The boy orphan Hugo lives in a small room in the Paris train station. All day long he was watching undergoing people, where everyone has their own thoughts, feelings and goals, whether it's florist, head of the station cafe with a cute little dog in her arms, a librarian or a lame stationmaster. Only occasionally Hugo secretly sneaks through the crowd and the smoke from the arriving train to find some food and, most importantly, find the missing parts of a very mysterious invention, which once he with his father found in the walls of the city museum.
Before us is a wonderful story where the boy with beautiful blue eyes, innocent, was a link between past and present, between reality and dreams. In this case, filled with fairy-tale movie, where the word fairy tale ends just as the opening credits end, we learn from the inside of what it means to lose something that truly love, and most importantly how to fix within a internal clock mechanism, which lacks only a couple of parts to restore its once-forgotten "I". It's easy slyness of the director with the children's hopes and disappointments, under cover of a Christmas tale, the audience dipped into a thin story about people who love what for them was the meaning of life. No wonder more than once spend an internal parallel with the Polish animated short film "Cinema", which lasts only 12 minutes, but with these minutes reveal the hopes and dreams of a man who puts his life into something that truly loves - in the movies.
Everyone remembers and knows the Lumiere brothers, but how many remember and know those of others who stood at the sources, developed the first steps in making a real run with a distance of "The Future". This film Martin Scorsese removed for all those who love the movie wholeheartedly, as if each shot bringing tribute to all those who once upon a time gave people an opportunity to plunge into something unforgettably beautiful. Something great, thanks to which we can dream, idealize, admire, feel illusion, disappointed, afraid to wait for a happy ending and just keep what each of us dearly. Keep time!
