Heartwarming / Red Dawn (1984)

  • Toward the end, as Jed is carrying his wounded brother over his shoulder, Colonel Bella walks up with his gun ready... and lets them go.
  • Another heartwarming scene occurs shortly before that when Colonel Bella is writing a letter to his wife back home.
    Colonel Bella: I can't remember what it was to be warm. It seems a thousand years since I was a small boy in the sun. How did I come to this high, desolate place where there is nothing but loneliness? So much is lost. I want to look into your eyes and forget. It all seems so far away: a warm house where my shadow never falls, your long, black hair in my hands. There is no more revolution; only you to come back to. I will post my resignation.
