Fahrenheit 451


Julie Christie, Oskar Werner, Cyril Cusack, Anton Diffring.
Truffaut's remarkable adaptation of Ray Bradbury's sci-fi novel about an alarming future where books are banned: they make people unhappy and burn at the temperature of the title. We witness the fireman, Montag (Werner), torn between his wife and a dissident teacher (both played by Christie) and his choices in the eternal search for happiness.
