Truffaut is at his best with this film when he focuses on using his knack for striking imagery to tell the story. When he begins to over-emphasize the film (and adaptation material's) obvious message, the dialogue is a bit stiff and tedious. Still an above average and mostly linear effort from the great director.

Good book, blah movie, best soundtrack. Bernard Herrmann's one of my favorite movie composers, and I think this all-strings score is even better than his best for Hitchcock. I haven't seen the movie in years, although I've thought I should maybe give it another chance. But I listen often to the soundtrack, which I have on vinyl, as it moves between lush, romantic passages and insistent thrusts. Needs a better movie.

I only kinda liked this movie. But, I can totally get with its message. So, it was a good movie.

not very similar to the book, but still worth watching. would love for another adaptation to be made, but only if it were closer to the book. not Truffaut's best work, but it's still pretty good.

A film by Francois Truffaut. It may have been much better, but it seems something was awfully wooden about it.

Das Fernsehen

Our Daily Free Stream: Francois Truffaut - Fahrenheit 451. Angeblich schrieb Ray Bradbury seine Kurzgeschichte The Fire Man (die er 1953 zu dem Roman Fahrenheit 451 ausweiten sollte) mit einer Schreibmaschine, die mit Münzeinwurf funktionierte. Sein Hauptanliegen war gar nicht die Kritik an einem totalitären Staat, sondern die Warnung vor dem Medium der Zukunft: Dem Fernsehen. Wir befinden uns also in einem repressiven Staat der Zukunft. Die Feuerwehr hat nicht mehr die Aufgabe, Brände zu löschen, sondern Bücher zu verbrennen. In einer Gesellschaft, in der jeder gleich sein soll, bedeutet das Verfassen oder Lesen eines Romans, sich über die anderen zu erheben. Guy Montag (Oskar Werner) arbeitet seit fünf Jahren für die Feuerwehr 451 und gerade wurde ihm eine Beförderung angeboten. Während...
