"Life has more imagination than we carry in our dreams."
- Quote at end of the film
USA Today - 10/09/1992
"...1492 aces all of its New World visual elements..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 10/09/1992
"...Ridley Scott is a visually oriented director who finds great beauty in his vision of the New World....A satisfactory film. Depardieu lends it gravity, the supporting performances are convincing, the locations are realistic..."
Ridley Scott's 1492: CONQUEST OF PARADISE is an epic story of the visionary mariner who set a stifled Europe free and brought mixed blessings to the New World. This intelligent and learned film portrays Columbus without indulging in modern politics, cynicism, or undue romanticism.
