Classic German fantasy in two parts from director Fritz Lang.
Based upon the same Germanic myth that inspired Wagner's epic 'Ring' cycle of operas, the first part of the film, 'Siegfried', follows a man, Siegfried (Paul Richter), who believes that he has become invincible after slaying a dragon.
Hubris is dangerous, however, and Siegfried may discover to his cost that he has one significant area of vulnerability.
The second part, 'Kriemhild's Revenge', follows Princess Kriemheld (Margarete Schön), as she struggles to find a life beyond her love, Siegfried, amidst a kingdom torn apart by war and turmoil.
