Ramiro is a poet and owns a bookstore in Lisbon. He isn’t doing well with either of those two things –he’s had writer’s block for a long time, and the store is visited only by friends and acquaintances–, but neither does he seem to be in crisis. Rather, he swings between a mild frustration and a certain conformity of someone who, whether for convenience or pessimism, doesn’t expect much from life. And so, the facility of Ramiro, the film, lies in finding within the apparent everyday monotony of the main character’s life, the glow of the uniqueness in each of his moves. Manuel Mozos accompanies with slow warmth the hours Ramiro spends at the bar with his friends, discovering his relationship with his grandmother and with a young pregnant neighbor. With all that, the film extends its embrace to give warmth to an entire gang of beautiful losers who haven’t yet realized they can be happy having one another.
He was born in Lisbon in 1959, and graduated from the Escola Superior de Teatro e Cinema, majoring in editing, which is his main activity. He currently works at the National Moving Images Archive Department in the Cinemateca Portuguesa. He directed A Glória de Fazer Cinema em Portugal (2014, 30º Festival), and Cinzas e Brazas (2015).
