Xx :'(
Did anyone forget that sad scene cause I sure didn't.
I cried a lot when I watched it..
It is the saddest, I cried since the beginning.. I'm easily touched, but this movie just touched me from the start till the very end! :') sad and inspirational!
People if you haven't watched this movie, I suggest you give it a try.. A very touching movie.
The first time I watched it and Christine kissed the Phantom I completedly cried my eyes out. Although I totally agree when the Phantom says "Christine, I love you. " I was just soaked in my tears and I had dreams about it so saddening me for the next three weeks.
Especially the Phantom's "Christine, I love you. "
Makes me cry :(
The great story about the man who really existed. I'm crying every time I watch it!

Very sad what is going on in Juarez. Please watch this movie.
My older sister had just gone though breast cancer, wow great movie
Meryl Streep gives one of her best performances as a mother stricken with cancer and her dealing with her family in her final days. This is based on a true story. Just heartbreaking.
to star crosslovers, the end rips you heartout
I am a alpha male... with a spirtual side
cried like a baby when clint mansell began playing the last man.
couldnt take it, I love life, what an amazing ting
This movie is like concentrated sadness of 90 minutes and it shows perfectly someones emotions when you're about to lose someone that you love and the absolute sadness when you're actually losing him/her. It shows how a man does everything possible to reunite with his loved one even giving his life, because "death is the road to awe".
Sums up the feeling of losing someone so perfectly. Accompanied with an incredible soundtrack that captures every mood perfectly, this film is truly art as opposed to entertainment. An emotionally fulfilling experience.More comments about The Fountain
I had shut this movie out of my mind. It was too... too much to take
What makes it so sad, is that some people might have to do something like this to get help for thier kids.
How is john q this high seriously. This is sad movie about parent that is going to lose the most important thing, and would do anything to save them. Any real parent would understand the pure emotions behind this
I'm not gonna burry my son. My son is gonna burry me! - best part of the whole movie
This movie grew sadder and sadder until the ending where it was so unbearably sad it almost hurt.
I absolutely love this film. It makes me want to make movies like this. If you haven't. Seen it you should.
Only true romantics, the one's who've really lived it, will understand the reasons this movie is the saddest movie of all time.More comments about Vanilla Sky
Beautiful, sensual and desperately melancholic. It is incredibly rare to find a film like Atonement made by people who, at the exact same moment in time, are at the height of their power and crafts. A sheer pleasure to watch and a masterpiece of storytelling.
Oh yeah, I cried on this one. My mom had just died in 2002, and I took a line from near the end of the movie to be read at her funeral. I couldn't do it myself, I had lost my voice.

very sad movie two main characters die Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes
True love live eventhough they died... Its the original love story ever! Welldone william shakespears!
I was bawling like a little baby at the end the fist time I even cried at a kite flying scene also
OMG... maybe not the saddest film ever but it does make you think
Best movie ever, the love they have for eachother is something so pure and the fact that the movie has an sad ending its so annoying.. Is one of those movies you wish you could step into the screen and make things better
Probably not the saddest but just imagine losing 5 of your best friends, all in one night
oh absolutely, me too. I'm seriously troubled by stories of simian exploitation, so yes this one is very sad, you see my grandma used to work at a monkey sanctuary when I was a kid so I know about these things. Very sad- watch if you want to drown in monkey-sadness tears.
The big monkey always sets me off. Boohoo.
I cried so much. a little girl with so much love and generousity left alone in the world, in a world she was so giving in only showed her cruelity, suffering and heartlessness back. all because they were jealous she was the richest beforehand. ALL GIRLS ARE PRINCESSES. fullstop. beautiful movie.
"I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young. They're still princesses. All of us. Didn't your father ever tell you that? Didn't he? "
Donnie Dying Mad World - Gary Jules = Sadness :'(
I've never cried at a movie but here I came closer than when I saw Titanic (which I think is slightly overrated)
Not only the saddest but it is the best movie of all time. There is one movie that might compare in sadness and that is the pianist but I don't see it on this list.More comments about Donnie Darko
" I know now why you cry" When T2 selflessly ^^ stoically lowered himself into the molten steel...
I know I cried when I saw that the first time too. I was about 9
The ending scene when arnie puts his thumb up to john connor as he is melting in lava is a tear jerker
The saddest movie ever..
It's about five friends. One of them is a vampire. In the end all of them are gonna die.
Gackt as Sho
HYDE as Kei
Oh my god, I cry at every Wes Anderson film. They should all be on here, seriously. Especially The Royal Tenenbaums.
Tell me I'm not the only one who blubbers my heart out every time I watch this? I've killed so many trees in tissues because of this movie haha
I cried during the funeral scene, and the scene where Mimi almost dies.
This is the only movie to make me cry (possibly its because its one of the only good things my home states done in a long time)
P.S.A.I. was one of the most stupid movies I have ever seen.
I challenge anyone to watch this movie. If you combine all the movies on this list it will still fall short of the sadness caused by Dear Zachary. It is life alteringly depressing. View at your own risk
Titanic... Really. Although this is a documentary, Dear Zachary is the saddest movie I have ever seen. The depth of despair you will experience is something that no other movie has been able to do for me. Requiem for a Dream is another one that grips you tight and wont let go but it has nothing on Dear Zachary. Watch at your own risk
I have never seen such a movie with so much suffering in it, a must see for anyone that has a heart. I do agree that you should be warned going in to this, that this movie is without a doubt the saddest movie I have ever seen.
Finally I found it! Can;t believe it's number 213. I think it's definitely one of the top 10 saddest, certainly higher than 213! A dying kid?!?! The part with he shoe? Come on!
I don't cry in movies and I was still crying 1 hour after it was done the ultimate friendship movie
I cried from the moment the two towers went down to the end of the credits. it was so sad. until I watched the movie I din't really get how bad 9/11 was but this movie not only changed my thoughts about 9/11 it changed me forever. the saddest movie I ever saw. a close second would be forrest gump or toy story 3. but this one made me cry 10 times more then them
Just a reminder how bad that day was on September 11 2001. One of the saddest scenes was watching the guy falling from one of the towers.
really sad. I love the song at the end with the photo! one of those endings where you just have to know what happens to them after the end.
I been trying to look at the title of the movie.. This is a very good sad movie it made me cry so much
Gregory Peck, Ava GARDNER - A nuclear war has happened - an American submarine comes into Australia - gradually the fallout winds drift to southern hemisphere and people get sick & die - then people see the end and start to plan their own deaths - no one survives - gregory peck & sub returns to us to die at home. Damn this movie rips your heart out. It is so sad!
We watched this as a family... All of us were convulsing with sadness. This movie is horrifically sad. I can't even listen to the song anymore... Not joking. Sad Sad Super sad. I hate it.
WHY IS THIS DOWN AT 147?! Hate it when Frank cries D':
There wasn't a dry eye in the theater!
While more on the contemporary side (the 1970's made the best of the saddest), I was thoroughly pulled into this movie. Very emotional!
As much as it is a Japanese comedy and all, a lot of my male friends cried out loud while watching this movie. The way a mere nerd can fall in love with a female cyborg was so beautiful. And it was heart breaking when she sacrificed herself for him because she is starting to know what love is.
