It was set on a platform of sorts on a completely still ocean. The platform was submerged so that the ocean was completely level with the walls surrounding it, but the floor was dry. There was a tower with a fat man, I seem to recall he was continually eating spaghetti, and a girl wearing tatters that prepared his meals. A man arrived at the edge of the platform in a sailboat. I don't think there was any dialogue.

The whole thing was pretty arty, but at the same time trashy and funny somehow. I think I saw it on television some time in the late nineties.

I don't recall this scene from the film... –  Rob Mar 5 '14 at 9:58
I thought of the Truman show as well based on the sail boat scene but doesn't match any of the other facts –  AidanO Mar 7 '14 at 17:04
It doesn't fully match bar the boat scene but the author of this question has confused a few bits. It's defo the trueman show. –  James Drayson Mar 9 '14 at 1:25
