Tear Jerker: Cyrano de Bergerac
  • The letter scene in the convent. Between the letter itself, and Roxanne's reaction when she realizes that he couldn't possibly be reading it, that he knows it by heart even though he's supposedly never seen it before....it's a full-box-of-kleenex scene. Any production, any translation. It doesn't matter.
  • Christian's death. Made worse when you realize Roxanne is mourning the man she thought he was, rather than the man he actually was, so the only person who can properly remember him is Cyrano himself. Added to that is the fact that he was a genuinely good guy, who loved Roxanne enough to confess the whole ruse to her when he realized she might love Cyrano over him...
