O homem que copiava (2005)



Critic Consensus: Though it has some nice moments, The Man Who Copied spins out of control by the second half and wears out its welcome.

Audience Reviews for O homem que copiava

I really liked this movie. Lázaro Ramos did a good job. This movie gives you a look through the mentality of the Brazilian lower-middle class. The plot was interesting and some parts are sort of funny.

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

The Man Who Copied is a curiosity. It doesn't stick with a genre, and it's unclear to me if this is a fault or an asset. Jorge Furtado, the director, plays fast and loose with the story. He throws bits of this and that into the mix all of which adds up to an uncatogorizable film. Is it a thriller? A comedy? A romantic comedy? It's hard for me to even match this up with any other movie I've seen. I see this film as more of a sketch than an oiled machine, and yet, there's considerable depth to the story. (The story stuck with me for a while, and I spent some time discussing it with the friend I saw it with.) It's the depth, the incongruities that kept me thiking about it, that makes me like it. The Man Who Copied is anything but. It's an original.
