Tuvalu

Deutschland 1998/1999 Spielfilm

Summary

Tuvalu is a poetic fairy-tale told without dialogue. Anton is locked by his blind father Karl into their old grand swimming pool. To please Karl, Anton maintains the illusion that the bath is intact and constantly busy. But the only guest to come is Eva, looking for Imperial, the old steam machine in the cellar. When Karl dies, the old empty pool dies with him. Anton and Eva take Imperial and sail away on Eva′s tugboat to the island of Tuvalu.
The film was shot in b&w and colored afterwards in the laboratory.
