French shocker ’Titane’ wins Palme d’Or

Shock-fest "Titane" took home the top Palme d'Or prize at Cannes on July 17, revealed early at the closing ceremony in an embarrassing slip-up by jury president Spike Lee.

French director Julie Ducournau is only the second woman to scoop the prize, for a movie that was one of the wildest, sexiest and most violent ever shown at the Cannes film festival.
