In 1922 the first Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS Mary was made. The movie is about a family who has to sail from England to America and find their missing daughter in this time of war. At the end of the war, the brother of the family also became a missing person, but this time he is in prison.
This book starts of as a story of the family who decided to sail to America in order to find their daughter. It gets more complicated as it went on because they had to meet with many people and to get information about the girl. There are lots of twists and turns the whole way and it is really a nice little movie. The girl was played by Polly Williams, who plays Isla Fisher in the movie.
For the movie, the whole Serie crew was not used to acting and they did not know how to act. But it is definitely good for the fans to see how well they handled their parts. Anne Hathaway did a good job as the mother, Diana Dors plays the sister and no one could act better than Gene Wilder.
There is an interesting character in the movie, none other than John F. Kennedy, who was the commander of the American side during the war. At the end of the movie, Kennedy quits the office and even calls all the men who were loyal to him.
There is one scene that people might have forgotten but was included in the DVD of the Serie. Kennedy and his son have a heated conversation and this caused Kennedy to lose control and scream "Duuude!" That should be noted, even though not included in the movie.
Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS, is definitely a movie worth seeing. It is nice to see the big name stars finally get some recognition. At the same time it also shows the small-time actors being able to do well and at the same time stay in the scene.
This movie was not really well received by everyone, but to those who really loved it, it is probably the best Serie. To others, it may be a pleasant movie but for some it is just a typical story of family reunions that will never happen.
Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS is a fun movie that will keep you entertained for a while. If you do not like to see this genre of movies, try this out.
