Storyline

The globe trotting trip that Henry Jones, Jr. sets out on in the early 1900s next takes him and his family to Russia. A few acts of clumsiness puts Indy at odds with his father who is greatly displeased with Indy. Indy runs away into the Russian countryside and wakes in the morning on a haystack. He encounters an odd, cantankerous old man named Leo Tolstoy, who is in full agreement that "hell" is other people. Both are running away to seek a simpler life. They cross the countryside, encountering colorful Gypsies and avoiding fierce Imperial Cossack troops. The hardships of the journey make Indy homesick, but he won't soon forget his journey with the stubborn old man. Indy's next destination is Greece, where his mother Anna realizes that father and son need to spend more time together. The two bristle at each other's company as they explore the sites of ancient Greece, but Henry finally reaches past Indy's impudence and stubbornness when the topic turns to philosophy and the teachings ...

Goofs

Though the story takes place no later than 1910 (the year of Tolstoy's death) the map linking sequence between the Russia and Greece segments show frontiers established after the II Balkan War (1913). Bulgaria's shape in particular is pretty revealing. See more »

Quotes

Leo Tolstoy: You reeking little swine, how dare you shoot me in the ass!
Indiana Jones: I thought you were a giant weazle.
Leo Tolstoy: Do I look like a giant weazle? Is it my twitching snout? My long, hairless tail? Are all little English boys as stupid as you?
Indiana Jones: I'm not English, I'm American.
Leo Tolstoy: That explains it.

Pleasant journey

After the extremely dull Perils of Cupid this next adventure of Young Indiana Jones is a helluva lot more interesting. His first adventure takes place in Russia, where his parents are staying in a castle with a bunch of important people. Indy gets into trouble and his dad gets furious. Tired of his parents' rules he runs away and meets an old man who just so happens to be Leo Tolstoy, the famous author of War and Peace.

As they both try to flee from their families across the Russian countryside both Indy and Tolstoy learn from each other and develop quite a touching relationship. In the end they realize that going home is the best thing to do, but not before an interesting trade.

In the second half Indy travels to Athens where his tutor takes ill. His mother whisks her away to a spa leaving Indy all alone with his dad. Not knowing how to deal with the boy on his own, Henry Jones Snr. takes Indy to all the important historical sites Athens has to offer. At first he's strict and hard, as per usual, but as soon as Indy starts to take in all of the lectures he lightens up and they have their own crazy adventure after a flock of sheep eat their clothes while skinny dipping.

I've said it before but Lloyd Owen really does do a good impersonation of Sean Connery and, eye color aside, he convinces as a younger version of the Henry Jones Snr. we saw in The Last Crusade.

It still doesn't have any definitive imagery, unlike the movies, but makes for entertaining viewing on a wet afternoon nonetheless.
