Rating:
Not Available
Tuvalu is a German film that both evokes the techniques of early silent film and employs the world of modern fantasy. Anton (Dennis Lavant), is an overworked apprentice of his blind father, who runs a bathhouse. While his father's business fails and his brother Gregor (Terrence Gillespie) tries to start a new business in his place, Anton falls in love with Eva (Chulpan Hamatova). Eva and her father are visitors to the bathhouse, and end up staying there after they lose their home. After Eva's father dies, however, she loses her trust in Anton and turns to his brother's advances instead. Though he still dreams of escaping to the island of Tuvalu, Anton no longer knows how he will ever get away from his hopeless life, save his parents' business, and finally win Eva's love. Director Veit Helmer tells the story with minimal dialogue, highly physical acting, and black and white filming.
