Its ten minutes of muscle men pumping iron and flexing while Jazz music plays. Every now and then a title asks if this Hercules will perform one of the labors and we then cut to what that might mean in the modern day.
A curious beginning to Herzog's career. Considering the other films that the director has produced it seems very much out of place, although his use of music is very much in evidence. Its not much of anything mostly because it doesn't have time to be much of anything. I don't know if its really worth bothering with unless you're a fan of the directors work or manage to see it in conjunction to other early Herzog films (his website is selling his shorts collected)
