Description

Details

In the not-too-distant future, forbidden volumes of literature are burned regularly by the 'firemen'. Montag (Oskar Werner) is the man in charge of the burnings, but after meeting a revolutionary book-owner, schoolteacher Clarisse (Julie Christie), he begins to have doubts - both about his vocation and his dead marriage to pleasure-seeking Linda (also Christie). Curious about the draw of literature, Montag keeps a forbidden volume of 'David Copperfield' for himself, and soon embarks on a clandestine affair with Linda. The music score comes from the legendary Bernard Herrmann. In the not-too-distant future, forbidden volumes of literature are burned regularly by the 'firemen'.
