Village Voice by

In spite of some genuinely charming performances, The Man Who Copied is about as engaging as a paper jam.

Christian Science Monitor by David Sterritt

Furtado's comic thriller is a telling commentary on modern avarice in Brazil and elsewhere, which touches on everything from "The Simpsons" to "Rear Window" along the way. Too bad it runs out of ideas before the overlong story is over.

Los Angeles Times by Kevin Thomas

Two movies in one, but it's no bargain. A charming romantic comedy... transforms awkwardly into a hedonistic crime thriller, with the two genres violently butting heads.
