Tuvalu, formerly known as the Ellice Islands, is a Polynesian island nation located in the Pacific Ocean midway between Hawaii and Australia. Its nearest neighbours are Kiribati, Samoa and Fiji. Comprising 4 reef islands and 5 true atolls, with a total land area of just 26 square kilometers (10 sq mi), it is the second-least populated independent country in the world, Vatican City being the smallest.
Tuvalu is a 1999 experimental comic movie from Germany. The style evokes early 20th Century Silent movies and what little dialog is contained is in a mix of European languages. The film stars Denis Lavant as Anton and Chulpan Khamatova as Eva.
