Plot Summary:

Chow Yun-Fat will play ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius in a new biopic backed by the Chinese government. Chairman Mao Zedong condemned Confucius, and during the disastrous Cultural Revolution, Red Guards destroyed Confucius' family home, family grave plot and a temple in his honor in his eastern hometown of Qufu, wrecking around 6,600 priceless relics. The philosopher's teachings are now gaining popularity as a way of bringing morals to the country which is contending with burgeoning wealth and the rise of consumerism. The movie will screen later this year to mark the 60th anniversary of the People's Republic of China and Chinese thinker/social philosopher's 2,560th birthday.
