Trivia

"Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions" was originally an 1884 novella by the theologian and mathematician Edwin A. Abbott. It is popular among mathematics and computer science students, and considered useful reading for people studying topics such as the concept of other dimensions. As a piece of literature, Flatland is respected for its satire on the social hierarchy of Victorian society. As of this writing there have been three films made based on this novel, of which "Flatland: The Film" is the latest. See more »

Review of Flatland: the Film
6 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Back when I was in the 6th grade my Dad gave me a copy of the book. I've read it 2 or 3 times over the years and always enjoyed it. I ordered your movie and recently watched it. I totally agree with the reviews you have received from Film Threat magazine and SciFi.com. You did an excellent job of updating the book to be more relevant for today's audience. The movie was incredible. I loved the character design, dialog, action, and music. Great job! The animation is engaging and completely different than the typical CGI films today. I would highly recommend this film to anyone. I wish you great success on this and future projects. I'm looking forward to your next one. Thanks and good luck!
