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 »
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 »
I actually put this in to my Netflix Instant Queue and then avoided it like so many others that I told myself I would get around to. After a few days I figured I would give it a shot. The movie had wonderful acting and the camera work was beautiful! I watched the American version and have since read that the American version is a combination of two movies that are almost twice as long. I will be spending my weekend looking for a copy of both movies to purchase and the American version as well. I will also be looking for the books. I have read that there is now a fourth book so I cant wait to find all of these so I can relive in over and over. Wonderful movie, stellar cast and beautifully shot. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I hope you find this helpful in your next movie selection.
