I am not a very emotional person usually. and most films fail to get that emotion from me.Mostly the supposed emotional scenes (especially in hindi films) usually make me laugh 😀 . however there are moments in my movie watching experience where i have gotten overwhelmed with emotion. When i say scenes that make you “cry”, it doesnt mean literally ,it means scenes that have you emotional or lump in throat or a scene that moves you deeply. Also it is not necessary that only a death or a tragic scene can make one emotional. Let me tell you i get emotional even watching some fight scenes! 😀 or say the training scene of rocky in rocky 3.because i get overwhelmed by the impact of the scene.
Here i present my top fav scenes that make me emotional each time i see them:
Brooks Was Here – The Shawshank Redemption
Mostly in films,they show a guy spends his time in jail and comes back and is back to normal life.Good enough in fairy tales.But here you get to see the real deal. there is a dialogue in the film “when they gave you life imprisonment, thats what they do,they take away your life without actually killing you.” this scene i am sure moves anyone that has seen it.
Batmans Sacrifice – The Dark Knight
Its not a death or tragic scene but just the philosophy and irony in it is deep. The difference between a real protector and a projected and fragile “hero”of society. Dialogues are epic.
Bridge scene Lee Woo-jin’s Last Moment – Oldboy
Its a very emotional yet disturbing scene. Emotional because the love is true and disturbing because its between a brother and a sister! But whatever be your moral value system, you cant help but react to this artistic scene.The BGM is extraordinary.
American Beauty Climax
Lester Burnham is also one of my fav screen characters in films.and i am sure everyone has atleast one common trait among his many.
