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.

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.

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

The Man Who Copied is an awfully stylish film. But like its hero, it foolishly tries to trick us -- and, in the end, doesn't even tell the truth to itself.

The story eventually spirals out of control -- there's much too much happening.

The movie never recovers from its jarring turn into a rushed, unconvincing caper movie with a blas, Robin Hood attitude.

Insistently quirky romp from Brazil.
