A Japanese animation film that has a pretty intense story about two children who lose their parents during a bombing in WWII. In the ruins of their city, they struggle to find food, water and shelter.

Saddest thing about the film is that it's based on a true story. I don't wanna spoil anything, but I can tell you that you're not gonna feel happy after you've seen it.

This, the saddest part by far is that it actually happened to the guy who made the film and it haunted him all of his life. This movie is by far the best anti-war movie that has ever been made. If your soul isn't crushed by the end of this movie you can personally come over to my house and slap me in the face.

Eh, I don't elicit any emotion at all from these supposedly "depressing movies". It's just the same old shit.

Saying that though, that episode of Futurama...

Yes, as said previously, Grave of the Fireflies. I mean, the whole damn movie is a sob-fest. The happiest part is probably the fruit snacks. Everything else is doom, abuse, depression, sickness, death, oh yeah, and maggot ridden corpses. Who said corpse was makes it all the more depressing.

In the end, I think I was more angry towards the kid (for reasons I will not reveal) at the end rather than sad for their state of affairs. Still, this movie will certifiably force tear drops to come out of your eyes.

And I think it was made by Miyazaki as well. Damn, that guy IS the Japanese Disney.

Every swedish movie ever made is kind of depressing.

Because in Sweden it's all about making art

The worst part for me was that I have a little sister and had to take care of her a lot when my mother went to work and stuff.
It felt so relate able. Fucking cried my heart out.

OFFICIALLY SADDEST MOVIE EVER.

That episode of Pokemon where Ash tells pikachu to be free with the rest of the pikachus in that one forest, but don't keep going with the episode, just keep replaying the part where he keeps running away from fucking confused pikachu.

The Door In The Floor was a really depressing dramady. It kind of reminded me of the Squid and the Whale, but far more depressing because the main reason I found SATW depressing is because I could relate to it. Yeah, but it was a good movie, I don't like that kind of film usually but I thought it was pretty good. I'd say give it a watch.

Oh, and advice: don't just read the plots to movies, they're depressing from actually watching them and knowing the ending renders them far less powerful.

House of Sand & Fog is terribly depressing, and I'd guess Jennifer Connelly's filmography contains a few more gems, going by that film and Requiem for a Dream.

Grave of the Fireflies is extremely depressing, too, but I didn't care much for it at all.

I found Boys Don't Cry depressing, but maybe I just don't like rednecks. Speaking of which, Chloë Sevigny makes me uncomfortable whenever I watch her, I would guarantee she has been in her fair share of depressing films.

Also, Fat Girl & Twentynine Palms.

I don't find it to be sad, well in the way OP is looking for anyways. One of my faves by the way.

Well i guess i found it sad because i felt that i was in his situation. It showed me what happened too the dramatic zach braff that left after the first season of scrubs and since i live in jersey it hit me pretty hard...
