Hugo Brought Down To An Uninspired Costume Movie
11 September 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Based on the acclaimed Victor Hugo novel of the same name, this 2012 adaptation is one of the many that have been brought to screen. The story of Gwynplaine, a young performer who has a cut on his face resembling a smile, and lives on a traveling caravan with a blind girl who he himself had found as a child, and Ursus, the creator and narrator of their performances, as well as their "adoptive father". But Gwynplaine soon discovers he is of noble descent, and he is suddenly catapulted into luxury: but his love for Ursus and the girl makes him want to return to his previous life. Useless in many ways, muffled and emotionless, this new adaptation adds little new or exciting inventions to the traditional storyline. If Gerard Depardieu is able to give a credible performance, the other two protagonists for the most part act as if they were buried in sand. To accentuate the mediocrity of the product, a dialogue that is a never-ending bulking of clichés.
