YMMV: Babel
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Chieko. She's the least connected to the main plot, but critics were talking about Rinko Kikuchi's Oscar chances the instant the movie came out.
  • Tear Jerker: This pretty much goes hand-in-hand with Oscar Bait movies. The exceptionally sad scenes all involve the deaf Japanese girl struggling with coming of age and her maturing sexuality.
  • Unintentionally Unsympathetic: It's the case for many (but not all) characters. Obviously caused by the Idiot Plot.
