The self-professed “oldest punk in Europe with a dog,” Not's  chaotic energy periodically exploding into gangling fits of rage. He’s a forty-something non-conformist who wears the punk uniform of camouflage fatigues, mohawk and jackboots. Not’s brother, Jean-Pierre, is a mattress salesman in a chain store and he is Not’s opposite, straight-laced and line-toeing. When Jean-Pierre’s life starts to unravel and he is threatened with unemployment, the veneer of acquiescence quickly crumples and it doesn’t take long for Not to woo him over to the rebellious side of the street. A satirical slap to the capitalist order - winner of Jury Prize of Un Certain Regard section in Cannes 2012.
