Julia Ducournau’s film, Titane is a body horror film that features a car, a woman and a hybrid baby… we’ll let you do the math on this one. But this year he won the prestigious Palme d’Or at Cannes.
If you are a fan of international movies and love grotesque body horror movies, we have a treat for you. This year, Julia Ducournau, a French director became the second director to win the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival for her new film – Titanium. The Palme d’Or was awarded last to Parasite, while Fahrenheit 9/11, Pulp Fiction, Apocalypse Now, Taxi Driver and The Piano are some of the notable films to have won the same in the past.
In 2021, the Palme d’Or was awarded to Titane. The film was written and directed by Ducournau. The Franco-Belgian co-produced film stars Agathe Rousselle, Vincent Lindon, Garance Marillier and Laïs Salameh. But the plot is quite unusual, to say the least.
The plot involves Alexia, the protagonist of the story who survives a car crash as a child. This leads him to acquire a unique relationship with automobiles. After her brain surgery, when she sees a car she loves, Alexia begins to become intimate with the vehicle. One thing leading to another, she then carried a hybrid child resulting from the exchange. While this may be a rudimentary explanation of the plot, the story’s message, we believe, paints a bigger picture. If you want to know how it goes, give him a watch.
The film received mixed reviews, but mostly positive. However, some have wondered if he deserves the prestigious Palme d’Or.
