Titane (2021, W/D: Julia Ducournau) -- 2021 Palme d'Or winner



TITANE: A metal highly resistant to heat and corrosion, with high tensile strength alloys, often used in medical prostheses due to its pronounced biocompatibility.

Written and Directed by Julia Ducournau
Starring Agathe Rousselle, Vincent Lindon
Produced by Jean-Christophe Reymond, Jean Yves Rubin, Cssandre Warnauts, Oliver PŤre, Philippe Logie, Anne-Laure Declerck, Christophe Hollebek
I believe this gets released 10/1. I may try to see it at the NYFF since it has a screening the same days as Benedetta.

So the plot synopsis of this movie is the literal definition of titanium?

Does this sell it better?
During the first half of Julia Ducournau’s “Titane,” it’s hard to tell if you’re watching the most fucked up movie ever made about the idea of found family, or the sweetest movie ever made about a serial killer who has sex with a car, poses as the adult version of a local boy who went missing a decade earlier, and then promptly moves in with the kid’s still-grieving father. During the second half, it becomes obvious that it’s both — that somehow it couldn’t be one without the other.

Loved Ducournau's debut feature Raw (2016).

I really want to see this film.

Yea, Raw was pretty good. I liked that lead actress. She is in this too.

It seems like Neon is giving this a decent push. Tickets have been on sale for a while now. It’s playing at a bunch of my local theatres.

I saw that a local theater (literally an exit away from the school I teach at) is showing this next Friday, so I immediately bought a ticket

This was absolutely wild. I don't even know what to think about it... but I didn't hate it. Most general audiences definitely will.
Ducournau directs this batshit crazy story with such confidence. Agathe Rousselle's performance is insanely good.

Saw this a few hours ago. Definitely agree that the film is bonkers. It's going to take a few days for me to process all of it.

I absolutely loved the first 30-35 minutes of the film. It felt like being on a roller coaster but with a plastic grocery bag over your head the entire time

Agathe Rousselle is absolutely fantastic in the lead role. So much is asked of her over the 108-minute run-time.

I know the numbers don't sound amazing... but apparently did pretty decently at the BO.
Releasing on 562 screens, the French film grossed a mighty $515K, marking the largest opening for a Palme d’Or winner in over 17 years and the largest French opening in North America in over 15 years.

I was the only one in the theatre when I saw... which was great for me.

Same here!

The theater I went to was absolutely packed for a Saturday night. I showed up to the screening just as it started and I was the only one in there.

Saw this last night.


I pretty much thought it was sick, twisted and disgusting.


In other words...I enjoyed every minute of it.

Probably my fave movie of the year so far, topping The Green Knight, Annette and Pig.

This is definitely a "WTF did i just watch" movie. I might see it again if/when it shows up on one of my services. I want to look for a specific plot point I missed.

In my head Iím picturing this being a good Gaspar Noe companion piece. How does this compare to something like Irreversible?

The reviews made it sound like a Noe version of Tetsuo. I doubt that's accurate though.

Three weeks is typical for a lot things now... especially with these boutique distributors. I wonder how long before it hits Hulu.

Just saw an ad on Facebook from VUDU for this. Might rent this after seeing it in the theater, even though there's no comparison to the theater experience.
