Product Description

1492- Conquest of Paradise (1992)


 Ridley Scott


 Rose Bosch (scenario)


 Gérard Depardieu, Armand Assante, Sigourney Weaver 
This, the second of 1992's 500th anniversary Christopher Columbus films (the first being Warner Bros. Christopher Columbus: The Discovery), adheres to the historical facts of Columbus's (Gerard Depardieu) possessed quest to discover the New World, and his solicitation of Queen Isabella (Sigourney Weaver) to gain the necessary funding. Despite travelogue-quality footage replete with beautiful scenery of Caribbean islands and a massive cast, this film tends to plod along with too predictable a plot and a mis-cast Columbus.Depardieu -- a very capable French actor speaking English and playing an Italian -- becomes perhaps the movie's bright spot (even if at his own expense) as he laughably struggles with line after line. Michael Wincottputs forth a worthy performance as a nasty Spanish nobleman whose mistreatment of the natives results in an open rebellion.
