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
One of two movies released in 2013 about characters meeting duplicates of themselves. The other was The Double, staring Jesse Eisenberg. The films are also both based on novels called The Double, but the books and films are otherwise unrelated. See more »
When Adam receives a phone call from Anthony in his classroom, he quickly walks to the exit hallway to talk - Adam is wearing his jacket. Immediately following the conversation we see a shot of Helen outside the building, still looking for Adam. Adam abruptly exits the building, emotionally shaken from the conversation and the subsequent agreement to meet at the Breezeway Inn - Adam's jacket is gone. See more »

Hello, darling, it's your mother. Thank you for showing me your new apartment. I'm worried about you. I mean, how can you live like that? Anyway, would you call me back? Let's get together again. I love you.

The proper way to watch this film is to be committed to working your hardest to decipher it. I believe the only real satisfaction could be from putting the pieces together in a way that comes to a logical conclusion that you feel comfortable with, because Enemy will not hand it over to you. I failed to commit this much mental fortitude and my viewing experience suffered because of it.
