There are so many movies related to the modes of living and culture in which they were made, whereas other movies are not connected with them at all. I have learned many things from those movies but I would like to discuss two main things based on the movies I have seen lately.
First one is the history of other countries. I have watched a series movie which backdrop is 19 centuries rural area of America. That story is about a family which is consist of three daughters and parents. They live harmoniously and sometimes overcome predicaments with cooperation based on their each other`s love. I can see the gradual process of industrialization and origin and procedure of Civil War in America that time.
Second one is the culture related to the modes of living and perspectives of world at those times. The same movie above illuminates, during the times, people`s thinking about government, society, education, and etc. and their behaviors and attitudes related to money, women, children and so on.
