melodrama in a circus
19 September 2017 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Directed and played by handsome Jaque Catelain, very close friend to Marcel L'Herbier, "la Galerie des Monstres" is a rare melodrama in a circus in Spain. It is his second direction after "le Marchand de Plaisir".

Jaque Catelain : "Showing two persons ripped from their primitive existence by their destiny, driven from town to town through the world in a traveling circus where their youth, their naïve love, unleash passions and drama ... To show the contrast between artificial movement of dizziness, of pleasure of a fair, and the pain of two defencedless young people - here is "la Galerie des Monstres" - script I wanted above all accessible to the audience - touching, human." Jaque Catelain was helped for directing by Marcel L'Herbier for his very precious artistic direction and by Calvacanti as a first assistant. "La Galerie des Monstres" is a subject close to "Freaks" by Tod Browning, but much less heartbreaking.

For silent movies lovers, it is sad to say there ain't any DVD edition.
