I can't comment on the historical veracity of the film - but, as other reviewers have commented, it does share quite a bit in common with Braveheart - action, forbidden romance, drama - all mixed into one. Although bloodshed is kept somewhat to a minimum, it has a good story and compelling characters. If you like this historic-esque action/dramas, it is recommended.

"Arn: The Knight Templar" by Yojimbo

A disgraced monk who is uncannily skilled in the art of war becomes a Knight Templar defending Jerusalem from the advancing army of Saladin. This Scandinavian co-production is a historical swashbuckler very much in the vein of the likes of Braveheart, combining romance and adventure in a medieval setting.

Kind of A Swedish Braveheart

Arn The Knight Templar is about a fictional knight based off of Jan Guillou's book trilogy. The film is about a young monk who ends up excommunicated and serves as a Knight Templar in the Third Crusade. Although, I must warn you that there's not really much content on the battles or the war as I expected; it's mostly his relationship with his wife. This movie reminds me a lot of Braveheart; a medieval hero who uses faith and hope to bring peace but ends up costing him. Unlike Braveheart, this movie is more of a drama instead of an action film. The two most noteworthy elements of the film is its use of languages (Legitimate: Latin, English, Swedish, and Arabic) and its unique perspective on religion. It is strongly based around a belief in God but has a very skeptical view on clergy. This ...
