The Cardiff club scene in the 90's: five best friends deal with their relationships and their personal demons during a weekend. Jip calls himself a sexual paranoid, afraid he's impotent. Lulu, Jip's mate, doesn't find much to fancy in men. Nina hates her job at a fast food joint, and her man, Koop, who dreams of being a great hip-hop d.j., is prone to fits of un-provoked jealousy. The fifth is Moff, whose family is down on his behavior. Starting Friday afternoon, with preparations for clubbing, we follow the five from Ecstacy-induced fun through a booze-laden come-down early Saturday morning followed by the weekend's aftermath. It's breakthrough time for at least three of them. Written by
'Pablo Hassan', the owner of Asylum (the nightclub they visit) is played by well known international DJ Carl Cox. See more »

Best Movie to watch before you go out to party with friends
I'm giving this a 10 because I seriously love this movie. I've seen far better, more profound plots, better acting etc. - but then again, I forgot about most of them. Yet Human Traffic is one of those movies that stuck with me. The movie is just pure fun and a look at what life is like for a rather sizable amount of young adults struggling with how to deal with a life dictated by a shitty job, which is, let's face it, the harsh reality for most people on the planet. The Answer is simple: go out on the weekends, go nuts, party and forget for the moment. Drugs play a prominent role in this one as well of course, but I wonder why people that didn't like the film get all cranky about it. It wasn't the main plot point unlike in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, which is hailed as a cult classic. Last time I came around to watch it I saw it completely sober (not even a sip of beer) together with a friend and I thoroughly enjoyed it and was somewhat envious of the fun the actors were successfully conveying. So no worries, you need not be high or drunk to enjoy this movie, as some suggest in the discussions. And afterwords I wanted to go out and dance and party so badly. It had a really energizing effect on me. Yet sadly, it was a Sunday...
All in all, it's one of those movie's that people easily put down, cause it doesn't seem like much. But perhaps you're like me and it sticks with you, in a good way. It's worth a try. Oh and if you get the chance to watch this on a Friday, sitting together with friends before you got out, getting drunk, so you don't need to pay so much in the club(s), PLEASE DO. It'll most DEFINITELY get you in the right mood ;)
