The winner of the 2021 Cannes Film Festival’s prestigious Palme d’Or, Titane is a thrillingly unique vision from Julia Ducournau (Raw) that deposits the viewer directly into its director’s headspace.
“The most shocking film of 2021. A beautiful, dark, twisted fantasy… it’s impossible to predict where it’s going to go next.” – Nicholas Barber, BBC
Moving with the logic of a dream—and often the force of a nightmare—the film begins as a kind of horror movie, with a series of shocking events perpetrated by Alexia (Agathe Rouselle, in a dynamic and daring breakthrough), a dancer with a titanium plate in her skull following a childhood car accident. However, once Alexia goes into hiding from the police, and is taken in by a grief-stricken firefighter (Vincent Lindon), Ducournau reveals her deployment of genre tropes to be as fluid and destabilizing as her mercurial main character. A feverish, violent, and frequently jaw-dropping ride, Titane nevertheless exposes the beating, fragile heart at its center as it questions our assumptions about gender, family, and love itself. (Dir. by Julia Ducournau, 2021, France, in French with English subtitles, 108 mins., Rated R)
