The film “House of Sand and Fog” that we saw in class was great. It was amazing how seemingly small and insignificant events can quickly snowball to dramatically change the lives of those involved into that kind of problem. The film shows how both those families go through financial crisis, which involves economics and, traditional culture just because of “money”. However, this film starts with a very nice joyful; moment (a wedding), but right after that shows how Kathy suddenly finds herself homeless after her house was sold to somebody because she didn’t have money to pay the bills. On the other side we saw Behrani pick up a newspaper ad saying that” a house is up for auction”, so He and his wife and teenage son all want the house and Mr. Behrani bought it. When Kathy finds out that her house was sold. She goes to talk with the new owners and hurts herself. Her foot was bleeding and the construction people picked her up and took her inside. She felt so strange in her own house. At that point we can see that “Life isn’t always ice cream and teddy bears.” Sometimes the cowboy doesn’t ride off into the sunset. And that’s what makes this so compelling, the realism. I think the view point of this film was that many people can go through financial problems when they think everything is so perfect in this life, but money can change their whole lives.
