Hugo 3D


Off to the cinema again over Christmas. We really like to go to the cinema on Christmas Eve. It’s a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit but this year… No blockbuster! I’d never even heard of Hugo but saw the ratings and enjoyed, but not loved, it.

The film is beautiful and charming. Almost exclusively filmed in a French train station with a cast of recognisable actors the film is packed with little vignettes between stereotypical characters; there’s dialogue but it’s sparse. The two main actors are both children and unfortunately their acting was the weakness of the film for me. In fact the whole casting for me seemed odd… Sacha Baron Cohen as the station copper???

The stars of the show are the style of the film, the steam punk settings, and the charming reminiscences of the silent film era. It’s a little long but the second half is much better than the first half. It’s not an award-winner but a lovely Christmas film to see with the family
