O Homem Que Copiava (The Man Who Copied) Reviews

Prairie Miller
Long Island Press

It takes a lot of wit and heart to make an engaging and ferociously funny movie out of a dull dead end job. But Brazilian director Jorge Furtado pulls it off nicely.

The tone shifts from a quiet little love story to a caper film, which doesn't exactly fit together but both halves of the movie are entertaining.

The Man Who Copied unfolds into a movie with a split personality, and the second half is no reproduction of the first.

This Brazilian film starts as a quirky romantic comedy before suddenly becoming a violent crime drama. It's a radical turn, so much so that it almost goes over a cliff.

The Brazilian romantic comedy careens down such an elaborately entertaining route that I hesitate to call it a romantic comedy. It's funny all the way, but romance doesn't enter the picture until the picture is almost over.

Furtado's sense of irony is a little bit on the obvious side, but at least it strengthens the film's underlying message.

Even after it loses its way, the movie suggests a world where anything can happen and no one -- certainly not the girl of one's dreams -- is quite who he or she seems to be.

Though South American in origin, The Man Who Copied has a universal feel that, language notwithstanding, could be from anywhere.

Don't let the unwieldy title throw you - The Man Who Copied is unusual, deft and (mostly) delightful

An unconventional romance...a complex crime movie, and a jaunty comedy...few will leave this stylish, adventurous film wanting for entertainment.

Even as Andre's journey takes detours into stalking, counterfeiting, robbery and worse, the film maintains an incongruous sweetness of tone.

A big hit back home, this good-humored gem from Brazilian director Jorge Furtado manages to tackle some serious issues without sacrificing its inherently sweet nature.

Furtado's comic thriller is a telling commentary on modern avarice in Brazil and elsewhere, which touches on everything from The Simpsons to Rear Window along the way.

It's a real gem of a tale, beautifully told, and it would make a great candidate for Best Foreign Language Film at next year's Academy Awards.
