- The Godfather
After Vito Corleone has recovered from his assasination attempt; he's playing in his tomato garden with his grandchildren; he has a heart-attack and
sinks down, dying; but the grandkids think he's playing . . .
At the end, when Ilse won't get on the plane with her legal husband, Viktor Laszlo; and Bogart tries to force her. She remembers deserting him in
Paris, on the train for Marseilles. She says, "but what about Paris." Bogart says "We'll always have Paris--if we ever lost it, we got it back
last night . . ."
And she cries and mouths "thank you Rick." Gawd, Ingrid Bergman is just the epitome of the lovelorn woman in that moment. Just beautiful.
-The Passion of the Christ
Mary is watching as Jesus is dragging the cross down the the street. As he collapses and falls to the ground, she remembers him as a toddler, running
down the path to their house as she calls his name. The little boy Jesus trips and falls, and she rushes to him. The look of shock and pain fades
into the adult face of Jesus is shock and pain. She reaches out for her grown son, but the soldiers drag him away.
Nothing more painful than watching your own child suffer.
