Arn: The Knight Templar

When clan leaders find out that the romance between the son of a nobleman and a maid who has been promised to another has gone beyond the platonic stage, the young man is banished to fight in The Crusades and the maid is shut up in a convent. The film, directed by Peer Flinth, follows the 20 year adventure they go through trying to get back to each other. The scale is epic, with plenty of bloody battle scenes, but Flinth never loses sight of the fact that it is the love of two people at the center of it all.
