Critic Reviews for 678

All Critics (5) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (1)

  • 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.

    June 3, 2011 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    March 27, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • it's a film defined by its challenging issues and elegant storytelling.

    March 24, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    Although Diab seems to have good intentions with an important subject, his lack of subtlety and heavy-handed direction sadly stand in his way, and so the result is a ridiculous and artificial melodrama that has no focus and is full of cheap contrivances and soap-opera dialogue.
