French New Wave director François Truffaut brings Ray Bradbury's classic science-fiction story to life. In a futuristic society, an oppressive government bans literature to control public opinion. Bonuses include an interview with Bradbury, the making-of, commentary by Christie, more.
Reviews Counted: 31
Rotten: Even at the science-fiction horror-story level, the movie fails -- partly, I think, because Truffaut is too much of an artist to exploit the vulgar possibilities in the material.-Pauline Kael, The New Republic, August 30, 2012
Fresh: 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, June 05, 2007
Rotten: This 1966 film often looks good (it was Truffaut's first in color, photographed by Nicolas Roeg), but the ideas, such as they are, get lost in the meandering narrative.-Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader, June 05, 2007
Fresh: An underrated film, perhaps because it is less science fiction than a tale of 'once upon a time.'-, Time Out, January 26, 2006
