by Khalid Hosseini-The Kite Runner. The protagonist, though whom Hosseini narrates the story, left his land, where he had several obligations and a past-basically his roots. He lost them, that to me was the greatest sorrow for a man, because once out of one's roots, there isn't any life, a plant sticks to its roots in its lifetime, elsewhere it is firewood.
