"Goddess" stands for French "Déesse", the nickname of Citroën DS, the name of a famous car designed in the fifties. A young and well-situated Japanese man is dreaming of such a car, and one fine day he finds an offering on the net. He calls the seller (a man living in Australia), they agree upon the price and so he travels to Australia in order to buy the car. But when he reaches his destination, there's chaos all around: The seller as well as his wife lay dead in their house and a 17 year old girl lets him in and offers him something to eat. He walks out with horror but then comes back because he forgot to ask about the car... The girl lets him see the car, and then they start a 5 day trip through the outback, and, at the same time, a trip back in time into the early youth of the girl and into her family's chronicle.

How did Clara Law think of this film --- and write the script?
This movie has to take top marks for imagination. It begins with an obsessed Japanese man, who meets a blind 38 year-old woman in Australia. They travel together. There are flashbacks.
Try not watching this film: I don't think you will be able to. The images, the settings, the strange way it is told. See what happens when women make movies! See a female director credit and always go, you will never be disappointed.
Clara Bow was born in China (Macao) and has two different Chinese names, according to IMDb. She first made films in China, in Chinese. She must be quite a character: try finding out anything much about her. She's pretty elusive.
Rose Byrne --- a-a-a-ah! Rose is gorgeous, her depiction of the blind woman is superb. Her Japanese leading man is a knock-out, too.
This film is a great package: definitely take it in.
