From French writer-director Julia Ducurnau comes Titane, this year’s surprise winner of top prize at the prestigious Cannes film festival.

A Cronenbergian-style body horror, Titane follows Alexia, a young woman who – after a brutal automobile accident as a child which required a titanium plate being fitted into her skull – has since developed a sexual fixation with cars. As an adult, Alexia is violent and dangerous, though when her actions catch up with her, her attempt to assume a new identity results in an unexpected relationship.

Brutal, violent and dazzlingly original, Ducurnau’s film expertly builds upon the style and tone of her first film, coming-of-age cannibal horror Raw (2016).
