The Palm d’Or winner comes to Haugesund

4. August 2021

We are pleased to announce that the Palm d’Or winner from the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, Titane, will be screened in Haugesund during the 49th Norwegian Film Festival.

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. These lead to a father being reunited with the son who has been missing for 10 years. Julia Ducournau gives us an original and ambitious sexual experience with murder and engines. The Palm d’Or winner Titane is like a modern, female Cronenberg saturated with powerful sound design and brilliant cinematography.

In addition to Titane, we show the Cannes films Clara Sola, The Gravedigger’s Wife, Compartment No. 6, Olga and the 49th Norwegian Film Festival opening film The Innocents.
