Director Denis VilleneuveYear 2014Genre(s) Thriller
Adam Bell is a fairly ordinary man in a loving relationship and with a stable job. However, his life is turned upside down when he watches a movie and sees an actor bearing an uncanny resemblance to him. Shocked, he decides to track down the actor, named Anthony St. Claire, at his address but becomes spooked when he calls his house and is immediately assumed to be Anthony by his wife. With Adam's own girlfriend becoming increasingly suspicious by his jumpy and distracted behaviour and his mother insisting that he is her one and only son, Adam decides to meet his doppelganger. However, things don't go as smoothly as planned when Anthony decides he wants to sleep with Adam's partner. With his obsession consuming his life and harming the people around him, Adam must evaluate himself mentally in order to get his life back.
This mind-bending thriller is based on the 2002 novel 'The Double' by Jose Saramago (not to be confused with the very similar 1800s Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella of the same name). The screenplay has been adapted by Javier Gullon ('Invader', 'Hierro', 'Girls Never Call'), with direction from Denis Villeneuve ('Prisoners', 'Incendies', 'Polytechnique'). Having already been nominated for a number of awards and won a prize at the Catalonian International Film Festival, 'Enemy' is set to hit screens on in March 2014.
