Titane: a metal highly resistant to heat and corrosion, with high tensile strength alloys, often used in medical prostheses due to its pronounced biocompatibility. Centered on the enigmatic, compulsive, and uncontrollable Alexia (Agathe Rousselle), Titane seemingly traces the aftermath of a series of unexplained crimes and the reunification of Vincent (Vincent Lindon) with his son, who has been missing for ten years. But nothing in Titane is what it seems. As the viewer is thrust into Alexia’s world of cyborg bodies, solitary foreboding, fast cars, and ravenous tenderness, we are forced to reconcile with our inability to control the uncontrollable. Winner of the 2021 Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, Titane is the second directorial feature of Julia Ducournau (Raw, 2017), only the second woman director to ever win one of cinema’s most prestigious prizes. In French with English subtitles. Contains explicit violence.

 

“In an era when nearly everything that can be done on film already has been, Titane forges something sensational from nerve and pure metal, and makes it new.” — Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

“This year's Palme d'Or winner is a symphony of disturbing and dark madness unlike anything you've ever seenand I mean that in a good way” — Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times

"An astonishing and horrific thriller that has been constructed, like few films I've ever seen, to make you turn away from its frequent eruptions of savagery but then look back, just as often, to savor its mysterious beauty.” — Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
