Storyline

In the bustling streets of Cairo, overflowed with people hurrying to their work, life advances in hectic rhythms. Traffic congestion, noise and buses crammed with men and women, this is the usual imagery of a big city on its way to progress. But underneath this cloak of normality, a particular type of crime thrives in the small-scale world of public transportation, so subtle and elusive to the untrained eye, that seems to be nonexistent. Women of all ages, regardless of their attire, are sexually objectified and abused on a daily basis, tolerating silently the perverted needs of male passengers. How could a woman defend herself from such an assault, shield herself from the anguish and the shame of repeated harassment, when a nation's male population remains untouched by this obscenity?

Thought-provoking
8 March 2015 | by (Brussels) – See all my reviews

Three women of different social backgrounds decide to fight back after being the victims of repeated assaults by men in the street or in the bus. This movie manages to address the delicate issue of sexual assaults on women in a very interesting way: each character has a unique standpoint and no moral judgment is imposed in the end. There is a little zest of comedy in the tragedy, some truly powerful and positive moments, and despite some stereotypical characters, the film avoids caricature. The three heroines are credible and endearing. Their relationships with men are complex, and it is hard not to ask yourself: What would I do if I faced the same challenges as they face? A perfect movie to watch on 8 March... International Women's Day.
