Given the fact that America was still technically at war with Italy in mid-1943, it is surprisingly that Tu M'Ami-to T'Amo would find its way into American movie theatres. Released stateside as Her First Love, the film serves as a showcase for the luminescent Alida Valli. She plays a high-school student who falls in love with a much-older doctor (Amedeo Nazzari). Returning her affections, the doctor writes up several medical "excuses" for the girl, allowing her to skip school and spend her time with him. Once they're married, however, the bloom is off the rose so far as romance is concerned. Filmed several years before its American release, Tu M'Ami-To T'Amo was distributed in the U.S. via a South American film firm.
