„The Enemy” juggles with several themes and wants to expose a relationship between two brothers that stands all the chances to be broken. Lack of communication, empathy and understanding sets in between the two during the story that develops in an environment which also seems to be aimed to make things harder in the limit-situation the two find themselves in.

„The Enemy”, made by a theme of young cineasts at the beginning of their carrers, is one of those interesting independent short films added by Cinepub to their collection of Romanian shorts online.
