A small group of astronauts wakes up to find that their ship has crash-landed on a planet where humans are prelingual and uncivilized and apes have the supreme qualities of speech and use technology. We can see that the dystopia of director Franklin J. Schaffner is not very different from what we live in, with elements such as existential debates, oppressive authority opposing intellectual and kinetic progress.
