HUGO ..........






Have any of you seen the film HUGO ? It was made in 2011 so it's not new, won Academy Awards and Baftas  and I'm obviously late to the party but I loved it ..... an historical adventure drama film directed and produced by Martin Scorsese. I won't go into a long review but it involves Georges Mélies'  A Trip To The Moon and a boy who lives and winds the clocks at Paris train station.



It is a charming film and the music is great as well.

    1. Nor had I ...... it's such a lovely film ..... not deep and meaningful, just charming and a nice couple of hours watching. Thanks for your support on the blog Cro ...... I think that comments are thin on the ground at the moment !!!!! XXXX

  2. Nor me. Do you know what Scorses's favourite film is? 'A Canterbury Tale' by Powell and Pressburger. It's my favourite too.

  3. Nor me. Not sure it would be my sort of film even though it is a railway station and there might be trains!

    1. I think you might like it Rachel ..... it’s just a charming little film and easy to watch ..., I don’t suppose anyone has watched the clip but the music is good .... very Edith Piaf and haunting. Sometimes I just want to watch something that doesn’t require a great deal of thought. ! That probably says a lot about me 🤣 XXXX

  5. The film is based on a wonderfully illustrated children's graphic novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick.

  8. I watched as you tweaked my curiosity - then I fogot to come back to comment until today, sorry Jackie. I've added to the movie to my Netflix Queue as I think it looks amazing with the opening aerial photog of Paris!
    Sometimes a movie such as this helps one escape from the sad times of life - and I need to do that.

    1. Hi Mary,
      Don’t worry about not commenting sometimes ...... I sometimes do the same thing and then think that I’ve commented ( old age !!!) I was just annoyed that people coukdn’t comment if they wanted to.
      I hope people won’t be disappointed if and when they watch Hugo ....... it is simple and charming and I loved it ( but maybe I’m simple 🤣 ) I love a bit of escapism and a film that isn’t too deep or violent. XXXX
