Enemies, A Love Story Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Marshall Fine

Nobel laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer wrote often about despair and redemption, the subjects of his novel on which this Paul Mazursky film is based. Ron Silver plays a Holocaust survivor who has moved to America and married the Polish gentile who hid him from the Nazis. An intellectual, he is not satisfied with this simple peasant woman and so he has an affair with a sultry émigré (Lena Olin). His life is then made more complicated by the reappearance of his wife from the old country (Anjelica Huston), who he thought had died in the Nazi death camps. Mazursky and his terrific cast find the pain, irony, and sad humor in this material, capturing Singer's tone and bringing it to life.

Academy Awards

Enemies, A Love Story received Academy Awards nominations for Best Performance By an Actress in a Supporting Role (Lena Olin), Best Performance By an Actress in a Supporting Role (Anjelica Huston) and Best Screenplay Based on Material From Another Medium (Roger L. Simon, Paul Mazursky).
