Julia Ducournau's Palme d'Or-winning film is a nightmarish yet mischievously comic barrage of sex, violence, lurid lighting and pounding music.
Please be advised that this film includes strong violence, graphic nudity and disturbing sexual content.

In Detail

Alexia, a young girl gets injured in a car accident. To save her life, surgeons insert a titanium plate into her head, which seems to give her a metal fetish.  Cut to years later: Alexia (now played by Agathe Rousselle), head still half-shaved, makes a living stripping at car shows. She is a solitary and forbidding figure, even more so when she suddenly murders an aggressive fanboy who follows her to her car.

Later that night, she crawls into a flame-painted gas-guzzling Cadillac for another rapturous reunion, only this time it's sexual. Provocative, daring and fearlessly original, this film is impossible to pigeonhole defying all sorts of cinematic conventions and tropes.
