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

Winner of the Palme d'Or, Cannes 2021. From director Julia Ducournau (RAW).

"Fluidly exploring themes of sexuality, gender identity, and parenthood in tandem with Ducournau’s now-signature body-horror sensibilities and gory gallows humour, TITANE is an unflinching foray to the very peaks (and depths) of human extremities." - Peter Kuplowsky, Toronto International Film Festival

"Ducournau's beautiful, dark, twisted fantasy is a nightmarish yet mischievously comic barrage of sex, violence, lurid lighting and pounding music. It's also impossible to predict where it's going to go next." – Nicholas Barber, BBC

Rated R for strong violence and disturbing material, graphic nudity, sexual content, and language
