Join Jason, a wannabe DJ, on a drug-fuelled trip through the streets of Dublin as he stumbles from one session to another. Somewhere between the DJs, decks, and drug busts he stumbles across a familiar face from the past, his brother Daniel. Daniel, an educated heroin addict, is living on the streets of Dublin. The brothers haven't seen or spoken to each other in years but over a lost weekend they reconnect and reminisce over raves, tunes and their troubled past. Two brothers living very different lives might have more in common than they think.

Human Traffic with the slightest hint of Trainspotting
18 November 2019 | by rbullen-08369See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film more than I thought I would. I watched it as it was only 95 minutes and didn't want anything too heavy. The acting was spot on and for people that want a decent clubbing movie then this is definitely one although the soundtrack isn't phenomenal. All round good job, though. The relationship between the brothers is realistic and Leah Minto who is as close to a female lead that there is in the film is bloody gorgeous. 7 out of 10, although if I could have given it a 7.5 I would've. Not quite a 4 star movie, just , just short!!
