A beloved box office hit in Mexico, BUEN DÍA, RAMÓN (GOOD DAY, RAMON) tells the heartwarming story of a young man from a small Mexican town who travels to Germany to find work to support his family and becomes stranded without shelter or money. He struggles to survive on the streets until he meets Ruth, a lonely senior citizen with whom he develops an astonishing and touching friendship that transcends borders and prejudices.
I have to admit I am drawn to bicultural co-productions--and Buen Dia Ramon is a Mexican- German film. The layers of complexity in navigating and directing actors with different cultural and linguistic points of view enriches the movie-viewing experience. "Buen Dia, Ramon" exemplifies this. The alternating points-of-view are not only character-based but culturally based. The actors who play Ramon (Kristyan Ferrer) and the German Ruth (Schöner) are understated, with such charm and poignancy that the incredible friendship becomes credible. Ramon's story is an unexpectedly lyrical tale of perseverance, tenacity, and generosity. "Buen Dia, Ramon" considers how friendship develops despite all sorts of challenges in a deeply affecting manner. This movie is a simple pleasure that no one should miss.
