The Possessors

A Feature film by Denys de la Patellière

Produced by Intermondia Films, Filmsonor Marceau

Release in France : 19/11/1958

    Synopsis

    Noel Schoudler is a paterfamilias of a very sorry household. While he has worked hard for his creature comforts, he is cursed with a family of leeches and layabouts. Finally fed up, Noel gets tough and forces his relatives and progeny to fend for themselves. The film's storyline then fragments into the individual stories of these lazy creatures as they try to come to grips with self-reliance.
