Four top scientists in their respective fields and probably four of the
most brilliant minds in the whole wide world, Sandra (Lisa Bearpark),
Carol (Jennifer Lila), Kate (Vee Vimolmal) and David (Håkan
Julander) are summond by science legend Dr. Wahlstein (Daniel Epstein) for
a special research project - but once they arrive they're locked into the
room, and via a recorded message learn that Wahlstein has long died but
with his dying breath has given them a series of numbers which they have
to make sense of in order to survive. Of course, this sounds like a sick
joke, but once they find out the room is booby-trapped they see no other
way out than to solve the riddle, of which they don't know the answer of
course, but neither the question - but they're brilliant enough to
eventually come up with very viable theories involving time travel,
tachyons and parallel universes ... which is when one of their ranks,
Carol, starts disappearing and first reappearing again in slightly
different places, then disappearing altogether, but Dr. Wahlstein, not
dead at all, does appear, and it soon becomes somehow apparent that
different universes seem to collide, and the room our heroes are kept in
is the area of the first impact - but what to do and how to steer it they
still have to figure out, and it's not at all helped that the different
dimensions gradually become mingled almost beyong comprehension ...
Now if your idea of
science fiction is enormous explosions, fancy costumes and futuristic
sets, then Tangent Room, a film restricted to just one very
ordinary room in which people in everyday outfits are mostly talking is
not for you - and having said that, I'm not in the least implying that Tangent
Room is in the least boring, as it manages to bring its story across
via well-written dialogue and escapes pure brainy-ness by making its
topics tangible, basically making the numbers it's "based on"
(which I don't pretend to understand in the least) as a mere catalyst to
keep the story going rather than the center of its narrative. Now add to
that a strong cast and a well-constructed narrative arc, and you've
basically got yourself a pretty cool movie!
