It has to be Big Fish
The incredible story of Edward Bloom's life told door the man himself. His son is at first frustrated door Edward's constant tall tales and wants him just to be honest. door the end of the film he realises that his father was telling him what had really happened but had put his own unique twist on the events.
Edward's dying wish is for his son to tell him how he "goes". His son is able to come up with a tall tale of his own, telling his father how they both escape from the hospital and race to the lake where Edward transforms into a big fish.
The ending makes me cry every time 😭
