review by
Mike Haberfelner

When she was seven, Alexia (Adèle Guigue as 7 year old, Agatha Rousselle as adult) was involved in a car accident, and as a result has a titanium plate transplanted into her head. All grown up, Alexia has become a dancer, and she's especially effective as car shows as she seems to have a special connection with cars - and indeed, back home she frequently has sex with her car. She has no interest in human relationships of course, and those who come to close to her she stabs with her hairpin. But she does feel drawn to fellow dancer Justine (Garance Marillier), or rather her nipple piercings, and eventually that leads to sex - which in turn leads to Alexia killing not only her but all of her flatmates. Now this killing spree doesn't go unnoticed, and the police are also quick to pinpoint her as the guilty party - but by that time, Alexia has long gone on the run, has shaved her beautiful blond hair and dressed up as a man. When she comes across a missing person poster for a man called Adrien, she notices a vague resemblance, breaks her nose to look more like him, and eventually presents herself to Adrien's father, fire chief Vincent (Vincent Lindon), who is so happy to have his missing son back he overlooks many incongruencies and gives Alexia a home and a job with his team of firefighters. Thing is, before long Alexia notices she's pregnant - and most likely from her car - and as good as she is with hiding that fact, she won't be able to hide it forever ...


Titane is quite an unusual film for sure. Now of course, parallels to David Cronenberg's body horror movies are undeniable, but despite shared motives, Titane doesn't ape Cronenberg but goes its own path, which over the course of the story leads away from horror in the more traditional sense of the word and instead becomes a very twisted character piece packed with absurd and often macabre ideas - sure making it one of the mure unusual films to ever have nabbed the Palme d'Or in Cannes. But that said, Titane is not a perfect film, some of its shock elements seem too calculated while at times the direction is a little too stylized - but it still makes for a very unusual watch.
