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.
YMMV: The Pianist
Award Snub: Some felt this way when Chicago won Best Picture over this at the Oscars.
The Japanese Love The Pianist: Japan was the film's highest grossing foreign market. In fact, the film made almost as much money in Japan as it did in North America.
Tear Jerker: It's a Holocaust movie. It's to be expected.
