Discussion with Matteo Bini and Millicent Marcus follows

When Paolo, a well-known TV host in Rome, returns to his hometown near Bergamo to visit his ailing father (an actor who plays the enigmatic character Harlequin, or Arlecchino, in the local theater troupe), he manages to rekindle his own love for the theater and the pleasant rituals of his past. As a contemporary fable, Io, Arlecchino evokes the spirit of a lively and innocent Commedia dell’ Arte performance — in contrast with the pretentious television shows Paolo knows from his current career. (Giorgio Pasotti and Matteo Bini, 2014, DCP, subtitles, 90 minutes)
