André, relatively poor, falls in love with Silvia, a neighbor whom he spy's with a telescope. Falling more and more in love with her, he begins to follow her around the city and realizes she works in a clothing shop. He works in a xerox place and makes a copy of a brand new 50 real bill in order to buy a dress from her store. This becomes a vice and he begins to photocopy more and more money, until it gets out of control. However, things begin to go wrong when he decides that photcopying is not the only way to make money... Written by
Great movie about an ordinary guy from the south of Brazil, who had an ordinary job as a photocopier operator. It's a modern fable, with touches of humor and sarcasm. The narrative is mixed with cartoon combining the life of the main character with the things that he copies. How could be life without money? Isn't it just a piece of paper that we put some value in? To think about.
