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 »

Thought-provoking... and funny at times!
22 March 2008 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This is, undoubtedly, one of the most innovative and bizarre films I've seen lately, and I can tell you I see a few every week! The graphics are just wonderful - probably not so high-tech as you can see in some stupidly expensive Hollywood productions, but who needs those when the beauty is in what those flat characters say and show us! Well, maybe those who don't have anything to say...

The use of the different dimensions and the explanations that the characters use to make us understand are of the highest level -- lucid and intelligent, it's a really thought-provoking film, one of those few left out there! ...And what's more, it's even funny at times!
