Italian explorer Christopher Columbus is scoffed at by his contrymen when he reveals his desire to prove that the earth is round by sailing east to reach India.

As an historical epic or even a gung-ho action romp, this displays little taste or spectacle and feels more interminable than Columbus' original voyage.
