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.

Ultimately produces a ragged facsimile of film noir clichs.

has enough heart to make most hopeless romantics weep with joy.

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.

The script's shifts of tone are never smoothly melded, and the lethargic pacing drags the story out mercilessly.

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

Remains never better than fair to middling pleasant.

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

This ambitious and sometimes entertaining Brazilian feature tries to pull off a tricky maneuver but doesn't quite get it done.

A major letdown.

utterly fresh and appealing from start to finish

Gleefully quirky enough that you're glad to roll with all its twists, turns, complications and coincidences.

...a structural mess and way overlong at a little more than two hours.
