Second instalment of the epic masterpiece from genius Fritz Lang
Anyone who's seen the first instalment of Die Nibelungen (which should be anyone who's viewing this) will know exactly what to expect. Kriemhild's Revenge is the story of the vengeance for Siegfried's death by his wife, Kriemhild. One again, the genius Fritz Lang dazzles his audience with the larger than life plot and visuals, and the second instalment of the series is an epic in every sense of the word. On a personal note, I've got to say that this pair of films didn't do a great deal for me, other than educate in the history of cinema. The scene staging is fantastic, and the way that Lang makes every event a big thing ensures that the film has a real epic feel. The use of music is one of the film's strongest elements, as Gottfried Huppertz's score bodes well with the rest of the movie. This instalment is less frantic than the first, and that discredits it a little as the film isn't easy viewing anyway; and more scenes such as the one that saw the hero fighting a dragon in the first film wouldn't have gone amiss. But even so, this is a great story directed by a cinematic genius and this film is bound to appeal to people who like classic silent films more than I do.
