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.
