FAHRENHEIT 451
1966, Universal, 112 min, UK, Dir: François Truffaut

François Truffaut adapts the Ray Bradbury classic with his signature fresh spontaneity and visual ingenuity. Firefighter Guy Montag (Oskar Werner, JULES AND JIM) has the ugly duty of burning books in his dystopian, fearmongering society of the future. When he meets and falls in love with rebellious book hoarder Clarisse (Julie Christie) and is introduced to the brilliance of the confiscated material, Guy begins to question his world’s dictates and must choose to either safely comply or run away - which could bring lethal consequences.
