Live Poll: Most Touching Movie Scenes

There are some heartbreaking but at the same time beautiful movie scenes that make you almost burst into tears... connected to that are some incredible songs that provoke this bittersweet emotion. This connection is powerful and can make you automatically remember this scene when you listen to the song. Which one of these movie scenes is more touching for you?

 I'm not sure that there is one. I use to have the DVD but haven't seen it in years. Good luck finding it; it's a tear jerker! (The other 8 segments range from pretty good to dull.)

The time index is = 1:20:50 and runs 9 minutes through 1:29:45 . This movie was made in 9 scenes; each filmed as a continuous and uninterrupted  take, the longest being over 22 minutes long.' Maggiie's Story' is the last scene.

Nice list.

I would change this:

"This conjuction it's powerful and can make you aumotically remember this scene when you listen the song."

to

"This connection is powerful and can make you automatically remember this scene when you listen to the song."

This is great, Jose! May I suggest one small edit? (below in bold - 'just added two commas)

There are some heartbreaking but, at the same time, beautiful movie scenes that make you almost burst into tears...

They're all good but I think I'd go with the hiring scene in 'Pursuit of Happiness.' Tough choice, though.

FYC:

The "you're my best friend" scene from 'The Florida Project') 2017
photo: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5649144/mediaviewer/rm213210624
(There's a whole lot more emotion than "you're my best friend" going on in this scene but people who have seen it will know that, while that quote doesn't contain any spoilers for those who haven't seen it.)

FYC:

From 'Schindler's List:' The "I didn't do enough!" scene  ("If I'd made more money... I threw away so much money. You have no idea. If I'd just...") photo: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108052/mediaviewer/rm302384896

From 'Kramer vs. Kramer:' The "Where will I sleep?" scene - photo: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079417/mediaviewer/rm4231842816

From 'The Pianist:' The scene when Wladyslaw Szpilman plays the piano for the Nazi officer who has been bringing him bread. There's not an image already on IMDb of him playing the piano in that scene, in his dirty and sick condition, but I uploaded two. In the meantime, there's this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0253474/mediaviewer/rm287739648

I know your poll isn't about tear-jerkers, exactly, but this website has tons of ideas and a few might fit well: http://www.filmsite.org/tearjerkers1.html

I included 2 of your 4 suggestions. I selected these two because i really liked it this scenes, i haven't saw Kramer vs Kramer, so i tried to found a video of the scene that you suggested and was emotional... the schindler's list i've saw the movie i long time ago, but yeah that scene was emotional too. Great Suggestions.

I tried to find a video of this Florida Project scene, but I did not find it and would be really useful if there was a video.


Thanks for your contribution and for corrected the text ;)

I doubt that a video is available for that scene because it would be such a huge spoiler and the distributor has been pretty proprietary about a few scenes, in particular, including this one. I found two videos on youtube that sort of shows the scene but, in both, someone is speaking over it, analyzing the film. It shows a bit of the scene but you don't see all of it and can't hear any of it. It wouldn't just be a huge spoiler, which both youtube videos include, it would spoil the emotional impact of that scene because one of the reasons that scene is so poignant is because you don't see it coming, even though in retrospect, it seems unavoidable, but the moment just knocks the wind out of the audience: there we are, watching these adorable children prance around, bringing us along as we see their world with their innocence. We are spellbindingly viewing the adults and adult world in an enjoyable kind of half-trance, soaking in the vivid color of the cinematography, incredible performances, and energy of the children's joy, and then, boom - the whole film's weight lands on us in an unexpected moment of the pure expression of pain of a most carefree, joyous child. And that child is so overcome with grief that she barely speaks - and we don't need her to; we know exactly what she is feeling and why and it is too big for us adults. A critic from Buzzfeed said that the movie "concludes with a touch of poetry that might break you in two." 

I can't say it any better than that, especially at a few hours after my bedtime, lol. If you're interested, here's the movie's website. http://floridaproject.movie Albstein called my constant talk of this movie on the GS poll board for several months a "campaign," lol, which resulted in two other poll authors seeing the film, rarely seen at that point, and putting it on their list of the top five films of 2017, so I dare say that I can't imagine you'd be disappointed, even if you just watch the trailer and take a peek into this magical world that I feel so privileged to have seen. :)

Bravo on your great - and now live! - poll.

For what you said and the way you said I can believe that is a great movie, I don't know when I' gonna watch but I one day I will see it.
Because the movie released last year it's like kind impossible to find a video but I guess in the end of this year will be available certain scenes.
I appreciated your contribution and I recnognized that.

Thanks ☺️
