The Goddess of 1967 Reviews

    A good cast and some beautiful scenery can't help this art house film to really lift off the ground. Tumultuous and confusing at times, the story is nevertheless interesting and some moments are quite magical. Unfortunately the film doesn't convince and will leave you with a feeling of underachievement.

    The kind of eerie, sweetly morbid film that I tend to fall in love with. The atmosphere, the pain, the beauty stayed with me for days after watching it.

    Traveling wildly through forbidden and forgotten landscapes and through different eras, encompassing different scenarios of either graphic or tacit brutality, Clara Law experiments with two endlessly contrasting characters in a futile search of any means that may represent the construction of an eternal oblivion. Like a haunting sample of artistic cinema gathering New Wave tendencies and a couple of remnants of old Czech experimentation, <i>The Goddess of 1967</i> is a surrealistic triumph of Aussie cinema thanks to the vision of an underrated cinema heroin. <i>"I want to buy god"</i> 97/100

    Sometimes disjointed, & not everything works, but this mildly quirky film does manage to keep you watching.

    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.
