Oscars: France Selects ‘Titane’ As International Feature Submission https://t.co/t2VRsOIvKT— Deadline Hollywood (@DEADLINE) October 12, 2021
Julia Ducournau's Titane, which won the Palme d'Or back at July's edition of the Cannes Film Festival, has been selected by France as its submission for the International Feature Film category for the 2022 Academy Awards. Even though the film has been acclaimed, the selection is somewhat of a surprise given the more traditional films generally submitted in this category. Of all of the films submitted in the International Feature Film category, only five are chosen for nomination for the Academy Award.
The story follows a woman (Agathe Rousselle) with a metal plate in her head as a result of a car accident as a child, and her relationship with a firefighter (Vincent Lindon) who is missing a son.
The other two films shortlisted by France were Audrey Diwan’s Venice Golden Lion winner L’Evénement (Happening) and Cédric Jiminez’s Bac Nord (The Stronghold).
I'm still pressed they didn't submit PoaLoF!! Will this get a nom?
