Following her debut Raw, Julia Ducournau provides a terrifying take on the impact a metal plate fitting has on the desires and behaviours of a woman whose depraved lust for violence knows no bounds.

Alexia (Agathe Rousselle) is a little girl injured in a car accident, whose life is saved by surgeons placing a titanium plate inside her head. As a grown woman, Alexia is an exotic dancer at car shows, sexually aroused by the vehicles themselves.

What's more, Alexia has extremely violent tendencies, resulting in her taking on the identity of a boy who went missing ten years prior and forming an ambiguous bond with the boy's father.

Titane won this year’s Palme d’Or, the highest honour at the Cannes Film Festival, with Julie Ducournau becoming only the second female director to do so. Ducournau already had one cult hit with the cannibal movie Raw, and with the success of Titane, she has established herself as a horror auteur.
