Just 6.5 film still

Just 6.5
(Metri Shesh-o Nim)

  •   Saeed Roustaee
  •   Iran

In this fast-paced cat-and-mouse thriller, detective Samad (Payman Maadi, A Separation) takes on a powerful drug kingpin in a fierce battle to stem the rising tide of drug addiction in Iran. Opening with a high-octane roundup of suspects and addicts that culminates in a punishing finale, the film tracks Samad as he tries to bring in top dealer Nasser. But landing him in jail is just the beginning. A box-office hit in its homeland, Just 6.5 pushes the crime genre to extremes, Iranian style.

“More than a thrilling watch. It is a sobering reflection on the inability of the law to stem the tide of drug addiction through round-ups, arrests and executions.”
-Hollywood Reporter
