2 Grave of the Fireflies Grave of the Fireflies

So depressing that you will want to slit your wrists, hang yourself, take an overdose of pills, or choose any other method of suicide after watching this.

3 Million Dollar Baby Million Dollar Baby

Her story is really depressing Maggie Fitzgerald, a young brave boxer's drama - MatrixGuy

4 P.S. I Love You P.S. I Love You

This film is not depressing at all. Sure, the love of her life dies, but through a series of beautiful letters he wrote before his death, he helped his girlfriend get through her grief and live her life at the same time. It's a wonderful story. - Britgirl
