The Knight Arn is sent on a last mission against Saladin. He has to win this battle, before he can go home to Sweden, and finally marry his Cecilia and start a family. But the peace back home is threatened by the Danes.
Swedish Public Service (SVT) withdrew support from the project only months before its release, citing lack of quality and unsatisfying amount of material as main reasons. The studio (SF) instead claimed the disagreement was due to budget concerns. Rival broadcaster TV4 stepped in as co-financier. See more »
Arn's horse changes appearance all the time though it is supposed to be the same horse. Most clearly is the white spot in the forehead which comes and goes between scenes. See more »
This is a movie which is very much like a Hollywood adventure, but in Sweden. This movie could have been really bad if it wasn't for the good acting(Stellan Skarsgård, Bibi Andersson, Michael Nyquist, Gustaf Skarsgård, Sofia Helin and more), the wonderful music and some very good fighting scenes. It's nice too see a Swedish high-budget movie that can be seen by anyone who loves epic tales with good drama. Joakim Nätterqvist is surprisingly good in the leading role as Arn and he will probably become one of Sweden's next big stars. This is a very good movie that i can recommend to anyone who likes adventure, epic, drama and Swedish movies.
