Description:

The paper discusses how the past century has been characterized by fast industrialization, the rise of global economy and markets as well as by increasing power of corporations and in this socio-economic situation, crises of national, cultural and individual identities have emerged as serious issues. The paper examines "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town" and "Local Hero", two movies which deal with these conflicts. The paper relates that Prof. Feldman remarks in his lecture readings that both movies treat three conflicts: a) rural vs. urban, b) city slickers vs. small- town people and c) the issue of identity. The paper asserts that these three conflicts can be found in both movies despite the fact that between them lies about half a century.
