Julia Ducourneau is the second woman director to ever receive the coveted Palme d'Or (in 1993, Jane Campion, The Piano Lesson, shared the top prize with Chen Kaige, Farewell My Concubine). We presented Ducournau's short film Junior at the 11th SFFF in 2012. Her first feature film, the cannibal horror-coming of age comedy Raw came out in 2016.
In Titane, a father (Vincent Lindon) is reunited with his son, who disappeared ten years ago. Simultaneously, a series of gruesome murders places the region under pressure. Alexia (Agathe Rousselle), a model in a car showroom, has all the characteristics of the ideal victim…
In a highly positive review, the BBC called Titane "the most shocking film of 2021,” and the film just won the “People's Choice Award for Midnight Madness” at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival. A body horror thriller, Titane is Rated R for strong violence and disturbing material, graphic nudity, sexual content, and language.
If you dare to take the voyage, it is worth the trip. Buckle up!
