After a long separation, Blanche Dubois is joining his sister, Stella, in New Orleans. She lives with her husband, Stanley, worker of Polish origin in the old French quarter. The latter did not appreciate the etiquette of White and seeks to know what was the true past of her sister-in-law.

A legendary film, which announces the eruption of sexual impulses in the world of film hollywood until very soft. The clear dark expressive and pathetic of Kazan isolate the body and feelings in an apartment of an old run-down hotel. Marlon Brando, a sex symbol, virilisé, opposes a superb Vivien Leigh sensual and ethereal sinking inexorably into madness.

This film announces the official birth of the style Actors Studio to the cinema.
