Adam Bell is a Toronto area History college professor. He is a rather somber man, largely because he is stuck in a routine, which includes a relationship with his live-in girlfriend, Mary. While watching a rental movie, he spots an actor in a bit part that looks like him. He becomes obsessed with finding out about this double of his. He learns that the actor's stage name is Daniel Saint Claire, whose legal name is Anthony Claire. Claire is a Toronto based actor with only a few on-screen credits, and is married to a woman named Helen who is currently several months pregnant. Adam then becomes obsessed with meeting Claire, who he learns upon first sighting that they look exactly the same, from the facial hair to a scar each has, but Claire who outwardly is more "put together" than Adam. Their lives become intertwined as Claire himself ends up becoming obsessed with Adam, but in a slightly different way. Written by

When Anthony is looking up Adam's contact information online, he views the UGT FACULTY listings page where all the faulty names are rightly listed alphabetically until we arrive at Adam's name, where his last name, Bell, is listed between Shaver and Tyler.
We also see that several of the presumably fake phone numbers have question marks for numbers, including both Adam's cell number (905-569-4?33) and office number (416-9?8-1979).
We also see that the name after Adam's, Ewin Tyler, is listed twice and with unique contact information. But when Helen is then looking at the same screen in the next scene, the first Ewin Tyler name has been replaced with Sam Singleton, with the exact same information listed as was for the previous Ewin Tyler.

"Enemy" is not a good movie, but has an intriguing story by José Saramago. For me, a good movie is able to present the story with neither the need of reading the novel not researching explanation in Internet. "Enemy" is a movie where the viewer needs to watch with attention, seek explanation in Internet (for example, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9AWkqRwd1I provides a good explanation of the movie) and watch it again. Therefore the screenwriter fails in his script. Anyway it is intriguing and when you see it for the second time, it is worthwhile. My vote is seven.
