Die Nibelungen: Siegfried Geregisseerd door Fritz Lang


All of Ufa Studio’s resources, the medium’s every cog and wheel, marshaled into a mammoth-production that nevertheless exudes a defiantly personal blend of fantasy and politics. A couple of lifeless demigods adorn the altar in the closing image, just the tip of the horror Lang has still ahead.

Everywhere in Lang is a picture-box image of crosshatched lines, meshed teeth, or foregrounds imposing and imprisoning backgrounds—or vice versa. In Die Nibelungen, the frames are filled with UFA’s most lavish set construction and wardrobe design, to a degree of splendor that rivals Eisenstein’s Ivan the Terrible series.

In these conditions I greatly preferred the shabby, plot-hole ridden picture of 1944 [Ministry of Fear], its baffled, murky and oppressive paranoia and its the disjointed aura of feeling exiled in one’s own country to the portentous, “meaningful”-masterful totemic super film of 1924 [Die Nibelungen].
