    This movie is based on the 1884 novella by Edwin Abbott Abbott, titled Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions:

    Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions is an 1884 novella by Edwin Abbott Abbott, still 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.

    Several movies have been made from the story, including two from different directors released in 2007.
    You can read the original book online and in the movie's official site too.





    See the trailer on Trailer news.

    Edit: I forgot to give thanks to EL FLACO ESPACIAL, member of UFO PORTUGAL Yahoo! Group, for his comments about the original book that led me to Wikipedia to find the info about this movie.
