The film tells the story of Christopher Columbus' (Gérard Depardieu) discovery of America. Columbus persuades Queen Isabella (Sigourney Weaver) to support his next expedition. By sailing to the West, he wants to find a new trade route to Asia in the East. He has the ambition to live in peace with the indigenous people of the New World, but is opposed by his followers who only seek to exploit the land and its inhabitants. Ultimately, this causes Columbus to be forgotten and ended in poverty. In 1992 the soundtrack of the same name 1492: Conquest of Paradise in the Netherlands was for some time in the Album Top 100. In 1995, greater success followed. After a hype created by a boxer in Germany, the album topped the Album Top 100 for five weeks and remained there for 37 weeks. With total sales of more than 200,000 copies, it is one of the best-selling soundtracks of all time in the Netherlands.
