Trivia

The movie/series Arn: The Knight Templar contains several historical errors - for example is an all female choir seen in the first part or ep. 1, whereas a young Arn Magnusson (Joakim Natterqvist) first spots the love of his life Cecilia (Sofia Helin) in a Church choir. The historical problem is that the Roman Catholic Church had no female ensambles until maybe late mideval times in Europe or the Nordic countries. Choirs consisted of men or, in the 12th Century, boys who were able to sing in a higher tone than grown men. See more »

Goofs

When Arn and Cecilia are walking through the woods, Cecilia is petting Arn's horse. The angle changes and she suddenly goes from having her hand on its nose to having both hands on her horse's reins. See more »

A nice film
27 July 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I must admit I am pleasantly surprised by this project. The scope of the story and the cinematic achievement were quite good. It's true, the story had some holes, big holes in it, but considering the time of the story it covered and the multitude of sub-plots I think they made quite a good job at it. Take into account that the story starts somewhere in rural Gothland, a kingdom before the formation of Sweden, then stretches for many years.. and distance, all the way to the Holy Land and the fall of Jerusalem. It is a story about the coming of age of a true knight, his unfortunate love story, sibling betrayal and it's consequences, military rivalry among those who should be united and an unexpected friendship with an honorable enemy. I was also pleased with some of the acting (good on the part of Joakim Nätterqvist, good enough for Sofia Helin) although I cannot understand the choice of an actress that looks much older than her characters' love interest. But the fight scenes where decent enough, the battles were made to look quite realistic, even though you can tell there probably weren't enough money for lots of extras to have. What I did not like at all was how much religion was added, but, I guess it all adds to the flavor of the times, supposedly. All in all, a movie I would recommend for anyone who likes historical films and.. Swedish cinema.
