3 stars I should rave about Conquest To Paradise more. This makes the Mission by Ennio Morrichone look positevely juvenile. The film is an epic with Gerard Depardieu playing the lead role. Cinematics abound but without this wonderful soundtrack by Vangelis I personally believe the movie would not have been as successful. Such was the force of the music, so carefully crafted and delivered on COP. There is a scene in the film where Colombus puts his first foot on the Americas ' Eternity' and the result of the music and film is ' goosebump' material. As I mentioned musically very very strong and also an excellent work from Vangelis, perhaps his best soundtrack work ever.Three and a half stars.
