Fahrenheit 451 (François Truffaut, 1966)

GROTE ZAAL | Online €5 | Kassa €6

A truly cinematic gem and one of Truffaut’s most unique films.

A tribute to François Truffaut
During January we continue our tribute to François Truffaut – a lifelong cinephile who first made his cinematic mark as a fiery, contentious critic for Cahiers du cinéma in the 1950s, and himself continued as a director to reinvigorate cinema throughout the 1960s.

All films are with English subtitles.  

Fahrenheit 451 (François Truffaut, 1966)
In an oppressive future, a fireman whose duty is to destroy all books begins to question his task. Based on a novel by Ray Bradbury, “Fahrenheit 451” marks a drastic change in Truffaut’s direction, and a worthy one. It’s Truffaut first film in color, and he revels in the new creative dimension that color opens for him. As a futuristic science-fiction film, the project opens the door to abstractions—visual as well as intellectual—that had been remote from Truffaut’s earlier films. Although underappreciated by critics and viewers alike, it is truly a cinematic gem and one of Truffaut’s most unique films. 

* French film with English subtitles.
