Trivia

Attila's castle was built life-size. The fire was started by Fritz Lang himself by shooting an arrow, tipped with burning magnesium, onto the roof. See more »

Goofs

At 19:38, as you see the treasure in the water, you can see a hand in the reflection to the left of the sword. Presumably it was filmed in a fish tank. See more »

A tad slow but fascinating.
4 September 1999 | by (Canberra, Australia) – See all my reviews

Like grand opera, this film and its predecessor, "Siegfried", are a little too slow in pace, but the visual treats are unforgettable. It is best to see the two films together, but the sequel is not as good, mainly because there is not very much story left. Most of the time it's just Kriemhild wandering around looking vengeful, but Margarethe Schoen does it so well! The performance of Rudolph Klein-Rogge as Attila the Hun is wildly energetic

  • he is magnificent. But you can't help thinking why don't they just kill


Hagen Tronje and get on with life, especially after he murders the baby. Something to do with Teutonic loyalty apparently.

But who can forget the rabbit-warren Hun village, and all those grubby Huns running about. Of course the film is racist as the Teutons somehow survive against overwhelming numbers of Huns - no wonder Hitler liked this film. "Siegfried" was very fascist too, with the glorious Aryan impregnable and very gorgeous (thanks to Paul Richter). But "Kriemhild's Revenge" lacks the wonderful fantasy sequences of "Siegfried" like the dwarves kingdom and especially that superb dragon fight - but at least here Kriemhild herself gets some balls - she seemed so stupid in "Siegfried".
