Confucius is a 2010 biographical film based on the life of highly-influential Chinese philosopher Confucius (551-479 BC).

Cinema.com describes the film as an epic masterpiece that balances breathtaking spectacle, visceral action and heart-wrenching drama to deliver one China’s most unforgettable movies.

In 500 BC during China’s famed ‘Spring and Autumn Period’, Confucius, a commoner revered for his outstanding wisdom, is made Minister of Law in the ancient Kingdom of Lu. Under his inspired leadership, Lu ascends to new heights but becomes a target of conquest for the warlike nation of Qi. Threatened with annihilation by their powerful neighbour, desperate people turn to their greatest teacher to lead their most powerful army. When Confucius delivers a stunning victory against all odds a jealous aristocracy sets out to destroy him, but they should never under-estimate a remarkable man whose wisdom is more powerful than the sword.

With breathtaking cinematography from Oscar-winning director of photography, Peter Pau (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Confucius is one of Asian Cinema’s finest achievements and is a compelling invitation to discover the remarkable story of one of history’s greatest heroes.
