Hugo is an orphan who lives in a railway station in 1930’s Paris. His father had maintained the station’s large and varied network of clocks and Hugo takes on this job unofficially. There is a sinister edge to this film as Hugo is continually forced to escape from the station inspector (played by Sacha Baron Cohen) who wants to send Hugo to an orphanage. A magical story which is also homage to the pioneers of cinema, a theme which is close to Scorsese’s heart.
