City Lights (1931)
The famous ending which is also bit ambiguous. Can we be sure The Tramp and the flower girl continue living life together? Or is it possible that flower girl was disappointed after she saw him because he didn't look like what she thought he would? I'd like to believe she was not maybe shocked but just very very surprised because maybe she wasn't really expecting him to show up again.
The Blue Angel (1930)
Ending is famous and for good reason. It is very powerful in it's sadness.
Summer with Monika (1953)
Ending scene where we see Harry thinking about Monika and then leaving to his old work place. He realizes finally there's no way going back and it is obviously heartbreaking to see that he and Monika were not meant for each other after all.

Army of Shadows (1969)
At the end lead character makes a hard decision and kills one of the people in resistance group. This scene demonstrates perfectly what kind of sacrifices these kind of people were ready to do to.

Swept Away (1974) (1975)
This is full of memorable scenes but nothing beats the scene in which our two main characters are finally separated.
Blonde Venus (1932)
Ending scene where Helen is singing german lullaby song to his son. Dialogue after that is also very touching.
Ending where mother is telling story to her child and we see starry sky through the window.
The Straight Story (1999)
I actually shed a tear when main character finally met his brother again and they sat down to look stars. So simple yet extremely touching. This is a movie with genuinely humane messages.
The Kid (1921)
Kid being taken away from Tramp's house. This is absolutely one of saddest moments in Chaplin's movies and it definitely is a classic scene as well of course is the whole movie.
Bicycle Thieves (1948)
The very last scene. Father and his son has gone through a lot but what have they learned? Some of the most important things in human life. They has suffered through harsh times but at least they still has each other.

Modern Times (1936)
Hard to pick one scene but anyway the simple ending scene always manages to impresses my. Message is very simple but that's just what is so great about it. We should never give up, despite what happens to us. There will always be some way to happiness and joy no matter how desperate current situation may look like.
Wild Strawberries (1957)
At the end we see this old man thinking about good old times and then going to sleep. Powerful but soft end to a very thought provoking story

Scene at the end where we see Ali and Emmi dancing slowly.

Ending scene is simple but yet so powerful: we see man running in the battlefield without any weapons and finally we see him getting shot. Right after that the movie ends.

The Gold Rush (1925)
The tramp is in his cabin waiting for a woman he's fallen love to but the woman doesn't arrive although she promised.
Badlands (1973) (1974)
Basically any scene including George Tipton's magnificent score playing is powerful but especially the ending is excellent because in that scene we see our character in his last trip. Music mixes perfectly with those pretty clouds in the sky.
Scene where Tony is talking to his dead sister is extremely emotional. We also hear sounds of gun shots in the background which adds more power to the effect of this scene.
Mr. Hulot's Holiday (1953)
This is such a nostagic movie! I guess the most touching moment in this was when the Mr Hulot had to finally leave the holiday resort.
Battleship Potemkin (1925)
Famous scene at Odessa Steps with woman getting shot. It's still heartbreaking scene.
Scene with little girl and monster. Tragic and sad scene but I think monster didn't just understand what he was doing so I definitely have some sympathy for him despite him killing the girl.
In the Mood for Love (2000)
The very last scene. It's mysterious and touching same time.
Ivan's Childhood (1962)
This has many great scenes but maybe the end scene is the best one.
Days of Heaven (1978)
Bill and Abby are meeting the last time.
Paths of Glory (1957)
German woman singing heart-warming song with very pretty voice.
When the lovers meet again in this simple but powerful story you are very close at shedding of tears.
Lust, Caution (2007)
At the end we see lead male character in front of empty bed. What is he thinking? Did he really love the woman after all? It's very possible that their relationship weren't about lust after all.
Humbert realizes that he can't meet Lolita anymore because she is married now to another man.
The New World (2006)
One of the most memorable endings to a movie in this century. We see girl in new clothes dancing and running in the middle of big trees in the giant garden. Some of her old habits still sits strong in her in spite of the new world she's living in now.
The ending. Surprising and shocking.

The ending scene. Spartacus finally meets his loved one and baby.
Morgan Freeman have a powerful voice and his monologue at the very last scene is really memorable.

The famous scene at the beach at the end of the movie.
The Crow (1994)
It is very emotional scene when Eric Draven finally meets his girlfriend again.
