The seemingly effortless direction of Luigi Zampa helps smooth over the rough spots of Signori in Carroza. Aldo Fabrizi stars as a Pullman porter working the Rome-Paris-Rome route. Anticipating The Captain's Paradise by a full year, Vincenzo Nardi (Fabrizi) has a wife and family in Rome and a mistress in Paris, and is able to devote ample attention to both. His "perfect" set-up is spoiled when his snoopy brother-in-law decides to follow Nardi to Paris. Things look bleak for Our Hero until his understanding wife untangles the mess. A few scattered moments of pathos never lessen the overall comic impact of Signori in Carroza.
