Truffaut’s first colour film combines the black humour of the French director and the morality of Ray Bradbury’s book, which has already been adapted to cinema several times, specifically because of the way in which the story’s dystopia is portrayed. It’s a world where literature is banned for being the spark that can light the flame of revolution, something that is literally extinguished by dedicated firefighters.

[Based on the romance by Ray Bradbury]
