During Paris Fashion Week, models, designers and industry hot shots gather to work, mingle, argue and try to seduce one another. American television personality Kitty (Kim Basinger) unsuccessfully vies to keep up with the high-fashion types. Journalists Anne (Julia Roberts) and Joe (Tim Robbins) skip out on most of the festivities in favor of a hotel room tryst. And fading icons Sergei (Marcello Mastroianni) and Isabella (Sophia Loren) hope to rekindle a romance from decades ago.
When handsome, successful Domenico (Marcello Mastroianni) first meets the sexy young waif Filomena (Sophia Loren) in Naples during World War II, he is instantly smitten. Flash forward to the postwar years, and the two meet again, sparking a passionate affair that spans two decades. But when Filomena -- who has now become Domenico's kept woman and has secretly borne his children -- learns that her lover is planning to wed another, she stops at nothing to hook him into marrying her instead.
When American lawyer Michael Hamilton (Clark Gable) hears that his estranged younger brother and sister-in-law have died in a car accident, he flies to Naples, Italy, to settle their estate. Upon arriving, the xenophobic Hamilton meets his impish nephew, Nando (Marietto), for the first time, and decides he will bring the boy back with him to the United States. But when Nando's gorgeous aunt, Lucia Curcio (Sophia Loren), protests, a lengthy and heated custody battle ensues.
