French Film Festival: Titane (18)


French Film Festival: Titane (18)

F Rated Film
Saturday 27th November 2021 - Thursday 2nd December 2021

Dir. Julia Ducournau, France, 2021, 108 mins, subtitled. Cast. Agathe Rousselle, Vincent Lindon, Garance Marillier, Laïs Salameh.

One of the most provocative Palme d’Or winners ever, Titane is a blast of lawless inspiration. Alexia, a young woman who, following an accident in her childhood, has an unusual bond with cars, consummated by a strange encounter with one of the vehicles she writhes on in her job as a motor show dancer. When her murderous tendencies make her a fugitive, she disguises herself as a boy and forms a bond with the chief of a firefighting unit (French A-lister Vincent Lindon, venturing far outside familiar territory). Gender fluidity, techno-sexual delirium and full-on violence take Titane into the far reaches of genre futurism. It’s extreme-dream cinema that pulls no punches in its metallic KO.

Please note: this film contains sequences that may affect those with photosensitive epilepsy.
