Switzerland 1978. 16mm, colour, 96 min.
The race for promised happiness or the search for the lust paradise - fitness is another world for this. Why ? Man stands today at the bottom of a precipice, who is hopelessly sick. Hopelessly? He has sinned this is loudly proclaimed and a mighty machine is put into operation so that, in his free time, ho can work and pant, move and make amends in order Io continue fulfilling his tasks and to adjust to his stress situation - and continue to damage his health. A film about a mass phenomenon and methods of adjusting: from nudism to robotlike physical training. Mens sana in corpore sano... but happiness lags behind.
