Critic Reviews for The Goddess of 1967
I get the sense that if this film really clicks with you, it is something that you'd really love and hold dear. I, on the other hand, just couldn't get into the film.

Audience Reviews for The Goddess of 1967
A staggering blending of alternative values where orientation is lost even by the ones who aren't blind.Law torches sensitivity by deleting the primal instincts of any such conceptual difference,her body of work is (whatever the case may be) a research of emotional behavior through any series of events.Sexual desire is not restrained to just a physical grasp,it also motivates viewers to empathize,yell,express disappointment over the injustice in both characters' revision of their lives.A Man and a Woman,unidentified as is the case with most of us,wanderers of a worldwide outback.
Clara Law photographs a journey into wilderness, and very carefully, step by step, she brings to light the protagonist's sordid past of sexual abuse. Rose Byrne looks like she was made for this part. She shines throughout the film, and makes this difficult journey, worthwhile. It's not an easy film to watch, but it rewards you, with the wide mystifying shots of the wild landscape, and the charm of the "Goddess". Essentially, it feels like you're looking at two different films, until the two protagonists meet. His story, and her story. Luckily, in the end, the journey is theirs, both.
Its non-linear storytelling, jumping in and out of flashbacks and punctuated with experimental video, drawings and words on the screen, is hip without being confusing and generally pleasant to watch. But in the last analysis the film is rather empty at the core, as the leads' existential problems boil down to childhood traumas, notably the oft-used drama of incest.
