Hu Mei directs screen legend Chow Yun-Fat in Confucius, a biopic of the legendary teachers rise to greatness, vagabond travels, and eventual return to glory. The film is a sweeping epic piece that features massive battles, various atmospheric backdrops, and a considerably great performance from Chow Yun-Fat. Not only did I enjoy it I also found it to be a huge conversation starter between myself and friends. Was Confucius’ life during the run of the film horribly unjust or a sure sign that a man who finds value only in the prosperity and friendship of those around him can endure, with the world as his shelter and the merit of his person just as good as any currency in any situation? Some would argue that a joke between Confucius and his horse in the film would explain it all. I highly suggest checking the film out and finding your own answer.
