The story unfolds as a comedy of misunderstanding. , in which the viewer can observe two levels of development of action, without knowledge of each other, with inevitable fun until the plot twist of explanation for all. Let’s come to the plot. Of the state administration in the northern city. News of the arrival of an officer exposes fear of the mayor and public-spirit, mismanagement and addicted to even robbery inside the hospital, for contempt of punishment and breach of correspondence.
In an effort to provide an ethical and honest image of his conduct, he sets up a system of security and support, including financial ones, for a young man staying at a town’s starred hotel, whom he believes is a suspected overseer. Which the mayor will also give his daughter’s hand. Poor, partly out of disorientation and partly out of opportunism, accepts alleged loans that the authorities give him with the intention of obtaining his altruism as well as blackmailing him. Meanwhile, the false officer not only collects a lot of money, but also conquers the mayor’s daughter and always enters the grace of the mayor’s greedy and lustful wife.
The young man’s timely release overwhelms the corrupt ruling class, realizing that he cannot grab more, disappears in time, thus betraying the traitors. The final turn, the arrival of the real Inspector General who will deliver the final blow to the gang of dishonest”. In Abate’s rewrite, Gogol’s satirical gaze is expressed in even more parody vision, where caricature characters with a distinctive Northern accent, a colorful Roman Let’s circle around this false inspector with speech.
