The great sage and philosopher Kong Qiu lived at a time when China was still a patchwork of feudal states vying with each other for supremacy. In the Spring and Autumn Period, the ruler of Lu invited Kong Qiu into the court as a trusted adviser, and appointed him the court's Minister of Rituals. He skillfully engineered a peace with aggressive neighbouring states and brought three dominant local clans under control. However, his brilliance as a thinker and tactician was not enough to save him from being exiled by his political enemies, and he spent many years wandering and teaching a band of loyal followers.

Subtitles were hard to read! White on light background. Gave up!

Confusius left me confused. I just couldn't keep-up with the vying Chinese factions / kingdoms. Still, great production value!

When asked if there was one rule to guide one through life, he said “Do not do to others what you do not want done to yourself”.

A very beautiful (and concise) telling of Confucius's life. It is a history, so it lacks a bit of depth of story-telling. But it is very well done.

Poor script in mho with little focus on what made Confucius's teaching lasting but confusing wars among the lords in his days.

Not great, not horrible either. It gives an account of the life of Confucius, though some parts are not historically correct.

Too little drama for a potential big film.
