Lazaro Ramos (Madame Sata) plays an impoverished Brazilian cartoonist working at a copy shop who hatches a scheme to woo the kind-hearted salesgirl (Luana Piovani) he's been in love with from afar. His plans are thwarted by his chronic lack of cash until the arrival of a color copier allows him to discover his talent for counterfeiting money—which quickly leads to major complications. Some critics have complained about this movie's sudden turn from romantic drama to crime thriller, a shift that didn't bother me as much as some of the characters' implausible behavior late in the film. It's uneven, but still pretty charming, and director Jorge Furtado's whimsical visual touches keep things lively. In Portuguese with subtitles. 123 min.
