Podcast: Top 3 Heartbreaking Scenes

Podcast: Top 3 Heartbreaking Scenes

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we reviewed the awesome 12 Years A Slave, which literally left me speechless after seeing the film. It was incredibly gripping with some pretty raw and heartbreaking moments. So to bounce off of that for the show this week, we discussed our Top 3 Heartbreaking Scenes in film.

When you listen to the show, you’ll hear how I have a very personal connection with my number one. Finding a clip for the show was the hardest thing I’ve had to do since we started InSession Film. Yes, I know I’m an emotional guy, so it wasn’t very hard. While hard though, it was still a great Top 3 to do.

What are some heartbreaking moments in film that meant something to you? What would be your top 3? Here’s ours:


1) Marley & Me
2) Up
3) Earrings of Madam De


1) Bangkok Girl
2) Before Sunrise
3) Up


1) Requiem For A Dream
2) Vanilla Sky
3) Moon

Honorable Mentions (Combined)

500 Days of Summer, New Girl, Transformers 3 (no joke), Gran Tarino, The Road, ET, Schindler’s List,
Shoah, Gone With The Wind, The Mist, The Lion King, Bambi

    The end of The Thin Red Line with Sean Penn and Pretty much all of 21 Grams for me…

      The Thin Red Line is also a great choice. I haven’t seen 21 Grams yet so I may need to get familiar with that one. Thanks for the comment!

    Oh my God. Up had me crying within the first 10 minutes. Surprising and a record-breaker in my book. Can’t handle.

      Yeah it’s a great one for sure. I was the same way, it was too good to not put on this list.
