If love movies were to be classified into just two kinds, one would be the happy kind (usually referred to as rom-coms) and another the sad kind. We know the happy kind of romantic films make more money at the box office but if you look back in the past, you would find that it is the sad kind of romantic films that you remember more fondly. These movies make you ugly cry. So, we thought why not put a list of sad love films. The films that leave you with a lump in the throat when they end. Here is the list of top sad and heartbreaking love stories in movies that make you ugly cry. You can watch some of these best heartbreaking movies on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube or Amazon Prime.
10. The Fault in Our Stars (2014)
Talk about a movie that makes you ugly cry. The story of two terminally ill adolescents who fall in love with each other could have gone anywhere, mostly in wrong places, but Shailene Woodley ensures that the heart of the film remains at where it’s supposed to — as imagined by Green and the screenwriters. It rarely happens that a film so intentionally sentimental actually achieves its purpose. It will be difficult to hold on to your tears as you watch the film. Let it flow.
9. Once (2007)
Set in Dublin, ‘Once’ tells us about a repairman, who has been waiting for his break in music industry, and a female immigrant, who earns by selling flowers, collaborating together to live their dreams of making it big in music and how they slowly fall in love for each other. The film does not even name its characters, still gives us a piece which is too magical — and painful — to be forgotten. Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová are superb as the lead pair and John Carney makes a film for which Ireland will be remembered by many.
