The action was an idealized, somewhat naive depiction of health and beauty in conformity with nature. The film offered a contrast to the rather hopeless lifestyles available in Berlin and other large cities of Germany during the twenties and became an immediate success. Finally it became the most popular and most important German kulturfilm of this period.

The film features the first on-camera appearance of Leni Riefenstahl.
