Automaton - HUGO

Hi V ... If you want to see a movie that will stay with you forever, book tickets to HUGO. I saw it 
last night and it was enchantment from start to finish.  A complete story of promise, hope and triumph
against adversity.  It is set in 1930's Paris and tells the story of an orphan who lives in the walls of a 
train station.   Best seen on the big screen. Cheers J.

  2. Okay it is on my list. But I start my 6 choices for the French FF this coming Wednesday. And then to that I add Hugo, The Artist, J Edgar Hoover, A Week with Marilyn. The cinema will up my ticket price if they twig ...

    umm ... what is this image .. other than quirky ...

    1. Sounds like you need to hammer in the tent pegs in front of the cinema Julie. I can recommend Hoover. The image is of a wind up toy that jumps accross the table. An automaton of sorts. It will make more sense once you see Hugo. It really is a top movie. We saw it in 2D but am told it was pretty special in 3D.

    1. I believe there is a series of these gizmos. My daughter bought mine for me.

  5. Hi J,
    I'm LOL because guess what is sitting on my coffee table begging to be watched? HUGO! I decided it was cheaper to buy it than to pay to take 5 grandkids to the movies. I can hardly wait. Your review has been anticipating it for sure. I don't know what that little gizmo is but you photographed it beautifully.
    Bon weekend,
    V

  7. What a nice photo. I like the light. The simplicity. And the legs. I REALLY want to see HUGO. It's next on my Netflix queue. Glad to hear the review.
