Set in 1930s Paris, the story of an orphan who lives inside the walls of a train station. A broken automaton, a lovely eccentric girl, a cold man running a toy shop and a big mystery to resolve are the main ingredients to this amazing film.
Hugo was actually a big event for me because I kept refusing to watch it for a long time. When it came out I complained and complained about it without any apparent reason; I just thought it was a stupid child’s movie not worthy of my attention, even though I knew Scorsese was involved in this.
One day my boyfriend talked me out of my stubbornness and we just sat to watch it. How wrong I was! It surprised me with grace, wit, charm and sentiment. Such a lovely story beautifully represented on screen. A magical adventure with excellent effects and lots of details about cinema itself that would attract any cinephile to watch closely.
After this, I learned not to doubt Scorsese’s genius imagination never again.
The experts say 7.8 IMDB | 94% Rotten Tomatoes | 83 Metacritic
I agree this time with R.Tomatoes, I love it and it deserves a 90.
