Calling all of you analogue fans to watch HUGO 3D, the best film of 2011 as declared by National Board of Review. Set in Paris of the 1930s, it tells the story of a young orphan who fixes clocks and other gadgets.
HUGO is based on Brian Selznick’s novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. The story is about a 12 year-old orphan who lives in a Paris train station set in the 1930’s. He is abandoned by his uncle to run the clocks at the station. Hugo fixes clocks and other gadgets including an automaton found by his late father. During his adventure to fix the broken automaton, he meets a grouchy old man and his goddaughter who runs a tinker toy shop in the station.
The movie is brilliant and the actors are magnificent. It has a stunning cinematography. HUGO is not only about the adventures of a young boy, but also about analogue cameras, stop motion, black and white, silent movie, and anything analogue! Très magnifique. The cinema was full—I’m sure they were a bunch of creative and cinephile fans!
HUGO has made me fall in love with analogue cameras even more. The best movies are the ones that inspire. I’ve bought a LomoKino recently and haven’t had a chance to use it yet and this movie makes me want to run home and grab my LomoKino. However, I can’t afford to miss the movie!
