Abstract：Due to the differences in the history, living environment, geographical landscape, religion, etc, a variety of unique cultural systems, ways of thinking and values come into being in different ethnic groups. Culture is the product of society. Different cultural background and cultural tradition make it considerably different for eastern and western people in way of thinking, value, code of conduct and way of life. Film is an expression of culture. Gua Sha Treatment is a typical film that reflects the differences between Chinese and American cultures. This thesis focuses on the family view, friends view, and the face perception reflected in the film to explore the differences between eastern and western cultures, the root causes of cultural conflicts and ways to cultural reconciliation. With the deeper knowledge of each other, conflicts caused by cultural differences will gradually reduce and the quality of communication will be further improved.
