I believe the biggest item that should be talked about is how historically accurate this film is, and did the director try to accurately portray what really happened during that time period. The opening scenes were strong indications that the Director wanted us to feel Columbus convictions that the Indies could be reached by sailing westward. In my textbook chapter 1, page 6 there is an engraving by Theodore de Bry, showing Columbus about to depart from Palos.
History is an orange for some drlarue-1 24 April I first saw this movie in after hearing that I had missed something special from a friend who did see it in the theater.
As one always interested in history since childhood, I looked into the history portrayed in this excellent film.
Actually, it is adopted from Columbus's son's own memoirs and what is factually known. Columbus did strike out to find Asia, we all know that. But he actually did become idealistic and wish to create a New World for those weary of the old - and many were.
This theme continued right into the development of the U. What many do not realize is how much this history intersects with the Knights Templar's search for a place to headquarter permanently after loosing it's hold in Europe in In Spain, the Templars were converted into 1492 conquest paradise order called "Knights of Christ" and retained that famous cross that everyone is familiar with as present on the 1492 conquest paradise Maria, but with no understanding.
Prince Henry the Navigator was one and Columbus was made one. There is new old evidence that French Templars who settled in Scotland after made it to what is now Rhode Island two archaeological evidences exist there, as well as evidence in Scotland. Some theorize and this is much more theory than the aforementioned that the hole on Oak Island was a stash created by the French Templars of the mysterious treasury that never has quite been accounted for and has given rise to numerous theories of Templars treasures in France and elsewhere.
Even the book - The Da Vinci Code utilizes parts of this foil in its plot. If you traced it truly, the diligent researcher will find that the Templars had its continuance as the Freemasonic brotherhood.
What has this to do with Columbus? Am I way off the subject. That this movie is a visual and auditory masterpiece is without question. That the acting is everywhere from adequate to brilliant, yes, who could play Moxica better, and how can anyone seeing this movie in English be so arrogant to complain that Depardieu has a French accent??
Columbus used the plans of Da Vinci is a light going on? That he had problems with his ideals becoming reality is more than commonplace for anyone who has tried to do something extraordinary, but especially when power is involved.
His plan had to fail, even the weather was against it. No one in Europe understood hurricanes then. What a film packed with potential historical departures this is!! I pity those who miss all this richness.
When I read such negative reviews by those who claim the history is all wrong, I wonder what stereotype of history they think they were taught.
It is no surprise to me that they seem to think the scene with the orange was about an orange! They didn't pay attention to this film long enough to understand the simplest scene! I gather they don't really pay much attention to history either, but have popular historical assumptions that they have been fed or imagined.
This is a film that ought to be shown in every classroom in the New World as well as Europe, if nowhere else.
And for those who claim they were bored - rent an Arnold shoot-em up and stay home during elections, your opinion is just that valuable. Was this review helpful?
