Movie Info

A Full-Up Train 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 (whom he can't marry because women aren't allowed in the dorm) knock him down to the bottom rung of the corporate ladder. Like Pu-San and A Billionaire, A Full-Up Train 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." ~ Tom Vick, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Manin densha (A Full-Up Train)(The Crowded Streetcar)(The Crowded Train)

½

A nice satire about modern Japanese "Salary-men." Comical story, quick tempo, and stylish images are worth to watch, but it's a little bit too pessimistic for me.

½

Another movie that make you scratch your head. Basically a satire on corporate culture in the vein of Il Posto. Things get stranger when the main character learns that his mother is going insane, by the end you have no idea who's the insane person, whether it's mom or dad, or the son.
