In Paris in 1931, an orphan named Hugo Cabret who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton.
While most of the film was shot in studio in London, two weeks of location shooting were actually done in Paris.
What an idiot! Thinking I could fix it!
Hugo Cabret: It's broken! It's always been broken!
Isabelle: Hugo, it doesn't have to be like this. You can fix it.
Hugo Cabret: You don't... you don't understand. I thought... I thought if I could fix it... then I wouldn't be so alone.
When Hugo is sitting in the armchair just before the automaton continues writing, Isabelle puts her right hand on the arm of the chair (00:52:53). A few seconds later (00:53:10) she has moved her hand farther up the chair arm and is leaning in a bit. The wide shot immediately following (00:53:13) shows Isabelle's right hand hanging at her side.
There is only one opening credit, the film's title, which does not appear until nearly 15 minutes into the film.
