Movie Reviews

C. Wood | Portland, OR USa | 10/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Two Goddesses and a Guy
J. A. Eyon | Seattle - USA | 05/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Uniquely Disturbing yet Hauntingly Beautiful

"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?"
