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 »

An important film
23 March 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is not a "good" film and is definitely not a "feel-good" film either. The acting is often below average (sometimes to hilarious effects) and it is clear that it was made on a minute budget. It is however a incredibly brave and courageous film. The subject matter and its geographical/social context make it so. The poor quality of the production becomes itself a clear indication of the oppression and the violence experienced by some of the characters. It is clear that the film attempts to cover too many issues, however it is difficult to deny that in the mixture of soap and drama sprinkled with a bit of sex, all the issues are fascinating and demands keen attention.
