I have seen a little number of movies explored a very little number of genres, this movie Hugo is an Art in every-way.. Wow, what a feeling..
The choice of characters and the boy Hugo’s acting. His understanding about the machine. A quote that he explains out of his understanding towards machines. What is the intensive reason behind fixing a broken machine.
The machines will always come with exact number of parts with which it can Run.. Not a single extra part.. If I imagine the whole world as a machine, I am not an extra part.. I am a meaning full part.. So everyone came here for a reason..
And the passion towards to movies n the making of this particular ART OF DREAMS. Runs as a soul of movies.. Hugo would have known the only way to escape from the guard and it was inherited from the movie scene he watches with his tricks..
The guard, his broken leg n his love over a flower shop keeper.. A pleasing lady who never needed words to express..
The automaton starts with a key, playing a key role in the movie.. When a kid left alone n has none to talk yet strengthened with his fathers thought processes stories n of-course with the movies he watched, he chooses to fix the automaton to here his father.. When the automaton is fixed he got the message from his father n also it initiates the thrust behind the unrevealed secret of what is the image all about..
There comes the story of a creator pushed by passion of making a film, making a magic, making a dream to get live on a screen.. Oh man, the way the flash back reveals his legendary creations.. The love over his wife n their journey towards their passion.. Seeing the woman travelling with him all through his life standing with pride n standing with all the love they shared. The wonders, Arts, directions n illusions cropped n crafted out of a old age camera n the miraculous eye catching sets inspired a kid to write a book upon him..
The feeling of creator who is now left with nothing, must be surprised to look at Hugo’s automaton. Hugo decides to gift it n fighting over the character the guard.. He reaches the end of his lonely life but the guard trying to hold him back.. Hugo fought in between the automaton the key to end his lonely life is broken n he cries to the guard leave him.. And says a dialog “i dont understand why my father died” n you have to let me go as i do not belong to a orphanage..
The guard is a good man of-course he proved it because he is in love.. And the godfather enters to take Hugo with him. And says the automaton worked perfectly. Even-though Hugo admits n apologise as its broken.. It’s a wonder now Hugo has a family and the godfather recognised for the foreseen “Dream factory” of cinematography..
The camera showing the olden age with a brown tint. No bright colour which gives a shuttle feel all the way. The only colour that dazzle is Hugo’s little bright eyes, the dress of inspector, and the women’s flowers with which they accomplished awesomeness.. The orchestra playing the background throughout is a clever magic.. And the note they left with the broken leg of the guard.. And a small love between a coffee shop owner lady n a old man..
Most importantly the librarian who helps the child to get to the right shelf of treasure old books.. The gift of robin hood stories by the old man was a clever choice..
Last but cant be the least Isabelle.. The only friend of hugo.. Who always asked to read books n never the movies.. Raised well by her grandfather n her love over books. And how wise the little girl turned out to be with the help of a good guide of books.. And her Vocabulary, simply poetic and clever..
Hugo a complete package.! It won oscar n now i have respect for the oscar awards..!
