A literate adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s singular novel about a future time when all books have been outlawed by an oppressive regime. Firemen in this world have the role of hunting down these illegal manuscripts and burning them, but one of their number begins to question his own actions.

"With a serious and even terrifying theme, this excursion into science fiction has been thoughtfully directed by Francois Truffaut and there is adequate evidence of light touches to bring welcome and needed relief to a sombre and scarifying subject."
- Variety
"An underrated film, perhaps because it is less science fiction than a tale of 'once upon a time.'"
- Time Out
