Deutsche Mexicanische Freundschaft

We watched an interesting film tonight, Guten Tag, Ramon, a Mexican-German co-production from a year or two ago. It's about a young Mexican from a poor background who somehow manages to make his way to Wiesbaden in Germany where an 'aunt' has promised him work. The aunt never materialises and without a word of German he's forced to beg on the wintry streets. To cut a long story short, he's taken in by an elderly woman and starts helping her and other elderly residents with odd jobs before the police get wind of him and put him on a plane back to Mexico. The happy ending is somewhat unlikely, and overall it's a bit whimsical, even cheesy... but a nice feel-good movie for a Friday night.
