Photocopy is film that revolves around an old man "Mahmoud Photocopy" who has an empty life and deals with the society that he has seen evolve around him. The story shows the real meaning of life and ironically how an old man can make the most out of it.
The film is very touching and easy to relate to no matter how old you are, the performances are all great excluding none. the music and the set locations are remarkable.
It's sad to know that such a meaningful film is not getting much recognition in the modern Egyptian cinema.
