Doppelgängers as characters seem to be in vogue at the moment.
There is of course the magnificent series Orphan Black, starring Tatiana Maslany as half a dozen clones. Richard Ayoade’s The Double, starring Jesse Eisenberg and based on the Fyodor Dostoyevsky novella, is getting a wider release this summer.
Tonight, Zebra Kino in Konstanz is showing Enemy, directed by Denis Villeneuve and based on a José Saramago novel. The thriller pits Jake Gyllenhaal against Jake Gyllenhaal. The trailer (above) really focuses on sex and spiders, but I hope there is more to it. Tonight is the last screening at 9 pm, so you might want to join me there if you’re interested and in the region.
