A movie is a window from which we can tell a country. Even if we did not go to
A movie is a window from which we can tell a country. Even if we did not go to a country, we will know a lot of things about it by watching its movies. Movies are a great media to know a country.
First of all, we can know the distinct character of the people in a country from a movie. For instance, in a Chinese movie, when a boy begins to love a girl and wants to invite her to a party, he normally asks one of his friends to send the invitation. The shy character of Chinese is expressed in the movie. On the contrary, it is more likely that in an American movie, a American boy will express his love directly to the girl. As we know, the American are more open and seldom hide themselves.
Secondly, the latest films can show us the current status of a country, such as whether a country is poor or rich, is in peace or in a war, etc. We know that America is a quite developed country because we can see cars, computers appear frequently in American films. If bikes are often shown in a country`s film, we can definitely judge that is a developing country.
In conclusion, from films of a country, I cannot only know the features of the people in the country, but also the status of the country. Therefore, I can get to know a country by watching its film instead of going there.
