Synopsis:
Gerard Depardieu stars as Christopher Columbus in Ridley Scott's biopic of the famous explorer. In the late fifteenth century, Columbus persuades the Queen of Spain (Sigourney Weaver) to fund his latest expedition to the East by searching out new trade routes on the way. Inadvertantly arriving in the Americas, Columbus attempts to civilise the natives and live in harmony with them, but his efforts are sabotaged by a crew intent on plundering all the New World has to offer. One of three films (the other two being 'Christopher Columbus - The Discovery' and the comedy 'Carry On Columbus') about Columbus to hit the screens in 1992, marking the 500th anniversary of the original voyage.
