Storyline

Where do you see yourself in five years? A standard question Mahmoud is asked in a job interview, only to open up deeper questions within him about his life's purpose. A former manual worker in a printing press whose job has become obsolete due to the growing use of computers, Mahmoud is at point in his life where he begins to relate to the extinction of dinosaurs. He leads a routine life that revolves around the photocopy shop he owns, his pension, always late, and his neighbors and customers who, like him, are warm and affectionate. Nothing clouds this pretty picture except for the greedy landlord, who harbours no compassion for Mahmoud's financial difficulties, and is constantly nagging him about his late rent. Meanwhile, Mahmoud grapples with developing feelings for his neighbor, Safeya, a widow, who in turn grapples with loneliness. Their budding romance hits many roadblocks, from their advancing years, to Safeya's son's disapproval of the relationship, to Safeya's own troubled ... Written by Amir Ramses

How to live
30 September 2018 | by ahossam03See all my reviews

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.
