Having seen the movie Mr Baseball I find that the movie aims at delivering the difference between two distinctive cultures especially how culture influences us unconsciously in our daily lives In the movie the baseball player Jack Elliot is a representative of American culture We can notice that Jack Elliots social intercourse includes the features inherited from this kind of culture self-centeredness and fulfilling an achievement in an enjoyable way The Manager Uchiyama San however is a traditional Japanese who emphasizes on teamwork and on a serious attitude towards work It is very appealing to spot how these two clashing cultures meet By expressing greeting for instance the American will shake hands with a new friend while the Japanese only nod Their ways of table manners also show a great difference in their own cultures The Japanese show politeness by eating as loudly as possible on the contrary the American by keeping quiet And as Jacks girl friend Hiroko says Dont pour your drink in Japan which is paradoxical to the American DIY culture These traits are not very difficult to detect from two people with diverse culture But it is quiet hard to detect in the same society because it is so inherent that little attention should be paid to Based on the aforementioned instances we can conclude that the take-for-granted culture can never be wholly conscious in the same group of society Since there is more than we are conscious of and it cannot be found and changed until we meet one who is under another take-for-granted-culture influence In this sense the only way of understanding culture is we have to be detached from one culture and embrace the diversity of culture
