Sad Cypress

did anyone else find this film very sad and moving? I must admit unashamedly every time I watch this a tear comes to my eye. I think that the film score helps in making this appear a rather sad tale, due to the fact that the majority of the themes are played by the 'cello which is the most mournful of all orchestral instruments. Also, I did find the David Suchet version of Appointment with Death extremely sad and moving (here again helped by the score and with Purcell's Dido's Lament) not for the murdered victim who deserved all she got, but for the way in which she treated her children as she throughly destroyed them and, as I suspect, also the nanny whom she instructed to do the beatings on her behalf.
