Monty Python's Life of Brian
Brian was born at the original Christmas, in the nearby stable. He spends his life being mistaken for Christ. The story of Brian Nazareth, born on the same day as Jesus of Nazareth, who takes a different path in life leads to the same result. Brian joins a political resistance movement aimed at getting the Romans out of Judea. Brian achieved victories of some kind when he managed to paint political slogans on a wall in Jerusalem. The movement is not very effective but somehow Brian becomes a prophet and gathers the following. But his fate is sealed and lives very short lives.
