I cried at that too. Its one of the most haunting scenes I've ever seen. I was absolutely shattered by it and I struggled to shake it afterwards. And it is extremely rare that a scene would affect me like that. Normally, the emotions end with the movie.
I get that... You know, I didn't actually cry. It was more of a deep sadness. I could've cried though.
I get teary-eyed the most often at scenes when people are rallying for one another, loyalty.
It's weird, but I usually (not always) get hit way harder by hard-earned moment of happiness or small joys than by a sad event. For example, the scene with the book in Up hits me a lot more than that opening montage.
I don't tend to cry at big, epic films which are making some profound point. They'll touch me, make me think, etc, but they don't usually produce tears. An exception might be The Elephant Man....that will make me cry.
Otherwise, I tend to get teary-eyed over smaller, more individual moments. Nothing profound, but just glimpses of everyday sadness.
This movie sucks, but in Hope Floats, the scene where the little girl runs after her dad as he's leaving the family, and he tells her she can't come with him.
In Muriel's Wedding, when she breaks down crying in the dressing room of a wedding boutique, saying "Why can't it be me? Why can't I be the one? ".

Hrm... I can't remember when I last cried in a movie... I would have been a child I suspect.
There are a few films that have gotten to me though. I thought "Milk" was amazing and equally pissed me off and inspired me. "Mrs. Brown" was also pretty amazing. Made me contemplative for days afterwards: did they or did they not? Duty or love or both?
