Fritz Lang in Germany: B 4 Hollywood; great!October 11, 2014
I have seen many Fritz Lang and other early movie maker's films. Fritz Lang was a" king" in Germany when he made this movie; all the money & artistic freedom he wanted, he got. Not like his days in Hollywood. I read many reviews before I bought this dvd. ALL were excellent! They were all correct. The Quality, Music, style, story, sets, cinematography, etc. of this silent film is great compared to many others at this time period. The restoration was very good considering not just the years gone by, but also many negative circumstances.Do some research & you will understand. The movie is a great Germany adventure/ fantasy based on Wagner's "Siegfried" I even went as far as getting a copy of The Metropolitan Opera's performance of "Siegfried" ( late 1990's/2000) by Wagner, which this film is based on at the local library...it was awesome!! I never got into much opera & this German cast and sets as well as many other elements was superb! I even watched other Met Opera's Wagner productions because of it. "Siegfried" stood out the most. If you like adventures & fantasy like "Lord of the Rings" & "THE Hobbit", then THIS movie on this dvd is a must!! No spoilers, but there are some similarities. Even if you do not like silent movies, overlook the fact that this is one. You will be surprised!
I would recommend this to a friend
