A girl is injured in a car accident as her father explodes at her for humming too loudly. To save her life, surgeons insert a titanium plate into her head, which seems to give her a metal fetish. As a grown woman, Alexia (Agathe Rousselle in her very first film role) is an exotic dancer at car shows, sexually aroused by the cars themselves.
Also, she's a serial killer.
Loaded with graphic horrors, Titane won this year's Palme d'Or, only the second film directed by a woman to have done so. Ducournau has already had one cult hit with the cannibal movie Raw, and with Titane, she establishes herself as a horror auteur par excellence.
Please note: Titane contains sequences which may affect those with photosensitive epilepsy.
