Experimental film, drawing from German expressionism and extensively quoting early 20th-century films. Tuvalu is inspired by Georges Méliès, Jean Vigo, Buster Keaton and Franz Kafka, and the work of Veit Helmer was his great festival success. The sparse dialogues are in the mixture of European languages, the lack of a dialogue path will become the hallmark of this director. Anton and his parents live in a decrepit bathhouse. He deceives a blind father that their business is as successful as it used to be. Anton will have to fight to save the bathhouse from being demolished and the beloved Eve who appeared in his life.
