One of the most expressive criers I've seen

I have been waiting for this rare Portuguese soap opera for a very long time. There are some amazing crying parts by Diogo Infante about whom I posted a few years ago in other films and soaps. In this series he's much younger and he seems a very versatile crier and very handsome too ( maybe i'm just subjective) .The subject of the movie is about an old lady who's accused of maintaining a Ponzi scheme in very dubious circumstances. The story is described here :
 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dona_Branca
The young man who plays her step grandson is played by Diogo Infante. They have a lot of sweet moments in the film when they both cry and comfort each other. I find his face when crying particularly beautiful and fascinating, even beyond words.
I' ll post a couple of scenes when he's shown with tears in his eyes, crying and sobbing.

https://arquivos.rtp.pt/conteudos/a-banqueira-do-povo-ep-127-parte-ii/ ( the crying starts at about 15:53, he sees his former girlfriend commiting suicide and he wants to revenge those who made her do it )
https://arquivos.rtp.pt/conteudos/a-banqueira-do-povo-ep-122-parte-ii/ ( it starts at 10:41 , talking to his step grandmother and telling her how much he loves her)
https://arquivos.rtp.pt/conteudos/a-banqueira-do-povo-ep-96-parte-i/ ( he only tears up in this one, at around 22:30)
https://arquivos.rtp.pt/conteudos/a-banqueira-do-povo-ep-02-parte-i/ ( at 1:24 , there's a close up of his eyes filled with tears and at around 3:24 the scene continues as he realizes he's going to cry some more,  at 7'34 he's outside and a family friend comforts him after he has found out about the death of his former girlfriend from the news ), at 11:05 he's shown walking by , distraught and tearing up , same at 20:24, he's comforted both by his stepgrandmother and another woman)

https://arquivos.rtp.pt/conteudos/a-banqueira-do-povo-ep-02-parte-ii/ ( at 11:17 he's crying at the funeral, this one has a nice progression from tearing up to tears streaming down, to sobbing, at 18'55 he tries not to cry again )
https://arquivos.rtp.pt/conteudos/a-banqueira-do-povo-ep-03-parte-ii/ ( at 15:03 there's a continuation of the scene from ep 2, after the funeral, his eyes at 16:04 !!!)

The last part of this one is amazing :

 https://arquivos.rtp.pt/conteudos/a-banqueira-do-povo-ep-130-parte-ii/ ( the scene starts at 3:30, he's upset because the lady needs to go to prison, he finds this unfair and demeaning to her, he starts crying more seriously from 9:00)

This sounds amazing but alas, I can't get the site to work for me!

Speaking of non-English-speaking shows, have you seen Velvet or Gran Hotel? I was reading this blog post about men crying in those. https://artiststruggle.wordpress.com/2021/02/21/men-crying/amp/


Don't mind me, I'm just here to fill my lachrimatory.

Hello Phoebe !

I 'm so sorry the site isn't working at all. I wish i can help you see them. I'll post some from youtube these days. This series is also there but some parts are missing or the resolution is not as good as on this site.
I haven't seen Velvet and Gran Hotel but i will reasearch the scenes as soon as i can. Thank you for telling me about these.

I found some on youtube :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gp4w13E2hvk

This one is when he finds out his girlfriend has commited suicide from the news. He's totally shocked and there are some instances when he sheds tears : at 3:21 ( and he flees outside for not being seen ) at 7:21 he's shown being comforted by a family friend , at 11:10 he's shown walking around on the street with tears in his eyes , at 20:16 he's comforted again , at 34 :35 he's attending the funeral and he proressively starts crying and then sobbing ).

Re: One of the most expressive criers I've seen

Thank you for the YT links! He is so very very pretty. When he leaves because he realizes he's going to cry again you just want to hug him! And the last link, from the movie, he does the 'crying pretty tear streams' thing. (Did I mention he's super pretty?)

The timestamps for the YT links may be slightly inaccurate because I couldn't find the sobbing. I did look around for it.

At 35:05 he's shown with tears streaming down untill about 35:12  and then there's a very short scene when he's sitting in front of a grave ( after he has fled again ) at 35:28 when he's shown crying more intensely ( i couldn't tell if that's sobbing or not). In the scenes towards the end of the series he's actually sobbing but i still couldn't  find those on youtube. I think the poster forgot to add them which is very frustrating.
