A fantastic Scottish film!
19 October 2010 | by stuartamcintyreSee all my reviews

Running in Traffic is a very gripping, thought provoking story of two lives that run in parallel with each other. It explores the idea of connectivity and these two people seem to have a connection, however they do not come into contact with each other.

The story can be quite depressing at times because it explores the harsh realities of life. It is true in the way that it shows life is not easy. In some ways it could be said to be exaggerated because of its harshness but that's what film does - it often exaggerates real life to help convey a point. The point that comes across, well what I took from it anyway, is that life is hard and at times you may feel desperate but there is always something good ahead that comes to you when you need it most.

The superbly convincing acting is well worth a mention as I feel it is a vital factor in selling the story to the audience. When you are watching it you feel that the characters are very believable. From a film-making point of view I found that I had to watch it a few times before I could concentrate on the film-making aspect. The first few times, the story just grabbed me and I couldn't take a moment to think of anything else other than what was happening.

Overall Running In Traffic seemed to strike a chord with me. It is without a doubt one of the best films I have watched. In my personal opinion it is the best film to come of Scotland in a long time if not ever. It is just fantastic to watch a hard hitting drama that truly has a heart.
