Cannes Film Festival: Titane wins top Palme d’Or prize


Titane – an outlandish film packed full of sex and violence – has won the top award at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, the BBC reports.

Director Julie Ducournau is only the second woman to receive the Palme d’Or and the first female to win it alone.

The film, which is Ducournau’s second feature, tells the story of a young female killer who has sex with cars after surviving a childhood crash.

The award was prematurely revealed by US director Spike Lee at the beginning of Saturday’s ceremony.

The jury president let the big secret slip, before telling the audience: “I apologize for messing up.”

Ms Ducournau was still emotional when her film was officially announced as the winner, adding: “This evening has been perfect because it’s been imperfect.”

Titane had split critical opinion and has been described as one of the most shocking ever shown at the festival.
