Adam Bell is a gloomy, disheveled history teacher who’s not even interested in having sex with his beautiful girlfriend Mary. When he’s watching a movie recommended by a colleague, he discovers his double in a bit part, an actor named Anthony Clair. For the first time since long does Adam feel exited about something. He decides to go find Mr. Clair. When the two identical men meet, their lives get intertwined in a weird and irrevocable way. This gorgeous adaptation of The Double, the 2002 novel by Nobel Laureate José Saramago, breathes new life into the doppelganger genre. The sweeping, surreal approach by Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies, Prisoners) confirms his reputation as one of the most talented contemporary filmmakers. There’s something sinister lurking under the slick surface of things in Enemy. The dark dreams and motives of the protagonists slowly seep through to reality and turn the truth into a lie. With Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain) as Adam / Anthony and Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds, Now You See Me) as Mary.
