“One of the most legendary directors of our time takes you on an extraordinary adventure.” was one of the tagline used to advertise this amazing film, and it does not break this promise.

This is a story about Hugo Cabret (Asa Butterfield), a boy living in a train station in Paris during the art deco days of the early 1930s. This is no ordinary train station, as it is filled with all kinds of shops that welcome travelers from all over the Continent. There is a bakery, a cafe, a flower shop, a live band, and much more. Hugo is being looked after by his drunken uncle, but it is he whom keeps the clocks at the station well-oiled and running. He learned the skills on how to work with gears and spring from his father, a clockmaker. This is the family business.
