The previous teacher provided a great response.  I’ve been teaching this novel for over six years now, and have maybe only shown clips of the movie once or twice in my career, and then only as a time-filler (and only after the test since it’s quite different than the novel).Since Francois Truffaut’s movie was released in 1966, we do not receive the benefit of “modern” film-making capabilities; therefore, we do not get the mechanical hound, the elaborate wall-sized parlor television screens, etc.  We do, however, understand the “emptiness” of the setting, as the previous teacher stated.Some of the major themes of the novel, I believe, are still intact even in the movie version: censorship can result in an ignorant society, and an unhealthy dependence on technology can lead to apathy and a meaningless existence, to name just a couple.And you just gotta love the jet packs:)Rumor has it a new version of the film is set to be released in 2012 (see link to IMDb.com).  I’ll be first in line without my “seashell radio” iPod anywhere near my person.
