Colin Firth, Genius

Shedding a few quiet British tears upon reading the last letter of a dear friend. He's another one of those few people who make the 'silent tears' thing moving instead of looking fake.

Re: Colin Firth, Genius

It's funny, I once read an interview with him where he said he does so much crying for his work that he very rarely cries in real life.

Re: Colin Firth, Genius

Go figure. Guess he's getting the emotional catharsis he needs. I bet he cries lots when watching the beginning of Up like 99% of adults do, though. (I have not; I tend not to cry at cryfest media, but I haven't seen Up for a few years, and in the interim I've had a death in the family that's left me crying at the most random things, and most music, so I might if I watched it again.)

Does he really cry that often in his work? I can think of three scenes he's done, but I can think of like four other actors who I can name like five different crying scenes each of them have done off the top of my head. Maybe I'm just missing most of Colin's?

Re: Colin Firth, Genius

He seems fairly prolific as far as crying scenes, at least to me.

I'm aware of this scene, The King's Speech, and A Single Man. If you know of others, I'd be glad to be pointed in their direction.

Re: Colin Firth, Genius

There's a scene in which he cries at the end of the movie "And When Did You Last See Your Father?"

Edit: I found a clip on YouTube. It's not the best quality but it's all I could find. The title is in Spanish but the audio is in English.


And I believe there's also a scene of him crying in the movie Trauma. 

I heard him say in an interview once that in the movie Genova, they'd cut a scene in which he was crying on his bed because they didn't feel it would add much to the story. Which is a bit of a bummer, because the movie really calls for such a crying scene. But that's just my opinion.  I'm really curious to find out what that scene exactly looked like.

Re: Colin Firth, Genius

Oh that's beautiful! So sweet and sad, standing all by himself quietly sobbing.
Any idea when that scene in Trauma happens or what's happening?
I am rather incensed at the thought of CUTTING a crying scene. Blasphemy!

Re: Colin Firth, Genius

I'm not quite certain, but I believe it was during some sort of therapy session in which he relived it all.

I'll see if I still have the DVD, in that case I'll be able to give a better answer. Can't promise anything though. I tried to search online for a clip but I haven't been able to find one.


I agree with you on cutting such a scene. I have the movie on DVD but it's not included in any of the extra features. Such a shame!

I found the whole movie here, the scene is a bit clearer and it starts at 1:22:00 ( the actor who plays his dad has also visible tears in his eyes. Colin Firth's sobbing though ...is simply amazing !
