Some time I watch movies from other countries. Watching movies I feel that whether they are from different country

Some time I watch movies from other countries. Watching movies I feel that whether they are from different country or mine country, they serve the basic purpose of entertainment. In addition movies also reflect the culture of its country. Let me explain my point of view.

One time, I saw a movie made in USA about the freedom movement that showed how the people of USA sacrificed their lives to get freedom. People of my country also sacrificed their lives for freedom. Another time, I saw a movie from Bangladesh; it also showed people fighting to get freedom. Seeing these films demonstrated to me that every country want freedom. They can do any thing to get their rights, although their way are different.

Entertainment is the main goal of film no matter from which country they come. People of different countries like different types of music and dance, some dance and music are traditional of their culture, but they are part of movies to entertain people. Every country has comedy and cartoon movies. One time, I saw a movie from Pakistan that showed people playing cricket. Another time, I saw movie from china that showed people playing football. Seeing these films demonstrated to me that people of every country enjoy playing some sort of sports, although their favorite sports might be different.

Crime is also committed in every country. Punishing the criminals is also the common goal. I have often seen in movies from other countries. Laws of each country are different. In some countries, punishment for stealing is two-year sentence in prison. In other countries, law require a thief to do community service. But basic aim of each country is to punish criminals and correct them.

The movies I have seen showed me that no matter what country they come from, people everywhere want to be entertained, fight for their rights, and punish criminals. Basic needs of all of us are same.
