Much admired by J. G. Ballard, this film adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s novel is Truffaut’s only English language film. Set in the future where all books have been outlawed by a repressive regime, firemen are the Government force whose job it is to search for and destroy all literature by burning it. One of the firemen, Montag (Werner) begins to question his own actions and slowly becomes drawn to find out why literature is considered so dangerous in a society that maintains its equilibrium by suppressing all original thought.
