A fittingly impactful follow-up to her debut festival hit, Raw, writer and director Julia Ducournau's sophomore feature deservedly won the Palm d'Or at Cannes. Titane's visceral portrayal of trauma, grief, love, and unruly physicality offers a welcome, if perplexing and unsettling, addition to an increasingly predictable filmic landscape. Simplistic it's not, and many may find it a lot to comprehend, both in its sudden onslaughts of violence and its complex themes. But for those open to a challenge, this is exciting filmmaking that cements Ducournau as one to watch.

At its ripped-open heart is Rousselle's chaotic, fragmented, desperate Alexia, storming from one perplexing situation to the next, always with an eye on survival, whatever the cost. It's a performance that both captivates and repels, particularly in her harrowing interaction with surrogate father figure Vincent -- an equally tortured and compelling Vincent Lindon. Not for the faint-hearted, but for those with a hardy disposition and an open mind, it's one not to be missed.
