User Reviews

Outstanding film
27 November 2015 | by david-byrneSee all my reviews

This film reminds the viewer it is the little things in life that are the most important. A very well made film (nothing cheap about it) and the acting and direction are terrific. The bloke who plays Ramon is the perfect character for the role, as are all the other actors and actresses in the film. The film has many different angles to it - cruelty and kindness, wealth and poverty, but kindness certainly is the most powerful aspect of this film. I cannot believe there are so few reviews of this film, but I guess Americans don't think much of films unless they are talking American English (as shown when they dubbed the Aussie classic Max Mad in American accents). Forget English, "Buen Dia, Ramon" could not be made if were not in Spanish and German. The film is so good, after a while you forget you are reading subtitles. This is the best film I have seen all year and it is less than a month to Christmas. A must see for anyone who has a heart. The end will leave you with a warm feeling and maybe a few tears.
