We were talking in another thread about true love. I wanted to share this clip from the movie Up. It's very poignant and I cannot watch it without bawling. I think they did a very good job of conveying true love with these two characters. This is how I see it anyway. It's very beautiful.




One of my all-time favorite films (especially that opening sequence, and this scene); seen it multiple times on my DVD player.

Always brings the tears.  Did it again when i saw this clip.

I loved Up too. :) Very poignant and moving. I found this post (below) that I wrote about it back in 2010. It might help to explain the clip better.

*Spoilers below*






"It was the typical scene of me bawling in the movie theater while my kids all chuckled at me. 

"Up" was in essence a love story which illustrated what is truly important in life. The old man's wife had died. All of her life, she had expressed a dream of going to a place called Paradise Falls where they would build a house and live happily ever after. But then real life happens...they lose a baby...a tree hits their house....the money always goes elsewhere. So no Paradise Falls. She dies and he feels he's disappointed her. So he goes on a quest himself to reach Paradise Falls. Throughout the movie, he occasionally looks at the cover of his wife's scrapbook, which she called, "Stuff I'm going to do". Every time the old man picks up the book, there is a sad and painful reminder that he didn't give his wife what she wanted in life. But he never brings himself to look inside or beyond some certain part of the book (I can't remember exactly which), assuming it will be filled with blank pages or dreams she was never able to live out. So one day he turns the page...and this is the part where I really lost it in the theater...and is surprised by what he sees on the pages. Turns out they aren't empty to represent her unfulfilled wishes and dreams as he'd feared... instead each page has pictures of their life together. As he turns the pages, there is the realization that his wife's life was ultimately fulfilling because she had been able to share it with him. In the end, life isn't about climbing to the highest peak of every mountain...it's about living day to day with your best friend by your side, through better or worse. Very powerful message. Good stuff, most definitely."

As far as I know, they "just" repeated experiments that had already been done about this - but in that case, it probably wasn't filmed, so it's good to actually see it - some people might found it "more persuasive".
