The Goddess Of 1967 * Clara Law * 2000

I remember that this film played in our local filmhouse and that I wanted to see it, but apparently not with a high enough priority to actually go and see it. After that I have had the film in my hands a few times, but not until a few days ago that I actually rented it.

“The Goddess of 1967” is a car, a Citroën DS (French: “Déesee” of Goddess). A young and rich Japanese (“JM” Japanese man?) has wanted such a car since he saw it in a film he loves. He finds one with help of the internet and travels to Australia to pick it up. Arriving he finds out that the man who sells it, shot himself and he takes the redhaired and blind girl “BG” (‘blind girl’?) for a drive accross Australia. A very nice and original drama / roadmovie follows. The flashback do not always make things clearer, but do make you learn the stories behind the main characters. Very nice.

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
