Monty Python: The Meaning of Live

UKTV Gold

November 13 2014

London, 2014. The Monty Pythons are getting ready for their first live shows in more than thirty years. Directors Roger Graef and James Rogan are happily along for the ride, following the surviving Pythons in rehearsals as they regroup and reconnect. In a film packed with memorable moments, most fascinating of all are the Python's insecurities and tensions: the group is all too aware of the sky high expectations, and the fact that they are all ageing - and not always gracefully. As fans from around the world converge for the show - including Brian Cox, Stephen Hawking and Mike Myers in delightful cameos - the Pythons confide frequently, and humerously to the camera. The all areas access allows us to enjoy every step on the road to the ultimate swan song; coupled with rare archive, this film is destined to be the definitive Python documentary for legions of worldwide fans.
