Editorial Reviews

A Japanese man searches the Internet to find his dream car, a 1967 Citroen DS (Deese/Goddess) - the same make of car driven by Alain Delon in Le Samourai. Travelling all the way to Australia to purchase it, he finds the seller dead. A gorgeous 17-year-old blind girl with a dark, haunting past (the amazing Rose Byrne, Marie-Antoinette, Wicker Park) volunteers to take him to the proper owner. This unlikely couple embark on a strange and erotic journey into the arid Australian desert, populated by abandoned mining towns, stark, desolate landscapes as the two uncover mystery, adventure, tragedy and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Uniquely Disturbing yet Hauntingly Beautiful May 1, 2006
By Vera
Format:DVD
This film will have you guessing till the very end. It's an artistic psychological drama with a disturbing, if not happy, ending. Beautifully shot, and perfectly cast! What more could you want?

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Goddesses and a Guy May 9, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I discovered a new actress when I accidently picked up an Aussi film called THE GODDESS OF 1967. I was searching for a certain Chinese woman director and mistakenly thought her name was Clara Law. But this turned out to be a happy mistake.

While this film has a familiar plot, Clara Law put it together in such an unexpected way that it made every minute worth while. Surprise plot twists. Funny moments. Bold colors. Unexpected composition. Dramatic editing. And two superb performances in the lead.

There's Japanese actor Rikiya Kurokawa who plays a young man from Tokyo who goes to Australia to buy a classic car -- a pink 1967 Citroen DS (aka, "Goddess") -- and winds up driving a young blind woman across country to some mysterious destiny. Flashbacks provide clues. The blind woman is played by a very talented and beguiling Australian actress named Rose Byrne. And she's a goddess herself.

Ironically, Rose is often filmed with her face in shadows. Ironic because (1) she is playing a blind woman (shouldn't the other people be in shadows?), and (2) because she is remarkably beautiful.

This is an surreal movie with an eerie beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING MOVIE October 1, 2005
By C. Wood
Format:DVD
I saw this movie at the 2000 (or 2001) Portland International Film Festival. It was the best movie at the festival. I have been waiting to buy it since. It is incredibly beautiful. It has some brutal parts, but it shows how people can rise above their circumstances. I am not a good enough writer to adequately discribe this movie.

A new fave of mine. If you have seen Rose Byrne in anything else it will make her performance here even more jaw-dropping.
