Movie Info

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.

it's a film defined by its challenging issues and elegant storytelling.

The film devolves into a rousing, cheer-inducing finale that threatens to efface all the carefully considered complexities Diab had taken such pains to articulate.

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.
