Les Parasites

A Feature film by Philippe de Chauveron

Produced by Odessa Films

Release in France : 20/01/1999


    Oulage has it all planned: New Year's eve, at the stroke of midnight, he'll finally kiss Brigitte, the girl he's madly in love with. That'll be the moment, because Brigitte is having a costume party. Oulage has it all planned—except for the fact that Brigitte has also invited a gang of truly parasitical friends: an old girl friend who never leaves Brigitte's side, a manic-depressive police officer, a paranoic psychopath, a cannabis-addict suffering withdrawal pains, a stunning Cuban woman on the prowl for immigration papers, and many others who do everything to ruin Oulage's life.

    "After having been cut from the soccer team, kicked off a boys' band, and dumped as a model from two or three fashion shows, I found myself sitting alone in front of a cup of coffee. So I hesitated a long time (about two seconds) before saying what the hell, why not play Mandrake in the movies?"

    (Oulage Abour, Actor)

    "Some good advice: never invite them!"
