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.

Antagony & Ecstasy

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.

Audience Reviews for 678

Although Diab seems to have good intentions with an important subject, his lack of subtlety and heavy-handed direction are what stands in his way. The result is a ridiculous, artificial melodrama that has no focus and is filled with cheap contrivances and soap-opera dialogue.
