4.5 out of 10 A Touching Dystopia
Kevin from Dublin, 04 Apr 2007
A mostly realistic vision of a world gone wrong. This film is brilliantly written and well acted by Julie Christie (as both the protagonist's wife and his revolutonary neighbour) and Werner, who is a very watchable screen presence. Includes one of the most beautiful endings in cinema.

What's it about....
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...
