5.0 out of 5 stars Quasi Wagner, 23 Mar. 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: DIE NIBELUNGEN (Masters of Cinema) (BLU-RAY) [1924] (Blu-ray)
But not quite. Unsure as to whether this film more accurately follows the legend but it is brilliant in every way.

It is as might be expected, quite naturalistic with none of the heavy and minimalist symbolism that pervades opera productions of the Wagner conception.

Visually it is magnificent with attention to every detail and with splendid visual effects. One might not be scared to death by Dragon but, given the technical restrictions of the era, it is not quite laughable.

If only filmakers of Hollywood would take some notice of the style and artistic integrity of these pioneers, they might produce something worth watching. But that is truly a dead industry, devoted simply to cheap effect, violence and making money. Still, presumably, they are giving the public what it wants and thereby achieving their target of multi-million turnovers. Where on earth will it all end??
