Add To Cart
A key film from Sweden's first golden age of filmmaking, Sir Arne's Treasure has long ranked among the most famous, and famously hard-to-find, classics of the silent era. Now restored by the Swedish Film Instritute and featuring a magnificent orchestral score by Matti Bye and Fredrik Emilson, this landmark work by master filmmaker Mauritz Stiller can finally be seen in its glory. The lives of 3 Scottish mercenaries and an aging Swedish vicar and his family intersect in 16th-century Sweden and the unspeakable crime that results, forever alters a small coastal community. Special feature "Rediscovering Sweden: Peter Cowie Introduces the FIlms of Mauritz Stiller" is included.
