Cannes: Fox Intl. Productions Boards Mexican Teen Movie (EXCLUSIVE)

Emigration drama tipped as potential breakout in Mexico

Betting on a title that is being tipped as a potential big breakout this fall in Mexico, Fox Intl. Productions  (FIP) has teamed with Mexico’s Beanca Films on “Guten Tag, Ramon,” about a Mexican teen who flies to Germany, and finally finds friends, a kind of family, dignity and respect.

Fox Intl. Productions will co-produce “Guten Tag Ramon” and will handle distrbution in all of Latin America, including Mexico, where it will release “Guten Tag, Ramon” this fall. It will also distribute in the U.S. and Germany.
Structured as a Mexico-German co-production, and written and directed by Mexico’s Jorge Ramirez-Suarez (“Rabbit On the Moon”), “Guten Tag” toplines Kristyan Ferrer (“Sin Nombre,” “Days of Grace”), Germany’s Ingeborg Schoener (“The Cow and I”), Arcelia Ramirez (“Instructions Not Included”) and Oscar-nominated Adriana Barraza (“Babel”).
‘Guten Tag, Ramón’ tells a story in “The Intouchables” vein of 18-year-old Ramon, a young man from a small Mexican town who travels to Frankfurt, Germany. Surviving on the streets and experiencing winter for the first time, he accidentally meets lonely 80-year-old Ruth, and the two develop a funny, touching, and unlikely friendship.
Juan Carlos Lazo, managing director of Twentieth Century Fox Mexico, said: “It has a very powerful and universal message about friendship and human solidarity.”
“Like ‘Instructions Not Included,’ “Guten Tag, Ramon” is “aspirational, about someone who betters himself. And it combines masterfully the two film types Mexicans look for most: Comedy and drama,” commented Luis Vargas, Rentrak managing director, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Central America.
