Overview

The second portion of German director Fritz Lang's two-part silent epic Die Nibelungen part one was 1924's Siegfried, Kriemhild's Revenge opens with mythical heroine Kriemhild Margarethe Schoen vowing to avenge the murder of her husband Siegfried. Realizing that her brother, King Gunther Theodor Loos, is too weak-willed to bring the culprit--her villainous half-brother Hagen Tronje Hans Adalbert Von Schlettow--to justice, Kriemhild plots her own private vengeance. Later, Kriemhild is obliged to participate in a "marriage of state" to Burgundian King Etzel Rudolph Klein-Rogge, who later played Rottwang in Lang's Metropolis. 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 much more so than any American film of 1924, Kriemhild's Revenge is admittedly rough sledding until its lively finale, especially when shown in its original 140 minute length cartoon director Chuck Jones managed to compact the same basic story into his 6-minute masterpiece What's Opera, Doc?

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
One of cinema’s first true visionaries, Fritz Lang’s influence can still be felt today. Four of his best-known early films comprise this fantastic box set. In addition to two previously issued classics -- the visually stunning science fiction landmark Metropolis, and the epic, two-part film of the Norse legend Die Nibelungen, -- the collection introduces to DVD two new Lang entries starring his beloved Gerda Maurus. The first is Lang’s 1928 thriller Spies, a splendid James Bond forerunner, and his final silent film, 1929’s Woman on the Moon. Both have been meticulously restored with footage never before available in the U.S., adding not only to the films’ beauty but enhancing the storytelling as well. Each disc also boasts a treasure trove of production stills, all the better to appreciate Lang’s singular visual style.

    A Must For All True Genre Fans

    If you like the old science fiction films than you'll absolutley love these movies. Not just classics of their time but the films also, especially Metropolis, are self evident of how ground breaking they were and are excellent examples of how truly visionary and genius Fritz Lang was.
