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 »

fun, thought-provoking, dimensional hybrid animation
25 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

For the Limited Edition DVD-R. This film was leagues more interesting that I expected it to be--my girlfriend REALLY wanted to see it, though.

Lay back, sort of sleepy, watch the film. Some early on-screen direction annoyed me but it didn't last far into the film.

I'm not familiar with the book, but this film is a helluva lot of fun and it brings about some great self-questioning about the perception of consensus reality.

The creativity expressed in the various worlds was quite amusing. And it's mostly a family film but there's some language kids might repeat the next day at school (and get in trouble) and there's some very strange violence :)

Well worth a shot, though.
