Hugo Cabret

The other day, I had the chance to watch Hugo Cabret, and I absolutely loved it. I never thought a movie about two kids would prove to be so sweet and touching. Martin Scorcese outdid himself in transporting us to Old Paris and into the dreams of a little boy. If I get the chance I am definitely going to read the book.

Hugo Cabret: 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…

This quote is quite central to the plot, and I was deeply touched by it, especially considering that I am still trying to figure out my own function in the world. The characters were all very endearing, and now I know who George Melies was, apart from one of the Eleves Dieux in Bernard Werber’s Trilogie des dieux.

All in all, Hugo Cabret is a feast for the eyes and the soul. I feel a lot like how I felt after watching Ratatouille and Amelie Poulain, a sweet feel-good sensation, like a nice and warm chicken soup…
