Brilliant movie. I especially recommend the 3D version: excellent use of 3D effects without being cheesy. The casting was excellent, the direction flawless, and the spirit of the book could not have been better realized. An excellent adventure story with a payoff of understanding the origin of film. I took my 13 yr old and she loved the film as much as I and it initiated a great conversation on the history of the movies. Anyone remotely interested in the movies as an art form HAS to see this movie; everyone else should enjoy a really superb movie about a young boy's quest and the little side stories about life and love in the Paris railway station.
