Yuri Lotmn (1993-1922) is the founder of the Moscow-Tartu school. He has a distinguished role in introducing and developing the “Theory of Intercultural Semiotics”. In Lotman’s opinion, cultural semiotics considers each text as a cultural totality. The existing signs in the text could indicate the way in which the significances are produced to achieve a certain specific meanings in a culture. Hence, cultural semiotics can choose many texts that belong to a social and historical ambiance for recognizing the cultural and social infrastructures of that period. In fact, it could be an analytic approach, which envisages the cultural productions of a particular section and the survey of intertextual relations, interactions and dynamic relationships between them.  In this article, we rely on the movie The Private Life of Mr. and Mrs. M. (2011) directed by Ruhollah Hejazi as a cultural product of a particular period. The analysis of this text's themes and its dynamic relationship with other texts shows a considerable part of the cultural phenomenon in this period. Finally, this study aims to reveal common themes and processes in the meaning interdependency between these texts
