Arn: The Knight Templar, Swedish historical mini-series

If you have any interest in The Crusades (and this will give you some perspective on current events in the Middle East),  “Arn: the Knight Templar,” a two part drama currently available on Netflix may be your cup of tea or glogg. The production, based on a trilogy of books written by Jan Guillou, depicts the fictional Swedish Knight Templar Arn Magnusson in his life in Scandinavia and his later role as a Crusader against Saladin and the Saracen hordes in the Holy Land of the 1100’s. This is truly an international effort with Swedish, Latin, French, English and Arabic languagues spoken with English sub-titles. The show has romance, fantastic cinematography, realistic acting and thrilling action sequences. Highly recommended, especially if you are a history buff and unafraid of a little extra reading. Hey, you text, right?
