This image is taken from Martin Scorsese's magnificent 2011 movie, Hugo. I've just finished watching it (for the second time this week) and am simply enchanted by the fantastical scenes of 1930s Paris in the winter. This historical adventure drama was originally in 3D, but even on HD television today, the images are still quite spellbinding. The story is based on Brian Selznick's novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, about an orphan boy who lives alone in Gare Montparnasse where he spends his days winding up the station's clocks and trying to fix a mechanical man automaton that his father had left to him. A mystery about the automaton quickly unfolds and leads Hugo into an unexpected adventure. If you haven't watched it yet and are in the mood for a cosy & heartwarming adventure film, make sure to check it out. It's one of my favourite recent films involving Paris.
