Synopsis In ENEMY, we don't find a clear debt to any particular doubles-themed work of literature or cinema, but rather echoes of the concerns and stylistic penchants of directors such as Bergman, Bunuel, Polanski, Kieslowki and Antonioni...[A] tense, surreal and somber thriller...[Gyllenhaal] effectively limns his subtly turned mirror-image performances, and he's ably aided by Laurent and especially Gadon.3 stars out of 4 -- [Gyllenhaal] infuses each man with so many subtle but distinctive differences, we’re never confused about which of the Two Jakes we’re seeing onscreen. It’s quietly magnificent work.4 stars out of 5 -- ENEMY finds fresh, deeply unnerving ground. And Jake Gyllenhaal gives two spellbinding performances.Jake Gyllenhaal gives not one magnetic, alert yet opaque performance here. He gives two.Adapted from author José Saramago's novel THE DOUBLE, director Denis Villeneuve's enigmatic drama ENEMY stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a detached college professor whose life becomes hopelessly intertwined with that of his doppelganger -- a sexually insatiable actor. Adam Bell (Gyllenhaal) is a socially isolated man who's more comfortable lecturing to college students than he is making love to his lustful girlfriend Mary (Mélanie Laurent). One day, on the advice of a colleague, Adam sits down to watch a romantic comedy and what he sees on the screen leaves him deeply disturbed: A supporting player in the film credited as Anthony Clair (also Gyllenhaal), is Adam's spitting image -- right down to the distinctive scar on both of their chests. Compelled to track down his onscreen look-a-like, Adam soon locates Anthony in Mississauga, and begins obsessively tracking his every move. Later, Adam's ongoing search for answers prompts him to pay a visit to his own eccentric mother (Isabella Rossellini), as well as and Anthony's pregnant wife (Sarah Gadon). But it isn't until Adam and Anthony finally come face-to-face that the details connecting them become truly uncanny.
