Train to Busan (2016)
A South Korean zombie epic might not be everyone’s first choice but I have yet to get through this without crying in two particular scenes.
I can’t tell you exactly which scenes without there being spoilers but for those who have seen this film (and if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?), the first involves tough soon-to-be-father Sang-hwa (Dong-seok Ma) and the second a rather beautiful image of a person’s shadow.
Zombie films don’t always tug on your heart strings and the development of character in Train to Busan is what makes it so affecting. It is ultimately about love and sacrifice and how to be a good dad when all hope is lost. You can read my review of it here
