Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451

Directed by François Truffaut. Starring Julie Christie, Oskar Werner, Cyril Cusack, Anton Diffring. (1966, NR, 111 min.)

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Thu., July 22, 1999

Truffaut's only film in English is an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's science fiction novel about a future in which books are banned and their possession is a high crime. Werner plays a dutiful fireman whose job it is to burn books until one day the seeds of doubt are planted in his head. The movie is filmed in a rather low-key, dispassionate manner; the score is by Bernard Herrmann.
