Virtually unknown and unseen, Gallery of Monsters is not really a horror film.
It is, instead, an exciting, tender, and
occasionally avant-garde love story that follows the lives of circus
performers, and, in particular, the devoted relationship of Riquet and
his wife Ralda. The surrounding cast of characters, which includes a
giant, a little person, and a woman with only half a body, are lovingly
depicted as a kind of circus family. There are some “monsters”
afoot—such as the evil and lecherous circus owner, but they mostly
remain behind the scenes.
