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.

Did You Know?


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 »


Rami: So what did you mean when you said it was your first time?
Atef: It is the first time I let someone enter me.
Rami: Why me?
Atef: Because you were already inside me. Because I love you.

I'm not gay,but this NC-17 Banned Egyptian Gay Movie Is A Masterpiece.
25 July 2015 | by IsaacfromUSASee all my reviews

The film's plot revolves around the life of Rami, a 26-year-old gay man, his life in Cairo, and his experiences with his friends and neighbors. All My life has been regarded as the most explicit Arabian Gay Movie and has been banned in All Arabian Countries. Gay Themed Movies Are Banned In Every Arabian Country.In Arabian countries,gay Arabs secretly meet in Steam and Sauna Baths.Thanks To Internet Social Sites,gays now can make numerous friends across the internet.

In All my life,you can see male frontal nudity,and Arabian men making love to other men. Gays will witness the agony and guilt Arab gays face. You will feel with gays even if you are straight after watching this interesting movie.

By the way the movie trailer was previously banned on youtube,but allowed on my space.

This movie is a masterpiece and a must see NC-17 movie for both gays and straight men.
