A soggy subject..

Good morning all... I hope you slept well and have had your bowl of porridge!
In reference to one of my newly discovered and fave blogs... Katherine's Dream..
I just wanted to say.. The Notebook has to be one of the best cries I have had for a while.. I love sad films.. Far From the Madding Crowd was my first when my parents took me to see it and I cried silently in the car all the way home.. Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources .. nearly broke my heart! The Railway Children... seen it dozens of times and it still cracks me up!.. Love Actually.. just the opening scenes with people hugging and greeting each other..Birth with Nicole Kidman... Sense & Sensibility.. Anything about unrequited love or lost love...
I am not prone to bursting into tears at the drop of a hat.. but other people's loss, lives, loves can really stir my emotions..
I would love to hear from those of you who like soggy hanky films..

Hi there!Yes, there are alot of films and other things that set me off. The latest being the original snow white film a couple of days ago!! I'm a big blubberer, I like to think it's good for the soul :)Yes, Cleo's work is amazing, most of my friends have one of her pieces, I hope one day too...Best Wishes from Annie x

Bridges of Madison county gets me every time, especially where she is sitting in the truck with her hand on the door handle and sees Clint's truck driving away. It's the beautiful music that accompanies it too.

Hi Michele,
Have you seen Crush?
This is another fav of mine and my girls.....we love to cuddle up on the sofa on a rotten day, watch it and just cry!
PS It was made in the north Cotswolds an area I love, and the houses that they filmed in are nice too

Oh So Vintage.. You are spot on with Bridges of Madison County.. The exact point of the film where I started sobbing was when she is so close to opening the door but the traffic lights change and her future didn't!
