Netflix trilogy depicts obsession, toxic love 


Let’s talk about the craziest erotic love story released on Netflix. It’s tough to spoil a trilogy because there is so much to get through, but it has to be done. “365 Days” is a 2020 Polish erotic thriller adapted from the first novel of a trilogy.

Michele Morrone and Anna-Maria Sieklucka star as the main love interests in Netflix’s “365 Days.” This trilogy is one of the craziest love stories I’ve witnessed, and yes, better than “50 Shades of Grey.”

Overall, I give the trilogy four out of five Lopers. 

The vibes were sexy and the actors were attractive. It’s Valentine’s Day month and I’m always down for a good love story that would probably never happen to me. 

Morrone was followed on social media by every woman that watched the movie premiere on Feb. 7, 2020. The actor became a success when his Instagram went from 4,000 followers to 2.6 million overnight. 

This is the month of love, so what better way to celebrate than to binge the biggest movie to hit Netflix in 2020? Forbes article contributor Travis Bean, said “365 Days” experienced 24 days on Netflix’s daily Top 10 list when it premiered on the platform in April of 2020.

The sex scenes between Anna-Maria Sieklucka, also known as Laura, and costar Michele Morrone left me shocked at how it was only acting.

After watching the installments of this trilogy, especially back-to-back, Massimo and Laura’s love story seemed so true. Although very unlikely, the truth is that there was also a super misogynistic and sexist storyline. Massimo Torricelli, the main character portrayed by Morrone, had crime money that belonged to his family. Because of this power, he did whatever he wanted with Laura… almost. Massimo kidnaps Laura right at the beginning of the movie and the climax of the movie gets cut off, carrying the audience into the next movie. 

Massimo tells Laura that he will be keeping her prisoner for “365 Days” in hopes that it will be enough time for her to fall in love with him. 

Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes called “365 Days” a “cheesy erotic thriller with not a single positive aspect about it.” 

Historically speaking, so many other novels adapted into movies want to do the books justice since they are full of very intimate and passionate sex descriptions. Erotic films tend to have a bad effect on young people because they can lead to violence against women, especially like the situations depicted in “365 Days.” 

This story depicted so much of what an unhappy and unhealthy relationship can look like between a woman and her captor. Most of all, I think it insinuates that sex between a captor and woman is embraced as long as it involves a tall, handsome Silician man with a six-pack a yacht full of crime money.
