Based on the popular novel of the same name by Ray Bradburry, Fahrenheit 451 was Francois Truffaut’s only film in English and it was also his first color film. Set in the future, this dystopian tale is about firemen who burn all the literature around, if it is found. One of the firemen develops a conscience and starts reading a book that he supposed to burn. Nominated for the Golden Lion at Venice, Martin Scorsese has called the film an “underrated picture” which had influenced his own films.
