Lao Tzu – a Film

It’s difficult to know much for certain about the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu. Even his name can be a little confusing: it’s also sometimes translated as Laozi or Lao Tze. Lao Tzu is said to have been a record keeper in the court of the central Chinese Zhou dynasty in the 6th century BC, and an older contemporary of Confucius. He may also have been entirely mythical, much like Homer in western culture.
