1492: Conquest Of Paradise(1992)



Ridley Scott's "1492: Conquest of Paradise" sees Christopher Columbus as more complex and humane than in the other screen treatments of the character. His Columbus is an enlightened revision of the traditional figure, treating Indians the same as Spanish noblemen and seeming content with the notion that nature, not the Catholic God, is their deity.

1492: Conquest of Paradise is a 1992 epic historical drama film directed and produced by Ridley Scott and starring Gérard Depardieu, Armand Assante, and Sigourney Weaver. It portrays a version of the travels to the New World by the Genovese-Castillian explorer Christopher Columbus and the effect this had on indigenous peoples.


1492: Conquest of Paradise opened on 66 screens in Spain, grossing $1 million in its first five days.[10] In the United States and Canada, it was released by Paramount Pictures on 9 October 1992 in 1,008 theaters. The version released there was edited to 150 minutes, with some violence and brutality removed in order to achieve a PG-13 rating.[11] The film was a flop in the United States, debuting at number 7 with a gross of $3,002,680, worse than the opening of Christopher Columbus: The Discovery earlier in the year, and went on to gross just $7 million.[12][13][14] It opened in France on 12 October 1992, grossing $1.46 million for the weekend from 264 screens.[10] In its second week in Europe, it was the highest-grossing film with a gross of over $7.7 million, including $1.77 million in its opening week in Germany from 213 screens. It did not open well in Italy with $261,800 in its opening weekend from 33 screens.[15][16] By the end of 1992, it had grossed $40 million internationally, for a worldwide total of $47 million.[17] It went on to gross $59 million.[18]


Ridley Scott's "1492: Conquest of Paradise" stands as a sort of training exercise for a director priming himself for later, more successful epics. An already-accomplished filmmaker, Scott's retelling of Christopher Columbus's discovery of the Americas finds him expanding his vision, canvas, and narrative scope in comparison to his previous and smaller yet iconic films. While the film lacks the potent politics of "Kingdom of Heaven" or the grand, entertaining spectacle of "Gladiator," it is a lushly visualized piece of work. Its humanity is communicated in overly broad strokes that suit the effectiveness of the film less than deeper, more textured portrayals would, but it still makes for an engaging first stab in classically epic cinema.

(Welcome to Seeing Double, a series where two strangely similar films released around the same time are put head-to-head. This time: 1992's Christopher Columbus: The Discovery and 1492: Conquest of Paradise.)


Christopher Columbus: The Discovery (just Discovery hereafter) follows its title character to the New World, but it spends a substantial part of its two hour run-time focused on Columbus' efforts to secure financial backing from royalty, a teased relationship between him and the queen, and some torturous interactions with the legendary pain manager, Tomas de Torquemada. Another 30 minutes is spent on the ocean as Columbus clashes repeatedly with his ragtag crew, and it's only in the third act that we reach and spend some time amid the lush landscapes, curious natives, and moral ambiguity of our title character.1492: Conquest of Paradise, by contrast, is most interested in the journey itself as well as the events in the Americas that followed. Time is spent back in Europe, but while the film runs more than thirty minutes longer than its competitor, it feels in more of a hurry to head to sea and reach the New World. The meat of its story is in Columbus' relationship with the native people and the Europeans holding the purse strings. His goal of spreading Christianity, almost exclusively to the detriment of the locals, becomes his driving force, and the film ultimately offers a less forgiving look at the man than Discovery does.Advantage: A tie seems like the only option here. Both tell the same mostly familiar story, but both add a bit more detail on opposing ends with Discovery exploring Columbus' pre-journey life and 1492 giving more time to what follows.
