    Sad Movies

    I am just curious if anyone one else likes a good sad movie that makes you cry. I just finish watching 11 episodes of
    "Ichi Bitou No NamiIchi Bitou No Namida" (One Liter of tears) and found this to be the most powerful, emotional movie/series I have ever seen. My wife thinks I am nuts for watching these kind of movies, but I find them a wonderful way to escape and get my life back on track. So am I the only one or are there others out there that watch these and what movie did you find sad. My next movie to watch will be "10 promises to My Dog"

    Occasionally I like a good cry but would rather have a great laugh.

    Good cries are very cathartic. I always feel better after I watch "Beaches" and bawl my eyes out!!!

    Polly is a good movie if you want a 'happy' crying session. I love that parrot! I kind of don't like the very sad movies, but do like the ones you cry at because your happy.

    Hachi: A Dog's Tale http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1028532/ is a good, sad movie. Can probably catch it on Dish on the family movie channels.

    I watched Where The Red Fern Grows with my 10 year old son and he was mad at me for a week because it made him cry. (I cried too!)

    Fiddler on the Roof is one of the most emotional movies I've ever seen. I laugh, then cry, then laugh and cry. What a roller coaster! I think these are very good for emotional health - like everything else, if you don't use it, you lose it.

    Did you know that tears have different chemical composition between happy tears and sad tears?

    One of the best crying movies you can find is "All Mine To Give." with Cameron Mitchell and Glynnis Johns. First saw this when my dd was just a newborn. Was sitting in the living room nursing her when it came on and cried through an entire box of tissues by the end - Just a good old movie but be forewarned that it is a tearjerker.

    "Amish Grace"....every time that movie made me cry, I thought it couldn't get sadder, then it did...I cried through the entire move. It's based on the true story of the Amish children that were shot and killed in the schoolhouse in PA. a couple of years ago. I learned a lot about the Amish system of beliefs, and the lesson about forgiving is one we could all learn from.

    You are on the right track here. All of these are fabulous. The recent ins also, I liked the Angelina Jolie where she was trying to find her little boy. Wow, that was intense.

    The internet. I found "One Liter of Tears" on youtube. This is a Japanese Drama and there are many web sites dedicated to Asian dramas. They call them doramas and people rate them and have links to watch them. If you have a multi-region DVD player you can buy these movies on line at sites like i-Offer. If you want to watch some "uplifting" Christmas specials here are two; Silent Night, Lonely Night (1969) and "The Last Best Year" (1990) These are made for TV specials. Thank you all for responding.
