Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Though writer-director Paul Mazursky attempted to remake a Jean Renoir film with Down and Out in Beverly Hills, his Enemies: A Love Story actually comes closer to capturing Renoir's brand of resonant, humanistic farce. Based on Isaac Bashevis Singer's novel, Enemies is a rich, bittersweet blend of cultural and personal observations held together by a career-best performance by Ron Silver as a man trying to juggle three wives. No less important are the skilled actresses who portray the women in his life, Anjelica Huston, Lena Olin and Margaret Sophie Stein; Huston and Olin would be nominated for Academy Awards. Enemies: A Love Story may ultimately be Mazursky's most lasting contribution to cinema -- high praise for the director who gave us Blume in Love and An Unmarried Woman.
