Synopsis

Two silent fantasy films embrace a German mythological saga as it relates to the story of Kriemhild's marriage to Siegfried. The first film "Siegfried" establishes larger-than-life heroic characters who are defined by tests of valor and rigid codes of honor. In order to win the hand of Kriemhild, Siegfried must win a bride for her brother, King Gunther. The second film "Kriemhild's Revenge" begins after the death of Siegfried, and weaves the treacherous tale of his widow's ungodly vengeance upon his murderers.
