Extra info about this movie

This movie is based on The Double, a novel by José Saramago. Javier Gullón wrote the screenplay.

Enemy is described as being a doppelgänger tale. This word means a “double-walker”, as in a person who is identical to another—and is sometimes suspected of being a ghostly double. (See: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/doppelganger). Have you ever met someone who looked like you? If you did, what sort of things might you ask that person? Would you want to be friends, or enemies?
