War-time drama of survival, and forbidden and lost love
Most of the small number of viewers who have commented on this film to date, seem to find it boring or without much substance. But I think "See Wife," has much more than meets the eye especially than meets the eye of modern movie-goers who are so used to being bombarded with action after action scenes along with lots of CGI. This is a story first, about civilian victims of war; then about survivors at sea and on an uninhabited island; then about return to life after World War II. But the plot develops around four survivors and includes drama, distrust, prejudice and mystery.
Some reviewers like to see parts of other films in this one, but there is something that sets "Sea Wife" apart from "Life Boat" and others. That is in the forbidden and lost love. And, part of the mystery revolves around another love that is held and given for something higher. The script is very good, the scenes are engaging and the acting is very good. A very good film that movie fans who look for big doses of quality acting will appreciate. It doesn't have a usual Hollywood ending, but one that satisfies the mystery and drama of the story.
