Movie Summary

Director:
Richard Ayoade
Released:
2014
Rating:
Not Available
Simon is a timid man, scratching out an isolated existence in an indifferent world. He is overlooked at work, scorned by his mother, and ignored by the woman of his dreams. He feels powerless to change any of these things. The arrival of a new co-worker, James, serves to upset the balance. James is both Simons exact physical double and his opposite - confident, charismatic and good with women. To Simons horror, James slowly starts taking over his life.

    The Guardian Henry Barnes

    The Double isn't an original idea. It wasn't even in Dostoyevsky's time. But it's a great story. And Ayoade has produced a brilliant copy.

    indieWIRE Eric Kohn

    The story arrives at a satisfying emotional conclusion with wonderfully thoughtful ramifications.

    The Telegraph Tim Robey

    It's a bureaucratic noir nightmare that may put you more readily in mind of Kafka, albeit with a tone of tongue-in-cheek bleakness that's bracing and funny – at least at first.
