Film information

Based on: The novel by Patrick O'Brian ('Master and Commander')

Story: Seafaring adventure double. Gerard Depardieu stars as Christopher Columbus in '1492 - Conquest of Paradise' (1992), 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. 'Master and Commander - The Far Side of the World' (2003) is Peter Weir's adaptation of one of the 'Master and Commander' novels by Patrick O'Brian, which are set during the Napoleonic Wars and feature the character Captain Jack Aubrey. After conquering much of Europe already, Napoleon's forces have set their sights on taking Britian, so Captain Aubrey (Russell Crowe) and the crew of his ship, the HMS Surprise, take to the Pacific to intercept any attacking ships from the French fleet. When Aubrey eyes a renegade French super-frigate, the Surprise pursues, leading to an adrenaline-charged chase through the distant reaches of the sea.
