"Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?" -- Harry Warner, of Warner Bros. (1926) The Water-Funker (La peur de l'eau) Max's romance is derailed by a challenge to his fear of water. Only two comic moments: this first one at 9 minutes. The final comic moment (at 13 minutes) is Max in his best manic form. It's even more impressive because it is preceded by a chillingly grim portrayal of broken-hearted depression: like a cinematic display of manic-depression.
