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
The 'Making of' feature on the Remixed DVD goes into the difficulties of filming a 4 minute Steadicam tracking shot. This shot never appeared in the final version of the film and led to the first Assistant Director leaving the project. See more »

I can understand the appeal of this film, and being a regular clubber I certainly recognised many of the scenes it it, however the complete lack of plot completely ruined it to me. Essentially this is a collection of sketches on clubbing, and it's only when seeing so many stuck end to end that you realise how ridiculously empty and experience it can be at times.
If you can, get a hold of the "Weekender" video by Flowered Up. It's a music video from the early 90's that summarises both the exhilaration and emptiness of being a clubber, it lasts 12 minutes and is vastly more entertaining than this film.
I'd be extremely suprised if the director/director of Human Traffic has another story to tell.
