I think what contributes to the"painted" look of the high ISO picture is the very restricted dynamic range , like in a watercolour or pastel painting (not oil painting with glossy finnish). IN BW film you can get a similar effect by underexposing the film by 4 or more stops and brutally overdeveloping it.

I am actually happy I'm not shooting film. I find the development process with digital, even with all its flexibility, undo and even complete "go back to start" possibilities, demanding enough. With film I would just have to hand the entire development process over to someone else, and hope they achieved what I was after. (Which, btw, I sometimes wish I could do with digital. "Here, make this image look nice please". :p)
