Films are a mirror of a country. It depicts the life of common people in a country at a given period in history. This can be exemplified by taking a review of period films like "Elizabeth", "The Last Emperor", "Gandhi", "Lagaan" etc. These movies have not only portrayed the lives of famous individuals of their period, but they also give coverage of the people around them, the events that shaped up their personality thus giving us insight of the life style in that particular period.
They not only depicts the period in history but also in present. Globally many countries have undergone so many changes recently that we can divide the time period in cluster of 10 years each. The films arrived in each decade portrays the life style of the people in that decade. Thus proving a hallmark of changes in nations thinking, economy, fashion etc. Eg: "RajaniGandha", "Aandhi" etc.
Films reflect the attitude of the particular nations citizens. For example once I had seen one Japanese movie about a woman in transition phase during her divorce. It exemplifies the reaction and outlook of man/woman/child and society in total, towards the painful episode like divorce. I have also came across a movie in my country on same topic. The reactions of people to divorce in this movie is totally different than the one I saw in Japanese movie. This can be a classic example of the difference in the cultures of two countries.
Thus the movies can tell us much more than expected about the country’s culture, people. They also make us aware of the current issues in country, the trend, the fashion prevailing in country.
