The Goddess of 1967

Synopsis: "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.

The rich guy's coming.

With 35,000! Cash!

Didn't we say 40,000?

Yeah, but this is cash!

It's tax-free!


When the man comes, you tell him:

"Bad luck, mate.

The price's gone up this week.

It's now 40,000."

Come on, baby!

We're gonna make some cash!

Here we go!

Daddy, Daddy!

Yeah! Come on, baby!

We got it!



-Is Mr. Hughes here, please?

-Who is it?

l came from Japan. Tokyo.

Mr. Hughes said,

"Meet me at the airport", but....

-Hi. Nice to meet....

-Come in.

Did you see the blood?

Sure. Sure.

And the brains on the ceiling?

Come here.

The police said he blew

her head off with a shotgun...

and then put it into his own head,

right between the eyes.

Would you like to join us?

-No. No, thanks.


l was in my room.

They had a fight about some money

they were gonna get from a Japanese.

I'm sorry.

-You sure you don't want to eat?

-No. No, thanks.

-Can l have a look? Please?

-The bodies?

No. The car, please.

Please switch on the light.

l cannot see.

Sorry, l don't know where it is.

Never have to use it.


This is true beauty.

Please, do you have the key?

l want to look inside, you know?

Can l... get in?


-Do you want a test drive?

-Yeah. No, no.

l think it 's too risky,

you know, with a Goddess.

Thank you very much.

It's beautiful.

This is not driving.

This is flying.

You're only hitting 40, right?

Yeah, yeah!

What 's wrong?

I'm flying already.

You idiot!

l hate violence.


Sure, sure.

They weren't real bullets,

you know. Just blanks.

Greg insisted l should carry one.

You know, my cousin?

Mr. Hughes.

0h, yeah?

He loved guns.

l know.

A little higher. Lower.

No, no.


Yeah, yeah.

Right, right. Right, right.

-Greg didn't really own this car.



Is it yours?

-You really wanna buy it?

-Yeah. Sure, sure.

Now, you remember what l told you?

Your mom and dad are dead now.

They'll never be with you anymore.

-Just like Jenny's....

-Rabbit, and Granny's cat. Right.

You're all alone.

You're all by yourself.

You must never trust anyone.



Good girl.

And what 's the number for help?


listen. You go inside

and stay there...

and I'll call the police to come

and pick you up. Can you do that?

Yes, l can.

So you won't be with me anymore?


-Like Mom and Dad?


Are you gonna die too?

Would you like to call the owner?

-He hasn't got a phone.


What 's the name of this place?

It's not on the map.

So how we get there?

-You mean Highway 56?


Let 's look for Highway 13

and keep going west.

Shall we drive overnight?

l wanna buy it tomorrow...

and come back

here tomorrow night...

so l can take the

Goddess to the beach.

It's a five-day trip...

not including return.

Don't move!

What are you doing here?

l knew it! You're going to....

Don't move!

You're going to rob me and kill me,

dump my body somewhere! l knew it!

And you have killed Mr. Hughes?

You're a psychopath.

A serial killer!

Hey, you understand?

You are not blind!

You can see!

I'm just hungry, all right?!

lf you feel so insecure...

then keep it.

You're serious?

What 's your name?

Yoshiyashu Yanagiya.


Yoshiyashu Yanagiya.

-And yours?
