Ring of the Nibelungs is a fantasy film and mini-series based on the Norse mythology story titled: "the Volsunga Saga" and the German epic poem Nibelungenlied, which tells the mythological story of Siegfried the Dragon-Slayer. The film is set around the time when many Europeans had changed their religion from paganism to Christianity. The film is split into three parts, and comprises the story of Siegfried from childhood to his death. The young blacksmith Siegfried, who, not knowing that he is heir to a conquered kingdom, becomes popular with the Burgunds by slaying their bane, the dragon Fafnir. When the reward seems to be a huge treasure, Siegfried ignores the curse that lies on the hoard - which now seems to endanger his love to beautiful Norse warrior queen Brunhild. Ring of the Nibelungs also known by the titles The Curse of the Ring and Dark Kingdom: The Dragon King had an estimated budget of $23,000,000 and was thought to be the inspiration for the smash hit blockbuster Lord of the Rings trilogy. This movie is rated PG-13 for some intense action violence and brief sexuality/nudity.
