Agathe Rousselle makes a ferocious debut as a killer on the run, in director Julia Ducournau’s electrifying Palme d’Or-winning techno-chiller.

Unnerving newcomer Agathe Rousselle stars as Alexia, a young woman who has a titanium plate fitted into her head after a car accident as a child, and consequently develops an unusual connection to cars. As an adult she makes her living dancing at car shows until a violent altercation with a fan sends her on a bizarre, unpredictable journey (for both Alexia and us).

Gender fluidity, familial subversion, techno-sexual delirium and full-on violence make Titane (French for titanium) extreme-dream cinema at its very best… it’s a film with drive like no other.
