The Waterworks - Bring an Umbrella

Movies that made me cry. A list idea taken from a letterboxd subreddit post. Trying to recall my initial viewing of these films. Some I've seen many times and often cry less...most of the time. Though just thinking about The Farthest usually makes me feel like crying.

Notes contain the scenes, if I recall them. Tried to flag spoilers, but could have missed a couple. If I did, sorry.
List ordered by moments of tears shed (determined by sobbing emoji in notes), then alpha ordered within each level.
