Movie: Die Nibelungen: Kriemhilds Rache
Director: Fritz Lang
Produced by: Deutsche Universum Film AG
Released By: Kino On Video
MPAA Rating:

The second portion of German director Fritz Lang’s two-part silent epic Die Nibelungen, Kriemhild’s Revenge opens with mythical heroine Kriemhild vowing to avenge the murder of her husband Siegfried. Realizing that her brother, King Gunther, is too weak-willed to bring the culprit–her villainous half-brother Hagen Tronje–to justice, Kriemhild plots her own private vengeance. Later, Kriemhild is obliged to participate in a “marriage of state” to Burgundian King Etzel. At the wedding festival, she takes the Burgundian revellers hostage, promising to free them if they’ll kill Hagen Tronje, who is one of the guests. Their refusal leads to the film’s climactic bloodfest, during which Kriemhild metes out justice with Siegfried’s magic sword. An astonishingly elaborate and expensive effort, Kriemhild’s Revenge is admittedly rough sledding until its lively finale, especially when shown in its original 140 minute length
