Storyline

For Rami, all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds, as long as he keeps to himself. But when his longtime lover leaves him to marry a woman and his best friends drift away, he comes face to face with the harsh realities of life as a gay man in Egypt. Against the backdrop of the choreographed crackdown on gay men and the notorious Queen Boat arrests of 2001, he plunges into a world of loveless friendships and spirals downwards to his ultimate downfall.

Trivia

The ex-Mufti (head of the clergy) of Egypt, Sheikh Nasr Fareed Wasel, issued a fatwa (a religious decree) in June 2008 asking to burn the movie, stating that "these films are the gateway to debauchery, to committing that forbidden by Allah and propagate deviant social behaviors." 'All My Life' is the first film to unapologetically tackle homosexual subjects in the Egyptian cinema. See more »

A must see movie
13 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although it is a low budget and first -time actors movie but it presents a topic never discussed in the Middle East openly and with courage as this movie did. For the first time, we see an Egyptian movie, with Arab actors that addressed homosexuality and human rights issues in the Arab World. it shows how difficult it is socially, religiously and even security wise to be a gay person in an Arab country. we hope to see more movies, with better quality of course, in the future that would shed more light on such topics. But for Toul Omry, it is the first serious attempt to uncover taboos in a region plagued with extremism. brave work, but needs more professional guidance int he future.
