Based on the 2002 novel The Double by the late author José Saramago, Enemy breathes new life into the doppelgänger tale, confirming Quebec director Denis Villeneuve as one of our most skilled cinematic storytellers. Adam Bell (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a glum Toronto history professor who seems disinterested in everything, even in sex with his beautiful girlfriend (Mélanie Laurent). While watching a movie on the recommendation of a colleague, Adam spots his exact double, an actor named Anthony Clair in a bit part, and decides to track him down. When the two men meet, they find their lives becoming bizarrely and irrevocably intertwined.
