Tuvalu is a 1999 experimental movie from Germany. The style evokes early 20th Century Silent movies and motifs commonly found in German expressionism. The sparse dialog is presented in a mix of European languages. The film stars Denis Lavant as Anton and Chulpan Khamatova as Eva.
The film focuses on Anton as he tries to win the heart of Eva and save his family's bath house from the wrecking ball.
Dans une autre époque, Anton, modeste gardien d’un établissement de bains, rêve de prendre le large en direction de l’île Tuvalu. Un poème onirique et fantastique.
