Trivia

Composer Kaz Boyle translated some of Edwin A. Abbott's Flatland text into Latin to be sung when Arthur Square first sees the 3rd Dimension: "I looked and behold, a new world! Once more I felt myself rising through space. Awestruck at the sight of the mysteries of the Earth my unworthy eye - I said to my companion: "Behold. I am become as a god!"" See more »

Goofs

The spinning cube at the center of Area 33H shows up as a changing hexagon within Flatland. By analogy, the spinning hypercube at the end of the movie should appear as a changing polyhedral solid, but instead it appears as the full convex-hull three-dimensional projection. See more »

Crazy Credits

The film opens with the following message: 'This movie has been modified from its original version. It has been formatted to fit your Spaceland screen. Certain elements from Flatland have been altered to be recognizable by three-dimensional beings. Any similarity to people, places or objects in our world is purely coincidental.' See more »

Wonderful film for kids and adults!
1 July 2007 | by (New Hampshire, United States) – See all my reviews

I was lucky enough to catch this film about a month ago, and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves math, learning, or great animation. It's beautiful and visually stunning; the acting is great, and the story manages to explain difficult math concepts in an engaging and creative way. Wonderful film for use in classrooms or at home. I heard several kids in the audience say this is "my favorite movie ever!"

Additionally, the on screen interviews with Martin Sheen, Kristen Bell, Tony Hale and Michael York are superb. Hearing them encourage students to learn about math is refreshing and should be a great motivational tool. There's also a great featurette about the 4th dimension - even I could almost understand it, thanks to the amazing visuals!
