In a dystopian future where the government has outlawed all books, it is a fireman’s job to make sure they are all burned. When one firefighter meets a young book-lover, he begins to question his actions.

MUBI's take

For his only English-language film, and his first film in colour, Truffaut adapts a classic of American dystopian science fiction: Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. An intriguing, underrated depiction of the terror of totalitarianism, starring Oskar Werner & Julie Christie, and shot by Nicolas Roeg.
