Storyline

Internationally acclaimed ventriloquist Nina Conti, takes the bereaved puppets of her mentor and erstwhile lover Ken Campbell on a pilgrimage to 'Venthaven' the resting place for puppets of dead ventriloquists. She gets to know her latex and wooden travelling partners along the way, and with them deconstructs herself and her lost love in this ventriloquial docu-mocumentary requiem. Ken Campbell was a hugely respected maverick of the British Theatre, an eccentric genius who would snort out forgotten artforms. Nina was his prodigy in ventriloquism and has been said to have reinvented the artform. This film is truly unique in genre and style. No one has seen ventriloquism like this before.

Trivia

Jay Johnson appears as one of the ventriloquists at the convention. Ironically, a year later, Nina Conti and her puppet, Monkey, would do on the Christopher Guest series "Family Tree" what Jay's character, Bob, and his dummy, Chuck, did on "Soap" decades earlier: On each series, both Jay and Nina play family members who think their puppet is real: all the while using it as a means to insult people i.e. to voice their true, blunt and politically-incorrect opinions and observations.

Quotes

Nina Conti: Oh dear. Don't drink and ah, do ventriloquism, I think, is the moral of this evening.

Ok But Needed More Monkey
5 March 2019 | by TheFearmakersSee all my reviews

You may not want to watch this after falling in love with Nina Conti and especially her blunt, brutally honest counterpart Monkey in Christopher Guest's one-season series, Family Tree, where she... or, they... stole the entire show, because just imaging such a cute woman even younger having an affair with an old man with eyebrows that resemble scarecrows in distress is gross enough, she has to keep mentioning it. That's the movie though, inheriting a zany but dead British actor's puppets and going to a dummy-talker (can't spell the V word) convention, and there are some talented people showcased, but not enough Monkey. Monkey is the best, ever, and there needs to be more of him. More Monkey. More. Monkey.
