Macaroni is a 1985 comedic drama that finds two old friends meeting years after the war. Robert Traven (Jack Lemmon) is an American businessman who travels to Naples, Italy hoping for a bit of relaxation. Antonio Jasiello (Marcello Mastroianni), who Robert hasn't seen or heard from since the end of his tour of duty in World War II, shows up at Robert's hotel. Robert suspects some type of scam and sends Antonio away. After reflection, Robert feels badly that he was so suspicious of his old friend and sets out to mend bridges. Antonio is thrilled when Robert meets up with him and re-introduces Robert to Carmelina (Isa Danieli). Though Carmelina is now happily married, she and Robert remember their fledgling romance that was abruptly ended with the war. Robert learns that though he had forgotten Antonio and Carmelina they had not forgotten him, and the reason he was so memorable soon comes to light.
