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.
Ho Yay: What do Raoul and Anatole do when Christine chooses her career over both of them? Go off together.
Squick: Claudin washing his recently burned face with raw sewage.
The Woobie: Claudin. In the original script he was actually supposed to be Christine's father, so he doesn't have "that" kind of interest in her career, but rather he's attempingt to make up for the time he didn't get with her in her childhood. Even with that left out, he still loses his job, is revealed to be broke, gets disfigured by acid, goes insane, has to live in a cellar and eventually dies.
