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.
Martin Scorsese said that when he read the book, "The Invention of Hugo Cabret", he felt an immediate connection to the story.
It's in color!
Mama Jeanne: Of course it is, we tinted them. We painted them by hand, frame by frame.
When Georges Méliès confiscates Hugo's notebook, it's wrapped with a rubber band as Hugo places it on the counter (at around 5 mins). The next view shows it without a rubber band (at around 5 mins). Then it reappears on the notebook (at around 5 mins), and then, without being taken off, ends up on the table (at around 6 mins) when we first see the pages as Georges begins flipping through them.
There is only one opening credit, the film's title, which does not appear until nearly 15 minutes into the film.
