Ferm-Eye-at's Room

Pyramid from above with out cap stone and floating eye....

"One room. Four genius minds. The greatest enigma will be how to survive.

Fermat’s Room (La habitación de Fermat) is a stunning Spanish thriller, winner of numerous festival awards. The film stars two of Spain’s best known actors; Santi Millán (Idiot Love) and Lluis Homar (Almodóvar’s Bad Education and Broken Embraces) as well as the ever popular Federico Luppi (Pan’s Labyrinth), Alejo Sauras, and Elena Ballesteros.

Four strangers, who are all mathematicians, are invited to spend a weekend together where they will be challenged to solve a great enigma. Their mysterious host is only known to them by a pseudonym: Fermat. But the room in which they find themselves turns out to be a death-trap that will crush them if they do not discover in time what connects them all and why someone might wish to murder them." - Fermat's Room website

Fermat's Last Theorem

The 1670 edition of Diophantus' Arithmetica includes Fermat's commentary, particularly his "Last Theorem" (Observatio Domini Petri de Fermat).

In number theory, Fermat's Last Theorem states that no three positive integers a, b, and c can satisfy the equation an + bn = cn for any integer value of n greater than two. This theorem was first conjectured by Pierre de Fermat in 1637, but was not proven until 1995 despite the efforts of many illustrious mathematicians. The unsolved problem stimulated the development of algebraic number theory in the 19th century and the proof of the modularity theorem in the 20th. It is among the most famous theorems in the history of mathematics. This quote & below image from Wikipedia
