Titane

This year’s Palme d’Or winner! This psychosexual and hypermasculine treat starts with Alexia, who gets a titanium plate in her head after surviving an ugly car crash with her family. She gets a sexual fascination for cars. What follows are a series of unique and unexplained crimes that lead to a father being reunited with his son who has been missing for 10 years. Director Julia Ducournau came out with the cannibalistic Raw a few years ago. She takes human results to new and brutal heights in this work, and gives us an original and ambitious sexual experience with murder and engine. She takes new steps from David Cronenberg’s Crash and drives on with ambitious twists, powerful sound design and brilliant photography.
