T2 Trainspotting

Twenty years after Mark Renton’s (Ewan McGregor) betrayal, he returns home to Edinburgh to face his old friends; at the same time, the incorrigible Begbie (Robert Carlyle) escapes from prison… This belated sequel to Trainspotting (1996) reunited the cast and crew and is certainly a nostalgia piece for everybody involved, audiences included. Just like the original, the editing is swift, the camera never stops moving and the story is episodic. But this time the heroin-fueled fantasies have been largely replaced with flashbacks and touchingly relevant, sometimes funny, ruminations on growing older. Uneven, but still stylish and dignified.
