« A mi-chemin entre Harold Pinter et Jérôme Deschamps, les dialogues sont formidables. » — Le parisien
Not (Benoit Poelvoorde), Europe’s oldest crust punk (which is not without its responsibilities!), returns home to a suburban chip shop run by a highly exuberant Brigitte Fontaine. There he finds his brother (Albert Dupontel), a bed linen salesman about to be fired. Despite their differences, and after a few colourful clashes, the two reconnect. On the frontlines of an economic and social crisis, will the pair manage to organize a resistance and set a revolution in motion?
After Mammuth, Louise Michelle and the ultimate artistic/anarchist works Aaltra and Avida, Belgians Gustave de Kervern and Benoît Delépine (the notorious duo of hilarious cultural rebels) are back. Their newest comedy boasts a punk sneer and a social conscience. The Poelvoorde/Dupontel combo works perfectly, and the set pieces are insanely fun. This is free-spirited and shambolic cinema that rejects perfection in favour of a genuine desire for contagious spontaneity. Featuring a delirious cameo by Depardieu, the film won a well-deserved special jury prize (Un certain regard) at Cannes.
