In a dark futuristic world, literature, reading, and independent thought have been outlawed. The government has gone so far as to employ a special league of firemen to burn all books on sight. But when one otherwise obedient fireman meets an intriguing revolutionary, she provokes him to question the legitimacy of his actions. Tensions mount when he blatantly transgresses the very laws he's employed to enforce, and his terrified wife becomes an informant. Because the subject of censorship seems to be perpetually contemporary, one can argue that the significant social impact of 'Farenheit 451' will forever be current. François Truffaut's film is based on the best-selling novel by Ray Bradbury.

 Still thinking about it

'Fahrenheit 451': the temperature at which paper will spontaneously combust. In a dystopian near-future, books are banned, and it's the job of firemen to locate and set fire to literature everywhere.

It's so easy to make this film sound terrible. The acting is stilted; the story doesn't make much sense (even by the standards of 40 years ago); and some of the scenes are ridiculous (the toy-like fire engine racing around the countryside).

Yet, I'm still thinking about this film several weeks later. It has a character that's unique, and some of the scenes manage to be daft and chilling at the same time, which is quite a feat.

I'm not convinced the film warrants a rating of 4 stars, but 3 felt disrespectful. Also, the extras on the DVD were a pleasant surprise - it's always reassuring to hear of an actor and director hating each other, rather than the usual fawning, gushing love-fest!
