Format: Blu-ray
A good film in its own right, but still, not the original. I contacted the Swedish producers and they said that there were no plans to release the film in its original shape. The film began life as a TV miniseries, of several hours in length (I think about 6). It was released theatrically in Scandanavia as two films, each about two and a half hours long; and released in this, much shorter, so-called International version, i.e., a dumber, action-oriented version supposedly to appeal to us poorly educated North Americans. Sigh. Since this is likely the only version that will ever be released in Region A, you'd be better off getting it rather than waiting for a (so far purely hypothtetical) longer version. If you have a multi-region blu-ray player, it might be possible to order the two, Scandinavian discs, if you can find them at all, that is.

Reading the Amazon reviews within this release, I was taken aback by the fact that this was a Swedish miniseries and that this dvd release by E1 entertainment is a truncated version. Well, truncated is better than nothing. It is magnificent and harkens back to the old tried and true epics we fondly remember. The director ,Peter Flinth, has given us a grand epic of honor and treachery all focused on the love story between Arn and Cecilia with religion, once again, separating true love. It contains so much passion with some great performances within its structure. You will recognize of course Bibi Anderson as the mother superior and Sven Bertil Taube ( the only other movie I know of his is a guilty pleasure- 'PUPPET ON A CHAIN') as the Bishop also Steven Waddington from 'THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS' as the Grand Master of the Templar Knights. Sorry, I'm a sucker for these type of epics and this one reinforces my belief that other countries are making incredible product. If you want an uplifting, soaring piece of filmmaking with breathtaking photography and a rousing music score by Toomas Kantelinen, click the add to cart button. I just can't figure out why nobody has signed the actor who played Saladin-Milind Soman- to other projects over here. He really steals the show. The release has two great featurettes on the making of the film which brings you up to speed on the production. Highly recommended.

I knew nothing of this film until I started seeing advances on the video release. It's definitely my kind of flick so I thought I'd give it a shot and I'm glad I did.

This is a really good story in the historical epic category. It propounds to be based in fact and, though I don't know how much they had to tweek it for script purposes, it contains certain things that feel true.

Arn is a Swede who falls in love with a woman who is betrothed to another family. He knocks her up so she has to do 20 years in a convent while he has to do twenty years in the Crusades as a Knight Templar. As he himself was raised by the church he's a very serious dude. He was also schooled well in combat by a monk who did time in the Crusades so he can fight with the best of them. He heads off to the Holy Land where he becomes key in winning some battles. His time is up so he heads home to be with his woman but ends up facing a whole new challenge. It seems Sweden isn't all that united and there is a new grab for power he needs to thwart.

This is an Historical Epic in the best sense. Great locations, costumes and lots of extras. You like Arn. He's a cool guy because he's good and devout, but can kick booty if he needs to. You like Cecelia his girlfriend. She's pretty and has a good spirit. It's acted well, shot well, edited well. The music score is good, though maybe a bit too similar to the "Lord of the Rings" score but that's a minor quibble. I also could have used a bit more in the building of the relationship between the two Cecelias, but again, it's a minor quibble. Surprisingly, they spent little effort on the major battle scenes. Were this Ridley Scott or Antoine Fuqua we'd have been dazzled by meticulous staging and swordplay. But here the director just didn't seem that interested.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Ralf V. Antoni on August 7, 2011
Format: DVD
This fabulous production IS available, all ca.258 minutes of it, almost 5 hours, from AmazonGermany, in a 4 disc set, 3 discs for the movie and 1 disc for extras. It's a tad expensive...and it's only subtitled in German. With shipping, I ended up paying about $40...the shipping cost more than the boxed set! The box is handsome and well designed and the video and audio quality excellent.

As the dialogue is minimal, the subtitling was not all that challenging for my 3 years of college German (35 years ago). The story tells itself quite well visually, and the few times the dialogue became somewhat complex, it was easy enough to freeze the picture and work on the subtitles. If anyone is game, it's worth the effort. Keep a dictionary handy. AmazonGermany works just like AmazonUSA and AmazonUK. It's easy enough to click your way through to checkout.

The movie is spectacular. I have to agree with the reviewer who said "Arn" is in the great epic filmaking style of the past. I enjoyed every moment of it. The sets and costumes were impressive and made the time and places recreated very convincing. The battles were well done. Though not full blood-and-guts as a larger budget may have allowed, there was tremendous tension in the battle preparations and the initial assault. Some brief battle scenes and then the aftermath, showing the carnage and slaughter. Very effective. The audio helped tremendously in building the drama.

Beside the many actors reviewers have pointed out, I should mention Michael Nyquist ("The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," etc.) as Arn's father. It was a pleasure seeing him again as I enjoyed the Millenium film trilogy greatly. All the actors were fine and did their work well.
