Which seems her death

A movie review:
"Its too bad that we did not know more about his Mom, which seems her death had affected him terribly"
Is this sentence correct?
I would be more inclined to say:

"Its too bad that we did not know more about his Mom, which her death seemed to have affected him terribly"

Am I wrong?

    It makes sense to use whose rather than which in that sentence: It's too bad that we did not know more about his mom, whose death had affected him terribly.

    No. It is incorrect. I suspect a typing error.

    "Its too bad that we did not know more about his Mom, which her death seemed to have affected him terribly"

    That is also wrong.

    My suggestion

    "Its too bad that we did not know more about his Mom, whose death seemed to have affected him terribly"

    True that! Thank you!

    Can I still know which sentence is better? In my OP.

    You're welcome.

    I'm sorry, but neither the original sentence nor your sentence are good. The grammar simply doesn't make sense. The use of which in both versions really messes things up.

    Cross-posted.
