Storyline

Solid Geometry is about Phil whose life is changed when he receives 41 volumes of his great grandfather's diaries. The diaries becomes an obsession and alienates himself away from his wife Maisie. In the diaries, Phil comes across "the plane without a surface," a geometrical figure that operates as a one-way ticket to another dimension. He creates the figure and tests it on Maisie.

Solidly enjoyable if you're prepared to doff your thinking cap
27 May 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

An intriguing plot with a real twist. Does Masie wind up in the desert of babies I wonder? I really though he was going to have the guts to go visit for himself, evil sod.

I loved the motif of the origami flower which had the precision of Western mathematics and the beauty of Easter mysticism. Very like the kind of thing you see Buddha sitting in before he rises to a new dimension.

Anyone interested in reading some freaky stuff on higher-dimensional mathematics could do no better than picking up a copy of Rudy Rucker's The Fourth Dimension. When you get your head round the fact that left and right handedness is purely subjective and visualising hypercubes you'll enjoy this film on a whole new level.

Happy exploring.
