Monty Python's Life of Brian, also known as Life of Brian, is a 1979 comedy film written, directed and largely performed by the Monty Python comedy team. It tells the story of Brian Cohen (played by Graham Chapman), a young Jewish man who is born in the same era and location as Jesus Christ and subsequently mistaken for the Messiah.

 

The film contains themes of religious satire which were controversial at the time of its release, drawing accusations of blasphemy and protests from some religious groups. Some UK towns and some countries banned its showing, with a few of these bans lasting decades. It also contains elements of political satire targeted at far-left groups.

 

The film was a box-office success, grossing fourth-highest of any film in Britain in 1979 and highest of any British film in America that year. It has remained popular since then, receiving positive reviews and being named 'Greatest British comedy film of all time' by several magazines and television networks.
