Linder and his love for boxing
3 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

"Max Boxeur Par Amour" has great comedian Max Linder playing as referee on a improvised boxing match between two experienced fighters (Maurice Tourneur and Charles de Rochefort), but the match doesn't go all that well because Max keeps interrupting them, changing the rules of the game and sometimes even being a victim of their punches and punching them back. Later on, he replaces one of the fighters and becomes a contender, despite his short stature and clumsy acts but succeeding with good tricks to win the fight.

A harmless and amusing silent comedy that seemed to be the source of inspiration for many comedians of the period to use such sport as a comical device - Chaplin in his memorable moment in "City Lights" - and Linder proved way earlier that such was a hilarious and effective contribution to comedy with some thrills, creating a great expectation in situations that seem taken from granted and with the comic actor finding his best ways to defeat his opponent without getting weary or using of much force, mostly using of his abilities and geniality to become the champion. And always, very fun to see those moments. 8/10
