I also enjoyed this movie but there were a few inaccuracies. For example,
they end up driving in the mountains of Ukraine but Jonathon flies into
Odessa. The only mountains I know of in Ukraine are in the far west, the
Carpathians, where my mother is >from and where I have visited. You would
never fly into Odessa but instead into Lviv or maybe Kiev. The movie was

1) The Crimea is mountainous; the Crimea is in Ukraina; "the mountains
of Ukraina" is not an inaccuracy.
2) Neither is "Jonathon flies into Odessa; I myself flew into Odessa
in 1960.
