Probably the saddest movie I've ever seen is a famous German movie called "Die letzten Tage der Sophie Scholl" ("The final days of Sophie Scholl"). It's based on a true story. Sophie Scholl was a German, 21-year old university student in 1941. She founded a non-violent underground resistance group called "Die weisse Rose" (The white rose) along with her brother Hans Scholl, three of their best friends and one of their university professors (and a few other people). Together they secretly printed thousands of leaflets on which they wrote about the war crimes of the Nazis and the torture of Jews and called out to the people of Germany to oppose the Nazis. They also did other illegal actions, such as secretly spraying "Down with Hitler" or "Freedom for Germany" against house walls during the night. In 1943 they were caught by the Gestapo while they were distributing leaflets at their university during the lecture time and they were tried for high treason. Despite extensive efforts by the Gestapo to squeeze more information out of the leaders Sophie and Hans Scholl, they kept quiet and did not give away the names of their friends who hadn't been caught. Only a few days later, Sophie Scholl, her brother Hans and a few other members were found guilty and executed. Some of their leaflets however made it all the way from Munich to Scandinavia and from their across the sea to Great Britain, where they were re-copied by the Royal Army and dropped all over Germany. The movie is different from sad Hollywood movies in that it doesn't make you ball your eyes out. The type of sadness it creates is more of a very deep, depressive kind of sadness. It's extremely touching. I once watched it in high school and after the movie was over, the whole class was completely silent for about 10 minutes. Nobody felt like saying a word, let alone go back to fooling around with his/her friends. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XM5A4ETW_Io
7 pounds is the only movie to ever make me cry. Lars Von Trier has several movies that've made me sad. Dancer in the Dark and Melancholia to name a few The green mile is a tough one. I'm sure I could think of more but that's a good start
That would have to be this scene it really hits home for me, and is one of the few scenes that will ever bring me to tears. It's from the HBO series Band of Brothers a scene from it regarding one of the first German concentration camps found, filled with Jews, Pols, my people the gypsy's, Christians, Slavs etc. It's a sad scene and even this isn't even near as bad as the actual camps were.

I know this doesn't TOTALLY apply to the question because it's a TV show, but if you're ever interested in watching foreign shows, there's this Korean drama called "My Love From Another Star." I have never cried so much in my life as when I watched that show. It's only one season and each episode is a little over an hour, so they feel like short movies. This show will absolutely move you and make you feel things. The lead actors are amazing and the lead guy will break your heart in the best way possible. Highly, highly recommended. You can watch it on Dramafever (it is subtitled). It's also on Hulu, but it looks like there are ads on the Hulu videos. www.dramafever.com/.../?ap=1
Slightly more relevant to the question... I recently watched Interstellar for the first time and bawled like a baby over certain parts. Another one that really made me sad was The Boy In The Striped Pajamas (that one's about the Holocaust and a concentration camp). But one that REALLY left me feeling terrible was this movie that came out years ago called Knowing. There was a lot of mass-deaths and tragedy, and as cool as the concept was, it absolutely hit me to the core. OH MY GOSH and Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close. That movie will make you bawl.
I seriously can't think of a movie that really stands out that was tragic.
Only thing that comes to mind about seeing anything that was tragic. Is that anime called,"Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your lie in April.)"Nothing will ever be more sad than that and extremely touching. Though this doesn't count since it's a tv show. :(
Grave of the fireflies. A devastating meditation on the human cost of war, this animated tale follows Seita (Tsutomu Tatsumi), a teenager charged with the care of his younger sister, Setsuko (Ayano Shiraishi), after an American firebombing during World War II separates the two children from their parents. Their tale of survival is as heartbreaking as it is true to life. The siblings rely completely on each other and struggle against all odds to stay together and stay alive, except they do not.
