This Is How They Filmed The Iconic Toilet Scene In 'Trainspotting'

This Is How They Filmed The Iconic Toilet Scene In 'Trainspotting'

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of one of British cinema's most iconic movies, Trainspotting. To celebrate, we thought we'd take a look at just how they managed to pull off one of the film's most famous scenes.

In Danny Boyle's 1996 cult classic, the heroin addict protagonist Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor), enters a bar to use "the worst toilet in Scotland".

What follows is possibly the greatest bathroom scene in film history. It shows, quite vividly, the lengths to which an addict will go to satisfy their cravings.

After relieving himself, Renton realises that his suppositories are somewhere in the disgusting diarrhea. His desperation completely outweighs his disgust, so a search begins for the drugs.

Despite the toilet looking absolutely rank, the faeces in the scene were actually made from chocolate and apparently smelled quite pleasant.

Last year, the film's cinematographer, Brian Tufano, explained how they managed to pull off the scene. It was simpler than you'd imagine.
