Tuvalu Reviews

December 8, 2002
Intriguing but ultimately irritating misfire.
July 20, 2002
A fascinating work that never quite coalesces, Tuvalu finally becomes oppressively repetitive.
February 8, 2002
Charming and a little tiresome.
December 14, 2001
A disappointment, a precious and grotesque exercise reminiscent of Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Delicatessen, only less amusing.
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.

Might have worked better as an experimental short rather than a full 90-minute feature

Sometimes Tuvalu causes a viewer to wonder if Helmer and his cast and crew are just playing dress-up.
