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

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 »

Hollywood adventure with a taste of Swedish drama
13 July 2008 | by SkruttanSee all my reviews

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.
