The Yacoubian Building (Omaret yakobean)(2006)

The worse Egyptian movie I've ever seen. OK granted the only Egyptian movie I've ever seen, so technically it is also the best, but it is really quite bad.
There isn't much to say about a film where gay men turn homosexuals because they were abused as children and the only option in life for a young beauty is to marry a 60-something failure living in the shadow of his dead father, himself a greedy official. Thoroughly bad, to be avoided at all cost, you'll get more insight about modern Egypt in a documentary about king Tut.
