I'd rate it higher, but I couldn't understand anything without the subtitles. that being said, a guy does use his hand to chop randomly through blocks of wood, which is cool, and it's a doc about horse racing without much actual horse racing.

The flamingo scene is the best.

I didn't think I would like this Werner Herzog documentary short, but it is actually kinda funny althouh it probably isn't meant to be. I just loved that crazy one-armed man, haha.

Short Herzog film that is apparently just a joke where people at a racetrack keep repeating the same weird dialogue. Maybe it's some kind of political allegory? Who knows...

A sort of a mockumentary short about people who protect race horses. Coming just before Even Dwarfs Started Small, you can see the same sense of absurdist humor emerging, but there just isn't much an idea here. It seems to have the same amateurish "bunch of guys just fuckin' around" quality as the earlier The Unprecedented Defence of the Fortress Deutschkreuz. A very minor blip in Herzog's career.

Herzog's first work with narrative is successful but unrefined.

This short film could've been a companion piece to "Even Dwarfs Started Small," since its characters were so bizarre. It could also be seen as a dry-run to Herzog's later films, where he often used ordinary people alongside actors like Klaus Kinski.

A fun short film. I liked the one armed man quite a lot. Worth hunting down if your a real Herzog fan!

Werner Herzogā??s website describes this early short succinctly as an "elaborate on-camera practical joke." Well, itā??s not exactly elaborate or that funny. Itā??s basically a fake documentary about people who work with horses and try to protect them from fans. It seems as if Herzog was experimenting with trying to stage spontaneous human behavior, which is something that he would later be able to do without seeming so staged
