2013 · Canada · Directed by Denis Villeneuve
Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) and starring Oscar-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Source Code), Enemy is a mesmerising psychological thriller based on the novel ‘The Double’ by Nobel laureate José Saramago.
Jake Gyllenhaal plays Adam, a university lecturer nearing the end of his relationship with girlfriend Mary (Mélanie Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down the actor and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle…
Dark, gripping and pulsating with atmosphere, Enemy is a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller that has drawn comparisons to both Lynch and Cronenberg.
