Here are a few lessons you can learn from the film:
- All cultures other than your culture will seem to jar when you first encounter them.
- You may strike a chord of friendship immediately with a few, but you may also encounter people who are rude to you.
- If you attempt to speak their language it will cut ice faster.
- You cannot push your loved ones to like the culture, they have to strike their equation on their own.
- You may find help from strange places and people you may not even imagine.
- It takes time to get used to a culture.
- Never paint a culture bad based on few individual behaviours. There are people who behave badly in your culture too.
- Every culture has deep mysteries and wisdom from which you can learn and broaden your horizon.
- A burning, positive goal within the context of the new culture can change your perspective completely.
- Search for things you can take into your own culture. The more you take, the better chances you will have to give them from your culture.
- Perfect practice makes you flawless.
- In a competition, winning is not everything.
- Discipline comes before mastery.
- Honesty and integrity will ultimately triumph.
- Winning over your fear of losing is more important than winning itself.
- Every culture is good, you have a great opportunity to learn and grow.
