HUGO (2011)


Herald Sun - Hit - - UP STREAM -

A late-ca­reer burst of bril­liance from the great Martin Scors­ese, an un­likely con­tender for the fam­ily de­mo­graphic. A ba­sic plot fol­lows a young or­phan boy hid­ing out at a Paris train sta­tion in the 1930s, tend­ing to the main­te­nance of the plat­form clocks. How­ever, it is when Scors­ese moves to cel­e­brate the early magic of si­lent cin­ema with some in­spired flash­back se­quences that his film re­ally hits a glo­ri­ous stride.
