Another gem in this years selection at May Madness, by Grimmfest. A Perfect Enemy tell the story of successful architect Jeremiasz Angust ( played by Tomasz Kot ) who’s car is approached on his return trip to Paris Airport by a overly chatty girl called Texel Textor ( brilliantly played by Athena Strates). To say that Texel is strange, is an understatement. Not since Glenn Closes portrayal in 1987s Fatal Attraction have I been this nervous about an onscreen character. Texel seems to be looking for a captive audience who she then forces her stories of life onto and poor Jeremy seems to be losing the battle for some peace and quiet as at every turn there she is , trying to force conversation from him and upon him. After missing his flight from Paris to Warsaw (because of Texel, Jeremy finds himself trapped in a VIP airport lounge with her and he struggles to get rid of the annoying stranger. Although the meeting seems fortuitous, soon there be a turn that will transform the character of that encounter into something much more sinister and criminal.
Watching A Perfect Enemy, I initially had no idea where the characters were taking me, but this is part of the beauty of the film and very clever storytelling (based on a novel by Amélie Nothomb ) Part stalker movie, part ‘Beyond Sunrise’, A Perfect Enemy is a beautifully shot, atmospheric very intelligent character drama and well worth checking out. You can watch all the monster movies and supernatural horrors you want, but is there anything scarier than a mentally disturbed human being that wont leave you a lone. Find out in A Perfect Enemy
