After coming within one question of winning a game show, 18-year-old Mumbai "slumdog" Jamal is arrested on suspicion that he cheated. While in custody, he regales an inspector with tales of street life and the story of the woman he loved and lost.

This movie won practically everything at the Oscars, which definitely means something. Watching it was like watching a race, everything running at full speed, with very different layers of the Indian society, sometimes with sense of humor, sometimes questioning the system. It is really smart and flows beautifully over the different stages of the life of Jamal. Also, back then, the cinematography, the editing, the sound design was overwhelming as if you could feel the textures, smell the intense smell of each situations, very sensorial. Overall a great movie.
