Money plays a leading role in this fast-moving cinematic experiment. André (Lázaro Ramos), a 19-year-old working in a copyshop, is in love with Silvia (Leandra Leal), a salesgirl who he watches through his telescope. To impress her, he goes to buy something in her shop. But everythingis too expensive. Furtado: “The story follows the hero’s own logic. It is a collage of genres, from comedy to drama, romance to tragedy, with lots of gags, a sonnet and a few murders. If you copy one person, it’s plagiary. If you copy300, it’s research.”
