These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Crowning Moment of Funny: Henry's interrupted wedding to Princess Gabriela, who can't do anything by sob and plead in her mother tongue is half this, half Crosses the Line Twice. It's even better when Henry calls off the wedding and lets Gabriela go to the guy she loves (one of the courtiers)... and then the Spanish Royal couple start bitching at each other... and in Spanish too.
This really snarky piece of dialogue between the King, Rodmilla and Jacqueline when Rodmilla and Marguerite are called upon the Royal Couple's presence and unmasked as Danielle's abusers
The King: "Good Lord! Do they always behave like this?
Jacqueline: "Worse, Your Majesty!"
Baroness Rodmilla de Ghent: "Jacqueline, darling, I should hate to think you had anything to do with this."
Crazy Awesome: Leonardo da Vinci. Everything he says or does is awesome.
Leonardo da Vinci: "I shall go down in history as the man who opened a door!"
Moral Event Horizon: After Danielle punches Marguerite for insulting her dead mother, Marguerite steals Danielle's copy of "Utopia" the last thing her father gave her before he died. She gives Danielle a choice, the book gets burned, or Marguerite gets the shoes that belonged to her dead mother, the only memento Danielle has of her. After some thought, she silently hands the shoes over to her. That alone would be pretty rotten, but Marguerite crosses the Moral Event Horizon when she intentionally burns the book anyway just out of spite at Danielle's punching her. Then the step-mother crosses it when she holds a tearful Danielle and forces her to watch the book burn after she tried to save it. After that scene, there was no way either of these characters could gain any sympathy in the eyes of the audience.
Don't forget the fact that Danielle is still whipped afterwards.
This troper always had a hard time getting through Danielle's father's death scene.
Maurice's reunion with his wife early in the movie always gets this Troper, for some reason.
This troper can't even watch the scene where Danielle's book gets burned.
Agreed. The look of absolute anguish on Danielle's face as she has to choose between the shoes (her one gift from her mother, and the only way she can remember her) or her copy of Utopia (her one gift from her father, and the only way she can remember him), and then how broken she looks as she gives up the shoes; only to see Marguerite throw the book into the fire anyway. Barrymore/Danielle gives a heartbreaking scream as she reaches for the book, and then just as the audience feels a Hope Spot, the Baronness restrains Danielle and forces her to watch it burn.
