What is the message of the film Titanium ?

One thing is sure, Titanium is a real experience on every level and one certainly does not come away from watching it unscathed. Julia Ducournau breathes new life into French genre cinema thanks to fine-tuned directorial work and sequences, each one more destabilizing than the last. But above all, through her undoubtedly queer main character, the director is interested in bodily transformations and questions of identity. She also plays with the codes of femininity: “The idea was to show that the contours of femininity are much more vague and flexible than what we see in the first sequence shot, in the car show: Alexia is extremely oversexualized, overiconized and obviously overstereotypical.“, she details in an interview given to Three colours. Note that by winning the Palme d’Or in 2021, Julia Ducournau made the history of the Festival by becoming the second woman to receive the supreme award after the New Zealander Jane Campion, honored for the sublime The piano lesson in 1993.
