A delightful tale with a dash of history. The animation comes off the screen and envelopes the viewer.

Cute film.
Light, fluffy, nothing-ness.
A smidgen of a plot; Sort of a Time-Loop.

Full-circle entertainment; family-style popcorn.
A lot of swearing and bible burning and ★ drawings of lesbian tattoos.
Just joking, there's no swearing.
or tattoos, darn it.


SPOILER ALERT
There are a lot of clocks. ★ NUDE Clocks. And clocks made outside of the sanctuary zones, from another country, other than the United States. So if "THAT" is not your sort of thing; you have been warned. Younger viewers may need an adult in the room to explain some of the complicated subjects like, love and trust, and kindness. Could be difficult for old Orange republicans to watch, in one sitting.

This love letter to cinema and more specifically to film pioneer George Mieles is itself a very charming piece of cinema. The visuals are stunning as we follow the life of Hugo who while living as an orphan in a train station and tending to it's clocks, is seeking his place in life and his identity. In the journey he helps restore a broken old man (Mieles) to his place in life while touching the lives of numerous other people as well.

It is a very touching story. There are some sad times and happy times. That is what I like about a movie it is one of my favorites.

This was a different kind of film. It was too slow moving for a lot of kids-many times there were several excruciating seconds (altho it seemed like hours) with no dialogue - would not hold all children's interest very long. And yes, it could have been done in a lot shorter time frame.

Great film for kids about a boy who ends up alone in the Paris train station circa post WWI taking care of the clocks there. This is a story which empowers kids. Hugo watches the world as it passes through the train station but he still has his own dreams and a wonderful ability to understand and fix mechanical things like clocks. Highly recommended!!

HUGO CABRET: I'd imagine the whole world was one big machine. Machines never come with any extra parts, you know. They always come with the exact amount they need. So I figured, if the entire world was one big machine, I couldn't be an extra part. I had to be here for some reason. And that means you have to be here for some reason, too.

Hugo Cabret: "Everything has a purpose - even machines... Clocks tell the time... trains take you places... They do what they're meant to do." Isabelle: "Like Monsieur Labisse!" Hugo Cabret: "Maybe that's why broken machines make me so sad... they can't do what they're meant to do... Maybe it's the same with people. If you lose your purpose... it's like you're broken."

Other: Smoking on occasion and one subtle mention of sexual innuendo (between the orphanage man and the station inspector) in regards to legitimacy of a child
