** In fact, back then, train stations pretty much ''were'' airports. Security is doubly important.

* Assuming that it was some form of law enforcement that informed Hugo's uncle Claude that his brother had died, and thus that he had to go collect his nephew, why did the people inspecting his death later ask Inspector Gustave if he had any other relatives? And even if they didn't happen to know themselves, why do they think a security officer at the train station would know that much about him?

** He was able to rebuild it through a combination of remembering parts from the notebook, working in a booth belonging to the man who happened to have built the automaton, and experience from when he'd helped his father in the clock store where he used to work.

** If I recall correctly, the inspector didn't see Hugo's face during the first chase scene - it seems the dog did, for a brief second when he tracked Hugo down at the toy booth, but all Inspector Gustave would've seen after Hugo started running would be the back of his head.

** Common cause. It's mentioned that Georges was the first filmmaker to use the medium to recreate dreams. He may have had a dream in his early life about a spacecraft striking the man in the moon (probably after reading FromTheEarthToTheMoon) and it stuck with him. He created an automaton capable of drawing that dream along with his signature. When he had the technical ability later, he recreated it as a film.

** Also worth mentioning is that, in the book, Hugo does eventually get the notebook back; it turns out Papa Georges faked burning it.

** I had assumed working in the toy shop having access to all the clockwork pieces he could get his hands on is how he was able to complete it. As stated above, the notebook belonged to his father and being the only thing he had left of him he had probably read through that book in every free moment he had and had the book memorised.
