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 ...

Trivia

Fourth and last Young Indy TV movie shown on The Family Channel, originally shot as three different episodes for a proposed third series of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992). The full length episode from which the 'bookend' sequence with Sean Patrick Flanery comes, was announced to be included in Chapter 19: "The Winds of Change", while the reedited main part of this movie starring Corey Carrier, would become Chapter 4: "Travels with Father". Both chapters are as yet unreleased. See more »

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

Indiana Jones: You have dogs? So do I. One I mean, her name's Indiana. I haven't seen her in over a year, though. 'Cause we've been traveling so much.
Leo Tolstoy: You miss her?
Indiana Jones: Yeah, you bet I do. Can't wait to see her when we get home. Wonder if she'll still remember me.
Leo Tolstoy: Of course she will. Dogs are better than people.

A reasonably solid entry
28 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After the Perils of Cupid this next adventure of continues a tradition of solid, character drive, and educational stories. The first adventure in this re cut for DVD takes place in Russia, where Henry Jones Senior (Lloyd Owen) takes his family to stay in a castle with Russian aristocracy. Unsurprisingly Indy gets into trouble and raises the ire of his father. This proves to be a final straw and he runs away, bumping into Leo Tolstoy, who is doing the same thing. This becomes the early 20th century version of a Road Trip story, and Indy and Tolstoy learn from each other, Carrier giving another good performance and British actor Michael Gough giving a charismatic performance as Tolstoy. Their adventure is involving and the story ends in a charming and touching manner.

Circumstances in the second part of the story mean that father and son are left together on their own. Its interesting to see Lloyd Owen show his difficulty in relating to his son without the help of his wife or Indy's teacher. There are some crazy and amusing moments, and it fun to see the two characters grow closer to each other as the story concludes.

Another solidly entertaining entry
