Dialogue can TELL you what they are feeling, and facial expressions can SHOW you what they are feeling, but only through the abstract can you FEEL what they are feeling. Emotion is something you can only TRULY experience from the inside. Art is that which triggers within the OBSERVER what the artist wanted to convey.
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

And that is often done through character interaction and dialogue.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

Ok,that's right,but dialogue itself may contain symbolism as well: for example,if someone,while speaking,uses a metaphor,or a simile...this can be a good way to convey feelings to the viewer/reader.

That's a good point.  Almost like an image within an image.

I think it's more than this.Symbolism is the best way to show emotions and feelings in a movie.

Symbolism is the ONLY way to convey emotion. That's why art exists.

Why?What about dialogue,for example?It's still a way to express feelings,isn't it?

Marco, if I tell you I am angry, do you feel it? Have I really conveyed the emotion or have I just told you about it? What if I don't know what the word "angry" means? Also, dialogue can be art if it really gets you to feel what the author intended.

Wow, it's been a while, isn't it?   :D
However, I get your point and I totally agree with you, especially the last thing you said, that is almost what I said some time ago in a previous post: the author can express feelings and convey them to the reader/watcher through the right use of figures of speech. Of course, he has to be a talented one, because that is not an easy job, but it is possible for a good writer/storyteller. Otherwise, why we're supposed to read a book?
