the most moving sequence


Senior Member
I read an article on the soundtrack of The First of the Few, a British war film, in Wikipedia and came across this sentence.

A review of The First of the Few in the New Statesman and Nation on August 29, 1942 mentioned the score: "Walton's music deserves special recommendation. His fugal movement for the assembly of parts of the Spitfire adds immensely to the most moving sequence in the film".

Does "moving" in this sentence mean "touching" or "affecting", rather than "active" or "mobile"?

Thanks in advance.
