Winner of the 2021 Cannes Palme d’Or, Julia Ducournau’s (Raw) incendiary film combines body horror, serial killings, gender fluidity, extreme violence, family drama and sex with cars.
As a child, Alexia is involved in a car accident that leaves her with a head injury. When she emerges from surgery with a titanium plate, she seems to have a strange emotional and visceral connection to cars. Years later, Alexia (Agathe Rousselle) works as an exotic dancer at motor shows where she writhes provocatively on automobiles, to a leering male audience. When one man harasses her, he is swiftly dispatched, kicking off a series of murders. But just as the violence ratchets up, Titane transforms into something far more tender, as Alexia takes on the role of a long-missing son of firefighter Vincent (Vincent Lindon). But this is no normal family idyll, for sex with cars can have unintended consequences. Proceed with extreme caution into this wildly inventive cinematic jolt.
The most shocking film of 2021… Julia Ducournau's Palme d'Or-winning film is a nightmarish yet mischievously comic barrage of sex, violence, lurid lighting and pounding music.
Nicholas Barber, BBC
Infamously, the first screening of Julia Ducournau’s cannibalism coming-of-age drama Raw had several audience members seeking medical attention afterwards. My advice to those moviegoers would be to book a sanitorium stay for her follow-up – just for the opening half hour alone.
Phil De Semlyen, TimeOut
