clever but not funny
26 August 2007 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Proof that Germans are not good at humor and that even Herzog missteps.

Various people around a race track talk about protecting the horses from crazy fanatics, while an older man tries to run them off.

Surreal tale that doesn't really work. The bits go on way past the point of being funny, though there are some very amusing moments such as the man who trains horses by walking them around a tree for 36 hours, however since no horse could keep up the pace he has to trade off horses.

Its a long 12 minutes and the punchline, while amusing doesn't really add up to much.
