When The Life of Brian was first released in 1979 it was hailed by most as Monty Python’s finest parody and denounced by a few as the most blasphemous film of all time. But, with it’s infinitely quotable script and unforgettable song, ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life’, it has gone on to become an enduring cult classic. Set in 33 A.D. Judea with the accidental messiah, Brian Cohen at it’s centre, born in Bethlehem in a stable next door, who, by a series of absurd circumstances is reluctantly caught up in a new religion, providing ample opportunity for the entire ensemble (Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin) to shine in multiple roles as they question everyone and everything from ex-lepers, Pontius Pilate and haggling to revolutionaries, crazy prophets, religious fanaticism, Roman centurions and crucifixion, forever changing our biblical views.
