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.Written by
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 »
Have you seen those online videos about police brutality in Egypt?
The one who posted them was wrong. They damage the image of Egypt.
Damage the image of Egypt? How long do you want people to suffer and be silent? Egypt is not the government. Being against the government's position will save the image of Egypt.

The beauty of this film is not in the quality of acting or production, but rather the plot and issues it raises. Having seen many independent gay-themed films this is the first to my knowledge that brings in an unabashed and unashamed manner gay issues facing the Middleeast (in particular Cairo, Egypt) neatly packaged in a simple yet complex and entertaining plot spoken in the country's native Arabic tongue. The movie also is not only centered around the protagonist, Rami. Rather it introduces several other characters that revolve around him and play an equally central role with each character bringing to light mainly tribulations but also some joys of gay life in Cairo. Not too long into the film and it becomes pretty clear that that this is an amateur production probably done on less than a shoe string budget which is a testament to the courage of the producer and actors in completing this and providing a thoroughly entertaining and expressive film.
All in all. . . two thumbs up!
