NausicaƤ of the Valley of the Wind is a bit too dark

5 second plot: In a far away future wars have destroyed the world. The air is toxic, there are giant killer bugs and what's left of humanity is still at war, killing each other. But there is one hopeful light at the end of this dark tunnel, and that's the girl from the title, a brave princess with a heart of gold.

5 second review: It's not a very cheerful movie, this one. Most of the people in it are no good, there are only a few actually worth saving. It starts off as a great adventure, but then tumbles down the evil roller-coaster of mankind. Great visuals, but I prefer it a little less bleak.
