Audience Reviews for O homem que copiava

    In the age where our cinematographic vision and sensibilities are blurred beyond repair by senseless, worse than junk box office nonsense like Spiderman, Harry Potter etc (sorry fans :) ), it is nice to learn that a film has been made in Brazil by Jorge Furtado which talks about a common man from a realistic point of view. It's a modern fable, with touches of humor and sarcasm. The narrative is mixed with cartoon combining the life of the main character with the things that he copies. Lazaro Ramos is our rebel with a cause. He plays the role of a poor boy who wishes to triumph in life. Seeing him in face countless adversities with a smile on his face, we get a smile too. Both the female leads are excellent. On the one hand Leandra Leal is cute with girl next door appearance. On the other hand Luana Piovani is the ethereal femme fatale ready for all. Excellent film.Totally recommended.

    What to say? What to say about something that reached perfection? Are words enough? The 5 stars surely aren't. I guess the thing that most upsets me is the fact that only 38 people, out of thousands, have seen this... So then I make this little experiment... I click on <i>City of God</i> below and... Ta-dah! 4814! I mean, I understand the diference of recognition, I do. But <i>The Man Who Copied</i>, without any type of comparisions, is as brilliant, as perfect as the same year's 'World Hit'! It has the same social relevance, shown through André's salary references, the fact that he has to steal to buy a 17$ jacket... Obviously the crime aspect is there, but without any kind of exagerated violence. Than it's also a comedy, a smart and touching one, that never makes you cry... On the contrary, it puts one big fat smile on your face. It can be hilarious at times, like the chicken scene (the other 37 will know what I mean...). Of course all this demands a talented cast. 'Talented' will probably not be enough in this case. Lázaro Ramos' performance is nothing less than stunning, showing the versatile actor that he is, with the perfect way he plays André, the shy 19 year old kid who works as a photocopier on a crapy store for his monthly 100$ wage, and that by night goes to his own world, with his drawing escapes or spying on his neighours (especially Silvia). The spying scenes are an obvious reference and trivute to Hitchcock's <i>Rear Window</i> by director Jorge Furtado. The rest of the cast doesn't desapoint either. Leandra Leal as the beautifully awkward Silvia, Luana Piovani as the jaw-dropping (like herself) Marinês or Pedro Cardoso as the funny Cardoso. <a href="http://s172.photobucket.com/albums/w25/EarthlyAlien/?action=view¤t=1_1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i172.photobucket.com/albums/w25/EarthlyAlien/1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> Jorge Furtado made what any filmmaker aspires, or at least should! Something unique. Actually sent something new to the world. A smart, touching film, always unpretensious, with some interesting and unpredictable twists and one of those perfect endings that, like I said, brings a smile to even the most heartless' face...

    A lighthearted, charming, very Brazilian and thoroughly entertaining little gem.
