  1. Marvellous cinematography (tones, b/w filtering, contrast, etc), classic compositions but daring editing (especially for The time)! Than you fi this occasion to meet Indian cinema, which reminds me vividly of Italian Neo-realism. It was a revelation! If I can share some Romanian Neo realism (but from the 80-s), one movie which has the same general theme, of growing up of a gicted boy crom a Village in Romania in the 1940-s, is the period drama “Morometii” by Stere Gulea (1985), a film who also deserve an Oscar. Also in Black and White, with simple but very powerful cinematography.
