Ingrid Bergman wrote a letter to Roberto Rossellini:

“Dear Mr. Rossellini, I have seen your films Rome, Open City and Paisan and I enjoyed them very much. If you need a Swedish actress who speaks English very well, has not forgotten her German, is barely comprehensible in French and who can only say ‘Ti amo’ in Italian, I am ready to come to Italy to work with you.”

(May 1948 )
