Like Matt Lucas is "the only gay in the village" (that's a Little Britain reference, people), Not (the excellent Benoît Poelvoorde) is the only punk that survived the 80s. He and his dog hang around the sad shopping boulevard in a French no man's land where his parents own a potato restaurant and his brother Jean Pierre has a rather depressing job selling mattresses. An outsider might think Jean Pierre's got it made: he's got a family, a respectable job. But this is the anarchistic universe of Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern, who have displayed an absurdist, Kaurismäki type of humor since their debut Aaltra. So obviously the homeless, unemployed Not is Le Grand Soir's hero, and he's about to show his brother the true meaning of freedom.
