Wikipedias description of Neorealism: 

"Neorealism is characterized by a general atmosphere of authenticity. Andre Bazin, a French film theorist and critic, argued that neorealism portrays: truth, naturalness, authenticity, and is a cinema of duration. 
The necessary characteristics of neo-realism in film include

  • a definite social context;
  • a sense of historical actuality and immediacy;
  • political commitment to progressive social change;
  • authentic on-location shooting as opposed to the artificial studio;
  • a rejection of classical Hollywood acting styles; extensive use of non-professional actors as much as possible;
  • a documentary style of cinematography"
