Plot – Spoilers:
A history teacher Adam finds his days cyclical teaching the same rote and having the same type of sex with a woman Mary who drops by his apartment in the evenings. A casual conversation with a colleague leads to him watching a film in which he notices a bellboy who looks exactly like him. Adam now becomes obsessed with finding out more about this actor.
Normally in a scenario like this, you’d be like – ok, so some twin? What’s interesting about that. But that’s what makes Enemy such a good watch. The simple concept of a possible twin is approached in a manner that keeps you on edge while piling on the tension.
The safest assumption to make is that Adam and Anthony are one person. From here, you can go in multiple directions.
