Trainspotting is a 1996 British black comedy/drama film directed by Danny Boyle based on the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh and starring Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller, Kevin McKidd, Robert Carlyle, and Kelly Macdonald.
The Academy Award nominated screenplay, by John Hodge, follows a group of heroin addicts in a late 1980s economically depressed area of Edinburgh and their passage through life. Beyond drug addiction, other themes in the film are exploration of the urban poverty and squalor in “culturally rich” Edinburgh.
The film has been ranked 10th by the British Film Institute (BFI) in its list of Top 100 British films of all time. In 2004 the film was voted the best Scottish film of all time in a general public poll. (c.) wikipedia.org
I believe one should at least once watch this video. One of reasons can be the fact that this movie wakes you up. You run from the norms that are emposed on public through sweet and tasty videos, with beatiful scenes and lifes. Once you see it you will not be the same any more. It does not provoke deep feelings,as for example, Titanic, on the contrary it awakes deeply hided thoughts and life sides.
