"Biopic set during the decline of the Zhou Dynasty."
Set at the end of the Spring and Autumn Period, when civil war and social upheaval were violently bringing an end to the feudal system of the Zhou Dynasty, Hu Mei's biopic ramatizes the life and belief of the legendary Chinese sage and shows the often difficult conversion of idea into action. Starring Hong Kong icon Chow Yun Fat, it features exquisitely colour- coded set design and costumes, impressive wide-screen spectacle and superb battle sequences.
