Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Brazilian filmmaker Jorge Furtado makes his directorial debut with the romantic comedy Homen Que Copiava (The Man Who Copied). Andre (Lazaro Ramos) is a young man who likes to draw, but the only job he can get is making copies at a bookstore. His co-worker Marinez (Luana Piovani) tells him that she will only sleep with wealthy men, despite the fact that she's dating a poor salesman (Pedro Cardoso). Andre develops a crush on his neighbor Silvia (Leandra Leal), a young woman who works in a clothing store. In order to impress her, he comes up with a counterfeit scam using his only technological resource. Homen Que Copiava was shown at the 2003 San Sebastian Film Festival.
