A Retrospective of the films of Francois Truffaut
Fahrenheit 451 (1966, 112 mins.)
Truffaut's first color film and the only one to be recorded entirely in English, Fahrenheit 451 is an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's acclaimed novel of the same name. In a dystopian future, fireman Montag (Oskar Werner) is charged with burning all printed matter yet soon comes to question his job thanks to the inspiration of a young woman (Julie Christie in a duel role as both the young woman and Montag's wife). A mysterious and haunting work that remains one of Truffaut's most evocative and well-known films.
