Grab a tissue… or five, because you are about to cry like hell even if you have a strong heart. In this blog, I create a list of saddest movies that will make you sad. Movies like “Life is beautiful”, “The boy in the striped Pajamas” start as very comedy or normal family story and then turn into a movie on the holocaust. This situation pretty resembles our life also, we have our amazing moments and then we have our horrible ones.

Also, some movies are so depressing that you won’t help yourself not to cry, your tears will automatically roll down over your cheeks. Movies like “Requiem for a Dream”, “Grave of the fireflies” are one of these types, these are the movies that after you saw one of them your mind will feel up with lots of sorrow and with bittersweet emotions. We listed some of the best sorrow or saddest movie which may be a Hollywood or a foreign movie all over the world.
