"Flatland" was the first computer-animated feature film to be created by one person, without the legion of animators and technical crew required by larger-budgeted animation studios. See more »


A Sphere says that the "cube" is building from playing cards has the same length, width, and height, yet the pattern on the cards clearly shows that the length/width ratio is 4/3. See more »

Watta ya mean, upward?
20 March 2007 | by benoit_diamondSee all my reviews

This independent film has everything to become a big hit... a solid storyline, driven from the book by the same name, that leaves you both amused and disturbed at times. A good soundtrack that leaves it's mark, but doesn't overpower the art and dialogs. Amusing characters that you can't help but sympathize with, and finally, beautiful artwork that has nothing to envy to Hollywood productions, as it doesn't distract your attention from the story itself.

Reading the book beforehand is not necessary, but will definitely help you catch on to the story faster, as you will not sit there wondering what's up with these wacky Flatlanders while an important part of the plot is revealed.

A must see! I highly recommend it.
