Being one of the most respected and admired film-makers of all time, Scorsese has the power to make any type of movie he pleases.
However, the recently released children's movie 'Hugo' proved to be a more personal one for him, compared to his Blockbusters of past, such as 'Casino' and 'Goodfellas'.
This is the first movie in which his twelve-year old daughter could visit him on set.
Speaking from his deluxe Manhattan office, he said:
"I have to thank my love to my wife Helen, because we have a 12-year-old daughter Francesca, [and] she said to me, 'Why don't you make a film our daughter can see for once?' So we did!"
goes on to discuss with the legendary director, with one reporter asking:
"No stabbings, no shootings, no gunfire, no one gets whacked - is Martin Scorsese going soft on us?"
"Have I mellowed, in a sense?" laughed Scorsese. "From 'Shutter Island'? The story for me was something that opened up a whole new way of approaching cinema. But primarily, it really is a connection with the children."
reports that the movie centres around an orphan who lives behind the clock of a train station in 1930s Paris. His 'want' is to simply find the missing piece of a mechanical 'automaton', and thus all sorts of adventures ensue. From the trailer one can see how visually stunning this motion picture is, as Scorsese works his cinema magic once again. Complete with an impressive cast and wonderful soundtrack, as well as being in 3-D, this Oscar-nominated film has to be one of the films of the year. 'Hugo' is in cinemas now, catch it while you still can.
