Description by OLDIES.com:
In 16th-century Sweden, the lives of three Scottish mercenaries and an aging Swedish vicar and his family intersect, and in the unspeakable crime that results, a small coastal community is forever altered. As the three mercenaries struggle to escape from the town, they find that nature has conspired against them -- all outbound ships are frozen in the ice -- forcing them to remain until the tragic tale reaches its catastrophic conclusion.
Made at a time when Sweden was a dominating force in international cinema, Sir Arne's Treasure shows Mauritz Stiller at the peak of his filmmaking powers, working with Nobel Prize-winning author Selma Lagerlof. Aided by the pioneering cinematographer Julius Jaenzon (The Outlaw and His Wife), Stiller fills every frame with ice and snow to emphasize the oppressiveness of the freezing conditions and the forbidding terrain. Rarely has winter seemed so threatening, and rarely has the landscape of Sweden been used to such magnificent effect.
