In my grade nine class we are doing a study on this awesome ray bradbury movie;however, it is very complicated to understand considering there are so many possibilities to conclude a solution at the end, so If anyone has seen this short movie and want to explain it to me that would be great!!!!

Read the Short Story of the same title. You may better understand the plot from the words on the page if you didn't comprehend the eerie theme from the images in the video (from a 1985 RB Theater Episode). The story is collected in his book The October Country. Maybe your library has a copy. I am sure your librarian would be very willing to help you out.

Your original interpretation is worth much more than anyone here could possibly offer.

I agree that you should read the original story, which I think you will find is very clear and a really good read.

I have a review of the film on my website, which may help. Click here to view it.

Phil, on your site's RBT reviews: Great - more of the "coming soon" I hope!! What an asset to educators, especially in view of the now widely available DVD's. I'll be sure to give you credit (from across the pond) when highlighting some of these in my next SF class - which starts in 2 weeks!

Interesting how things so often "tie-in" on this site! Thanks.

Thanks. I do intend to review every episode, but each review takes a long time to produce - and I don't have any spare time at the moment. I'll always post here whenever I update.
