Italian director Alessandro Blasetti originated the type of episodic entertainment found in Io Amo, Tu Ami almost a decade before this interesting film was put together, and the genre remained popular in Italy for another decade into the future. Using talent from around the globe, Blasetti looks at the nature of love from childhood through old age, from Italy to Russia and stops in-between, and from the sentimental to the erotic. Among the talent seen or heard in the film are Don Jada's Japanese Revue, Las Hermanas Benitez, the Moiseev Ballet, Edith Piaf, and even the Red Army Chorus. Somewhat a mixed salad, the juxtaposition of certain sequences may be a little jarring to some viewers.
