The closing six minutes of the famous David Lean film. Celia Johnson parting from Trevor Howard, then returning to her husband, all to the music of Rachmaninoff's second Piano Concerto.
This is absolutely one of my favorite movies of all time, and winner of the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1946, and #2* in the British Film Institutes list of the Top 100 British Films.
There are excerpts of many of the iconic moments from the film available on YouTube. The one embedded above is the tear-jerking finale. For a total (and refreshing, for film buffs) change, try the parody embedded below, starring Victoria Wood. It's exceptionally well done.
