Synopsis
The History of the movies is full of gaps. Of absences and oblivions which are as important, if not more, as its most popular characters. Without them the moving image would have never become the art and industry it is. One of these absences, at least to the eyes of the audiences, is that of Max Linder, one of the greats of silent movies, to many, the first real star of comedy, a character as fascinating as he is controversial. Elio Quiroga gives Max Linder a new life through a film essay using a wide array of resources –archive footing, professional actors, statements by experts...- to show us not only his story but also that of Maud’s, his daughter, and her struggle to retrieve the legacy and memory of her genius father, who was always absent.
