O Homem que Copiava (The Man Who Copied) Comic strip fantasy and glum working day reality mix in this unusual Brazilian film. André works making photocopies at a stationary store, shooting the breeze with his sexy co-worker Marinês and spending his nights drawing comics and spying on neighborhood good girl Sylvia. He's too shy and poor to ask Sylvia out, until he hits on the idea of making counterfeit money with the color copier after business hours. Cardoso, the equally poor, would-be lover of Marinês, helps with the scam. When André realizes Sylvia's loathsome father is spying on her in the shower, he realizes he needs to rob an armored car in order to finance an escape to Rio de Janeiro for the four of them. More windfalls and weirdness develop as romance slowly blossoms between Andre and Sylvia, and Marinês and Cardoso, and blackmail, murder, and other crimes take hold. This film is definitely attention grabbing, and Ramos is great as the shy André, holding fast to audience sympathy and attention with a minimum of sympathetic characterization. In Portuguese, with English subtitles.
