Fritz Lang's stunning two-part fantasy epic was the silent era's Lord of the Rings. In Kriemhild's Revenge, the story transitions from heroic adventure saga to a dark nightmare of war and bloodshed, as the widowed Kriemhild marries the brutish King of the Huns (Rudolf Klein-Rogge) as part of her plan to wreak vengeance on those who betrayed and murdered her beloved Siegfried. Breathtakingly imaginative with its expansive scope, innovative special effects, monumental production design and masterful storytelling, Die Nibelungen is unquestionably one of the crowning achievements of silent cinema.
