Off he sails, pointedly using his quadrant to demonstrate that the screenwriter has read a book. The real Columbus was a poor navigator, missing the 28th parallel by three whole degrees and falsifying the ship's log to con the crew into thinking they hadn't gone too far.

Ridley Scott 's " 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. Columbus is also a good deal more convincing as a human being. As played by Gerard Depardieu , he seems huge and shaggy and dogged, just the kind of man who would get an idea in his head and refuse to surrender it. We are familiar with many of the stages in his story, such as his defense of his voyage before hostile scholars, and his careful courting of Queen Isabella as his patron, but Depardieu makes them seem new.
