Roma – an Oscar-Winning Childhood Story

The film “Roma” won Oscars in cinematography and direction, with most of the plot consisting of childhood memories of director Alfonso Cuarón. Previously, Cuarón has directed a movie about cosmic space (“Gravity”) and the road movie “Your Mama, too”. Everyone knew a lot about him as a successful director but understood little about his background. But Roma is from a strictly different perspective, with a plot about the fate of a tender woman in a raucous world, filmed in black and white without unnecessary distractions and with compelling cinematography, a unique aesthetic, and clarity of dialogue. The film reflects not only the memories but also the feelings of Alfonso Cuarón, which makes this one of his most subtle works.
