Jack Lemmon stars as crabby American World War II veteran Bob Traven, who travels to Italy on a business trip and reunites with wartime buddy Antonio, whose freewheeling Neapolitan lifestyle goes against all of Traven’s uptight sensibilities.

It is not the best Scola's film. In that time, Italian comedy was not too brilliant (late 80'). Here the screenplay is totally annoying because it is not original. The main actors are without motivation and there is no visual interest, the use of light is very much the standard for that period. It seems to be a film made only for commercial motives. The only beautiful thing is the real landscape view of Naples.
