Tim Roth: "Chronic"

Tim Roth plays a nurse who works with terminally ill patients.  Here, he is catching up with the daughter he hasn't seen in some time and she brings up a very painful subject.  Unfortunately for us crying lovers, it is shot in profile and not close up.  However, it is all one take, and Roth's reaction, while subtle, is just so genuine and moving.

Climbing to a high chamber in a well of houses, he threw himself down in his clothes on a neglected bed, and its pillow was wet with wasted tears. -- A Tale of Two Cities

I loved the scene, very subtle cues about tearing up  yet powerfull..

Beautiful scene! God, how I wish that was a close-up! Also, I really had hoped she would have reached out and touched his arm or given him a hug or something! Argh! Broke my heart...I can't stand when people see someone crying and do nothing!!

On the other hand, seeing one's parent cry is super awkward and he was trying to hide it.
