"If you believe cinema is a form of hypnotism, their music is powerfully cinematic." - Denis Villeneuve, Director
ENEMY is based on the novel THE DOUBLE by 1998 Nobel Prize winner, Jose Saramago. It is a gripping, mysterious psychological thriller by Denis Villeneuve (“Prisoners”).
Jake Gyllenhaal plays Adam, a divorced teacher, quietly living with his girlfriend. He discovers a physically identical man, an actor called Anthony, living nearby with his wife. Adam stalks his double, intending to observe from a distance, but soon the couples’ lives become intertwined, precipitating a lethal battle in which only one couple can survive.
Musically, the exciting on-the-rise composer duo of Danny Bensi & Saunder Jurriaans (“Martha Marcy May Marlene,” “Simon Killer") bring an atonal A-game of discordant cellos and oblique half notes that would make Jonny Greenwood proud, and keeps the movie tilted on its discomfiting axis.
