678 reveals a raw side of Egypt that the world has barely seen. The film unfolds the poignant story of three women and their search for justice from the daily plight of sexual harassment in Egypt. When one of the women resorts to stabbing harassers in the groin, she becomes a phantasmal hero that causes a nationwide stir.

Whatever missteps it makes along the way can be written off as the mistakes of a filmmaker so driven by his material that he couldn't be bothered to check himself for fear of losing that fire and momentum.
Writer/director Mohamed Diab leaves no room for ambiguity in his depiction of modern Cairo. As deconstructed in his flawed but fiery drama Cairo 678, it is a truly awful place for women to live.
A full-fledged two hander, 678 at times verges on turning into a boo-hiss melodrama, but it's the rare film that will elicit cheers within the usually sedate MoMA.
