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.
The music during the scene in which Hugo and Isabelle read in the book The Invention of Dreams about the history of film making is Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saëns. He is considered to be the first composer ever to write an official movie soundtrack for The Assassination of the Duke de Guise (1908), making ... ...
If he is deceased, then who has been winding the clocks?
After Hugo uses the tools to fix the wind-up mouse, he puts it on the counter. We see two tools next to the cup of tools on the counter. In the next shot, Georges Méliès is inspecting it and winds it up. Then, when he puts it on the counter to test it out, we see the tools are no longer in the way, though we did not see or hear them being moved.
There is only one opening credit, the film's title, which does not appear until nearly 15 minutes into the film.
