“… a stunning short film… offers an unusual romantic vision of mathematicians.”

(Le Monde)

“The clean red, white and black color scheme, the simplicity, the staging… the music… all lend themselves to the symmetry, logic and metaphor of math while also breaking through the barriers of conventional cinema… vibrant and captivating, bringing abstraction to life… a truly enthralling and resonating film.”

(San Francisco Examiner)
