The Goddess of 1967 is a 2000 Australian film directed by Macau-born Australian Clara Law, who wrote the script with her husband (and previous script collaborator) Eddie Ling-Ching Fong. The film is about a rich young Japanese man (Rikiya Kurokawa), who travels to Australia with the intention of buying a Citroen DS car (the goddess of the film's title - nicknamed the Deesse, after its initials in French, deesse being French for "goddess") that he has found for sale on the net. Once there things do not quite go as planned ... and he ends up on a road journey with a blind girl (Rose Byrne).

The film was partly filmed in and around Lightning Ridge in New South Wales, Australia. It won several awards, including Best Actress for Rose Byrne at the 2000 Venice Film Festival and best director at the Chicago Film Festival. The song from the dance scene between BG and JM is Walk-Don't Run (the 1964 version) by The Ventures. The song is not included on the film's soundtrack, which contains the score by Jen Anderson.
