"Hugo" a movie by Martin Scorcese captured my heart. It is a little dark in the beginning but the middle has some old movie footage and the storyline really picks up. Plus there is a happy ending which is something I like to know.
I took my mother. She said. "I didn't really understand it but I liked it." That says it all. As an artist it was just right for me and that the two of us both enjoyed it is a miracle. The visual effects are dazzling with or without the 3D glasses.
It is the story of creation and loss. It tells the destruction of war and yet the triumph of the human spirit especially through the next generation. There is such hope in the darkness that we need to remember the world belongs to the children. Our time is not forgotten but it moves into history so quickly.
The movie was about love and being creative. It is about overcoming your fears and never giving up. And it is about transformation. No wonder my mom didn't have a clue about what was going on.
The panoramas of Paris are wonderful, the period costumes endearing and the crowd scenes are original and entertaining. Well done. Uplifting. Sweet.
Martin Scorcese makes a cameo appearance in Hugo.
Jude Law wasn't in the movie quite long enough. What a fellow!
I loved this scene where the drawings fly all over the room. Magical.
