Mesih, or the Messiah is a 2007 film from the Islamic Republic of Iran, depicting the life of Jesus from an Islamic perspective, based not only on the canonical gospels, but also the Qur'an, and, it would seem, the Gospel of Barnabas. which conforms to the Islamic interpretation of the origins of Christianity. Iranian actor, Ahmad Soleimani Nia plays the role of Jesus. Some Islamic organizations cite it in support of the Islamic view of Jesus. The director sees his film "as an Islamic answer to Western productions like Mel Gibson's 2004 blockbuster The Passion of the Christ, which he praised as admirable but quite simply "wrong", not that Talebzadeh's version is "right", to say the least." The film has two endings, one from the Christian bible and one from the Qur'an. The film was played at the Philadelphia film festival.The 2007 Religion Today Film Festival in Italy has given the movie an award for promoting interfaith understanding.
