Tuvalu is like watching a Dali painting brought to life...and who wouldn't want to see that?

Intriguing but ultimately irritating misfire.

Ultimately a rewarding -- if weird -- experience. It's just too bad that it takes so long to get there.

Fetishistic in its bemusement with gadgetry and painstaking in its slapstick-meets-high-emotion construction... Tuvalu is a decently engaging high farce, even if its influences are roundly on display.

A fascinating work that never quite coalesces, Tuvalu finally becomes oppressively repetitive.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The film is relentlessly arty and much too stylistically bizarre for mainstream taste ... But it has its own peculiar charm.

Tuvalu is astounding. It is also bizarre, challenging, and, at times, admirably overreaching.

Emil Christov's stunningly clear black and white cinematography presents images from another time, like a neo-Guy Maddin flick.

This one-of-a kind charmer casts an immediate and delightful spell.

Helmer's film is easy to enjoy as a mere romp, though it also can be read as a very thinly veiled allegory about post-Soviet Europe.

A gorgeous cough syrup hallucination -- the kind of beautiful, feverish dream to which you succumb while eardrum-piercingly high on over-the-counter cold medicine.

December 14, 2001
A disappointment, a precious and grotesque exercise reminiscent of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Delicatessen, only less amusing.
December 14, 2001
A film this bizarre and spectacular can't be entirely written off.
December 13, 2001
Still in the mood for something offbeat and phantasmagoric? Check out this charming German import by Veit Helmer.
December 7, 2001
Undeniably the product of a singular and beautifully realized vision.
December 7, 2001
The kind of movie that might one day find itself in the hall of fame of surreal movie weirdness alongside cult favorites like Eraserhead, Delicatessen and the avant-garde frolics of Guy Maddin.
