Storyline

Now Brunhild knows by which treason she was won for king Gunther of Burgund by Siegfried of Xanthen, and has been revenged by his foul murder by Hagen, more bloody revenge is inevitable. Hagen steals the Nibelungen-treasure to sink it in the stream and manages to kill Alberich and seize his invisibility-cap. Queen Kriemhild is packed of to an abbey so her son may grow up to become a prelate, but Hagen's men raid them and kill the child. She now accepts to become the wife of Etzel, king of the truly barbaric Hun nomads and invites the Burgund court nomenclature at their Danube court for their heir's baptism a few years later, but prepared a bloody conspiracy with her xenophobic brother-in-law behind her surprisingly chivalric husband's back, while Gunther accepts, hoping to avoid a far bloodier war, despite the danger for his party of knights, which materializes...

simply great
22 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is a great movie. Great directing, photography, score, script (I really liked the way they worked some of the older Nibelungenstories like the Thidreksaga and the Völsungsaga into it), and acting (Karin Dor is great as Brünhild, the actress playing Kriemhild is *awesome*, and Etzel is great, too). Most reviews of the Fritz Lang movies say that these two movies are crap, but they are not, whoever says this hasn't watched them!

But avoid the movie "Das Schwert der Nibelungen" aka "Those whom the Gods wish to destroy" (or something like this), they just cut together the two parts ("Siegfried" and "Kriemhilds Rache") to one single movie. And if you are fond of the score, get the 2-CD release by Cobra Records of the nearly complete score for the first and the second part.
