No doubt many articles on Maximum Linder begin out with his being source material for Charlie Chaplin, so it would be redundant to continue along those lines. Watching this short French movie is watching a real master at work. From facial expressions(including some rare close-ups for this time period) and physical contortions, Linder does it all. This film is really a one boy show, and very much worth the price of admission. The real use of course, can it still create children of the 21st century laugh, and the respond is a resounding yes! In this humorous exercise in ice skating, Linder conveys many emotions throughout, from frustration, elation and revenge. Most of the time he is the butt of the jokes, but when others are knocked about because of his ineptness we laugh at them as well, with our main character(appearing to be the large bully)soon to be punished by the "tough kids" among the crowd. Then how sorry we feel when Maximum is rebuked for his exuberance. But that's what makes "Max Learns to Skate" so beloved. The hero is real, one whom we can truly associate with.
I've only seen a several of early French comedian Maximum Linder's movies - and one of them was more a fantasy than a comedy - but what I've seen of him so far is extremely funny. As the another reviewer to date on this movie has mentioned, most articles compare Linder with his most popular fan, Charlie Chaplin, but as you watch this sometimes hilarious farce, you can see Chaplin mimicking - and, to be fair, often improving upon - Linder's actions here. Given how early this movie was made, Linder can considered to be a genuine comic trailblazer: nobody else had committed such naturally funny moves to celluloid as this funny Frenchman. Be sure to give this one a viewing if you receive the chance.
Maximum goes ice skating. Although he appears confident, he has no concept what he's doing and is a finished menace on the ice--knocking people down as he tries, in vain, to skate.According to IMDb, this is the first Maximum Linder movie where he appears as his rich dandy--a hero he perfected and played for years--much like Chaplin's 'little tramp'. Unfortunately, while this makes it an necessary film, it doesn't mean it's all that funny. It's a very easy setup and not much more than that--though it is great that they now filmed it outdoors during winter. However, just watching Linder fall and knock others down isn't funny when seen today--though perhaps audiences were less demanding in 1907 and thought this was hot stuff. After all, he DID go on to create few hundred films!
