In addition to the above, “The Browning Version” with Michael Redgrave…you want to see a man’s soul being destroyed, step right up……
“Ponette”…small girl dealing with the death of her mother….
Some of my favourites: Grave of the fireflies, Johny Got His Gun, The Ascent, The Passion of Joan of Arc, Le Notti Bianche, The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter, Lilya 4-Ever, Blue Eyelids …

I agree with Ponette and the Champ.
Requiem For A Heavyweight (‘62)- The Wrestler ain’t even close.
The Turin Horse, hello?
if we count the amount of tears – Ballad of a Soldier
