Storyline

On safari in British East Africa in September 1910, ten year old Indiana Jones befriends a Massai boy named Meto who helps him in his search for the little seen Fringe-Eared Oryx for former US President Teddy Roosevelt. From there on he and his family and tutor travel to Paris, France where Indy meets a young Norman Rockwell and gets involved in a quarrel between the painters Edgar Degas and Pablo Picasso. The young American boys get a fascinating insight into modern art as Picasso schemes to one up the old master Degas. Written by Il Tesoro

Still no consistent plot, but a fun adventure anyways
13 March 2008 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

In this instalment Indy travels to Africa and meets up with President Roosevelt on a safari trip. Keen to hunt down a rare animal Indy helps the President out by going off on his own with a local tribes-boy and getting into the usual trouble.

He's not happy with Teddy gunning down all the wildlife and urges him to limit his killing. It's a believable development since he found the hunting of the famous 'Teddy Bear' to be un-sportsmanlike (it was later killed anyway).

The film then moves on to Paris where Indy meets a young Norman Rockwell and sneaks off into the city where he meets Pablo Picasso (played by Danny Webb, who you might recognise as Morse from Alien 3). I found this scene to be a bit confusing as Picasso is Hitler's exact double in the movie, right down to the hair and moustache and everyone knows that Hitler was a failed artist before a dictator. So when we are introduced to Picasso as a man who is adamant that his art is understood I immediately got it wrong.

The lack of plot is kind of annoying, but it's a decent movie.
