Superb in every way. I first watched the mini-series on Netflix in 2 installments, about a year ago. I found this full-length DVD set on Amazon and didn't hesitate to put it on order. (And it arrived way ahead of scheduled delivery, ordered from seller "cddvd4u".)
Great casting, beautiful scenery and a solid storyline only begin to describe it. Stellan Skarsgard, as always, was rock-solid in a major supporting role (I hesitate to call it a "supporting" role because he commanded every scene he appeared in). Joakim Natterqvist was fabulous, as were most others.
The DVD keeps the original 6-part story in place, which is great because it gives you several well-placed opportunities to stretch and rest the eyes, which is really important because (if like me) otherwise you'll be riveted from start to finish.
English (SDH) captioning is a life-saver, but I enjoyed hearing the other languages spoken in their various settings.
All in all, I can't say enough good things about "Arn". It's one of the best historical fictions/movie productions I've ever seen. I may even try to find the book and give it a read.
