Titane: A Movie Beyond Imagination

Going beyond the imagination is what the directors and producers do. They show us that human imagination has no boundary, and one can put this imagination into a movie to showcase the world, what all possibilities are there. One such movie I would be talking about is “Titane“, which is far from any ordinary movie. When you read the plot, I am sure you will be shaken up.

This movie will blow up your mind like anything, so before you watch the movie, let's take a journey together.

What is in the Movie “Titane”?

Alexia and her family are involved in a vehicle accident, and she is equipped with a titanium plate in her head. She abandons her parents in favour of the automobile during her recuperation. 

Alexia is still fascinated by automobiles as an adult, revealing her head scar and a profane breast tattoo while acting as a sexed-up showgirl at a car show. She is sought after by both women and men as the most sexual showgirl, but she brutalises a male admirer; her own sexual preference is for vehicles, and she falls pregnant with a hybrid kid, whose tummy bloats fast. 

Are you thinking whether it is even possible? I am not sure about it but this is what movies shows, so let's continue reading!!

Alexia is on the run after being accused of assaulting the guy, cutting off her hair and tying her breasts while attempting to chop off her pregnant tummy. She fractures her own nose to seem more like Adrien, a little child who has been missing for ten years, and introduces herself to his father, Vincent, who is delighted with the narrative. 

His coworkers at the fire station are less persuaded, but they let the hyper-masculine Vincent project his vices onto Alexia instead of them, even as her gender becomes increasingly ambiguous.

Are you thinking about what exactly is happening? If you are, then we are on the same page; I am glad I found my sister/brother. But I am sure when seeing this plot while its execution in the movie will seem more realistic. So you should watch it after reading this article.

What Do You Think “Titane” Has Won Some Accolades?

On July 13, 2021, Titane had its international debut at the Cannes Film FestivalSpike Lee, the jury president, was ordered in French to announce the “first award” at the start of the closing ceremony but misunderstood the term to mean “first place.” As a result, he announced the film's Palme d'Or victory too soon. 

Ducournau is the second female director to receive the prize, following Jane Campion's The Piano in 1993, and the fourth female overall, following Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux‘s performances in Blue is the Warmest Color in 2013.
