The Heimlich maneuver


Manolo Ramos Director


    The Heimlich maneuver is a faux documentary built around Alex Pareja, a writer who chalked up a huge success with his first novel, inspired by the absurd death of an ex-girlfriend.

    10 years later, Alex receives a proposal to adapt his book for film.

    A low cost comedy about the ups and downs of creation and a “tender hearted” satire of Barcelona’s cool milieus.
