365 Days (365 DNI) is a 2020 Poland drama by Barbara Bialowas.
Starring Michele Morrone, Anna Maria Sieklucka and Bronislaw Wroclawski.
A British singer named Duffy is asking Netflix CEO Reed Hastings to remove the sexy film 365
Days claiming that it glorifies rape and sex trafficking.
Massimo Torricelli, a young and handsome boss of a
Sicilian Mafia family, has no other option but to takeover after his father has been assassinated. Laura Biel is a sales director in a luxurious hotel. She has a successful career, but her private life lacks passion. She is taking one last shot to save
her relationship. Together with her partner and friends, she takes a trip to Sicily. Laura does not expect that Massimo, the most dangerous man on the island, will get in her way, kidnap her, hold her captive and give her 365 days... to fall in love with
him. "365 dni" is the first Polish erotic film. It is based on the best-selling novel of the same name from author Blanka Lipinksa.
365 Days is an erotic thriller from Poland that has been likened to Fifty Shades of Grey . It is quite sexy for Netflix and has become the services's biggest movie of the summer. The
film is is about a mobster who kidnaps a woman he's been stalking, holding her captive for an entire year so that she'll fall in love with him. Naturally, she eventually does fall for her hunky captor and has a lot of sex with him, in various positions
filmed from many angles.
The films detractors have organised a petition against the film which has been signed by about 54,000 people.
Now Duffy has weighed in against the film citing her own experience with being drugged in a restaurant
and being abducted. She found the premise of 365 Days was just a little too familiar to the singer, so she wrote an open letter calling Netflix irresponsible for airing the film.
Update: Noted by the New Zealand film censor
7th July 2020. See article from rnz.co.nz When it was first launched in New Zealand,
365 Days carried a rating of R16, but that was bumped up after Chief Censor David Shanks got involved. Shanks said:
We felt that age rating was inadequate, we thought that this was more at the 18-plus level. We also wrote to Netflix and
advised that they should warn for sexual violence as well as potentially highly impactful content in this film that viewers should be warned about. Shanks said it was frustrating that the legislation his office operated under was from 1993,
and therefore did not cover streaming services. But there was a bill before parliament which if passed, would change that and allow for Netflix to rate films more in line with New Zealand standards.
Update: A petition to ban 365 Days
16th July 2020. See article from
standard.co.uk A petition to ban the Polish Netflix film has gained about 70,000 signatures.
The Change.org petition's author, fitness influencer Mikayla Zazon, wrote:
Netflix clearly stands on the side of
the abusers by having a movie that glorifies, romanticizes, and condones sexual assault trending on their top 10 recommended movies to watch around the globe.
As a social media public figure and a victim of these crimes, I am
outraged and heartbroken that this movie shows up on teens' 'watch next' recommendation.
By taking down this movie on Netflix, we can protect sexual violence in adolescent women and adult women. And we can prevent boys from
seeing such horrific behaviour as permission to sexual assault and rape women.
