Storyline

Film version of Luigi Pirandello's stage play Enrico IV that downplays Pirandello's patented absurdism in favor of a comparatively straightforward narrative. The title character is not the 11th-century German king of the same name, but a looney modern-day nobleman who only thinks that he's Henry IV.
