The Goddess of 1967

Goddess Of 1967, The (Clara Law, 2000) dp Dion Beebe; Rose Byrne; the story of a Japanese man who comes to Australia to buy his dream car was filmed in Sydney, Lightning Ridge and Tokyo; screened Toronto 2000

By far the best of the Japanese-meets-Australian films, this one was shot by Oscar-winning Dion Beebe. (The goddess is a Citro├źn DS.)

... the elements of the story are spliced together from a variety of sources so the final result is rather like a montage that, seen from a distance as a whole, may carry some meaning, but each individual part is made of something different. Despite the cinematic flourish, it doesn’t quite work and the perfunctory ending is a disappointment. Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile.
