Most moving movie deaths

  1. Forrest Gump: When Jenny dies (You died on a Saturday morning. And I had you placed here under our tree. Mama always said that dyin' was a part of life. I sure wish it wasn't…)
  2. City of Angels: When Maggie dies (When they ask me what I liked the best, I'll tell them it was you…). So moving because of the whole situation: He becomes mortal for her and then she dies
  3. Little Women: When Betty dies (I love being home. But I don't like being left behind. Now I'm the one going ahead. I am not afraid. I can be brave like you. But I know I shall be homesick for you - even in heaven.)
  4. Vanilla Sky: When David remembers that he "died" (I signed a contract with you and then… I remember. Somebody died….It was me! - You were missed, David. It was Sofia who never fully recovered. It was she who somehow knew you best.)
  5. Interview with the Vampire: When Claudia died (So a vampire can cry? - Once, maybe twice in his own eternity…I go on, night after night. But all my passion went with her golden hair.)
  6. My girl, definitely MOST MOVING EVER: Thomas J.'s funeral (You wanna go tree-climbing, Thomas J.? His face hurts! And where's his glasses? He can't see without his glasses. Put on his glasses! He was gonna be an acrobat!)
  7. Fellowship of the Ring: When Boromir dies (Our people…I would have followed you, my brother. My captain. My king. - Be at peace…son of Gondor.)
  8. The two Towers: Theoden mourning for his son (No parent should have to bury their child…)
  9. The sixth sense: When Malcolm realizes he's dead (I miss you. - I miss you too. - Why, Malcolm? - What? What is it? - Why did you leave me?) So moving because it came so surprisingly.
  10. The Cure: When they pretend that Dexter died for fun, but then he really dies. Also very moving when he puts his shoe in his hands…
  11. The Green Mile: John Coffey's execution (He kill 'em with they love. That's how it is ever' day. All over the worl'…)

This list has no order and is not really complete yet. I just thought about which movie deaths made me cry and these are the ones that came to my mind...

I think I've seen parts of it. Is it the one with Björk, being in prison at the end? Because that one was heartbreaking!

Frankly, I was shocked by City of Angels, since it didn't happen that way in the original. Saaaaaaaad. I don't think I ever got over it during the rest of the movie.

i agree that death in my girl is very moving.

I know some 'tough guys' who cried during that funeral scene ;-) It seems to affect almost everyone.
