The story in the novel actually takes place from the early to late 80s (nowadays Edinburgh has improved as a city and isn't as rough as it is in the book) so the film has a certain gloomy period feel (the 80s were a bad time for the North of England and Scotland, since Thatcher eliminated a lot of British heavy industry which caused mass unemployment), most of the characters live in those hideous blocks of flats, songs from the 80s highlight the passages of time and you might also notice that most of the cars in the background are from the 80s as well, there aren't too many new cars in this film.
