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 »

Important Film
13 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent film, dealing with the issue of homosexuality in Egypt. It touches on this issue from multiple angles (social, religious, etc...) revealing just how complicated this issue is. It shows married men dealing with this issue (on the down-low), it shows how some gay men are comfortable with their homosexuality, it shows how some foreigners view Arabs as "exotic", it deals with some of the misconceptions about gays, etc... It gives an insight into the level of desperation and oppression of gays. All this being said, there are plenty of hilarious moments in the film. Sure, the film is low-budget but it's definitely an important contribution and a courageous attempt at dealing with this issue. I understand that this film came about from grass-roots efforts by Arabs in the US and that the money for the film was raised through donations.
