Fritz Lang’s Die Nibelungen Duology (1924): 2 Movies


Die Nibelungen is a Norse legend, written as an epic poem in Middle High German, around 1200. Would you like to read the book in English?

The story takes place in a fantasy world featuring dragons and dwarfs, but the main focus is on human emotions. It is such a colossal adventure that to do justice to it, director Fritz Lang decided to release it in two parts, totalling 5 hours. It is often referred to as the Lord of the Rings of the silent era.
