The Crowded Streetcar follows a young "salary man" as he struggles to adjust to Japan's hectic postwar economy while his personal life becomes more and more chaotic. After graduating from college among a faceless throng of fellow students, he begins working in a brewery, living in a bland workers' dormitory and toiling away at a monotonous desk job. But soon a succession of complications involving his parents (who are accusing one another of being insane) and his college girlfriend knock begin to complicate his life. Like Pu-San and A Billionaire, The Crowded Streetcar satirizes Japan's postwar economic miracle with merciless, acidic satire, and the three films have come to be known as Kon Ichikawa's "black comedy trilogy".
