Wild, courageous, self-confident: “Titane” by Julia Ducournau

“Titane” knocked jury president Spike Lee down in Cannes. He attested Julia Ducournau’s film a combination of genius and madness.

Berlin – With her triumph at the Cannes Film Festival, the French Julia Ducournau wrote festival history: She was only the second woman to win the Palme d’Or for the best film – and even the first woman to receive the coveted main prize alone, without it with one having to share with another director.

That was in July when Julia Ducournau’s “Titane” was awarded the Golden Palm. Now the work is also coming to our cinemas.

“Titane” is one of the most unusual films of the past few years. Much of what happens here on screen has never been seen like this: Alexia (Agathe Rousselle) is a young, self-confident woman who does not allow herself to be dictated to. But she’s also a serial killer who gets rid of all people who stand in her way in any way. And she has sex with a Cadillac and gets pregnant.
