Synopsis


A Liar's Autobiographyis best described as a black comedy, in which Graham Chapman takes us through the highs and lows of his extraordinary life. Often dark and brutally candid, it's a biography that also treats us to constant flights of fancy, surreal moments, fantasy sequences and silliness. Not a documentary, not a Monty Python film. Incredible, yes. Surreal, certainly. True? Who knows?
