365 Dni (365 Days)

Laura is kidnapped on her 29th birthday by a criminal who saw her in a vision after being shot. The criminal’s plan is to hold Laura captive for one year and wait for her to fall in love with him. And in the meantime, force himself on her at every turn. Essentially, this is a Beauty and the Beast situation, if Beast was a sex offender.

msemail_days__5_jpg-JS575478900The worst part is this guy clearly believes Laura will love him despite his abuse, or possibly because of it. Has he been watching too much Disney, too much porn, or both?

The second worst part is the English, the low quality of which seems like it’s dubbed, but it’s not. This is a Polish film that uses three languages, Polish for Laura, Italian for the criminal, and “English” for when they talk to each other. I’m almost positive you will recognize many of the phrases in this film, such as:

“Who the fuck you are?”

Or, “I’m not a bag of potatoes.”

Or, “If you feel like running you should wear a different pair of shoes.”

Or, “Why are you looking at it? Do you want to touch it?”

And that’s just a small sample of the prose that’s on offer. Naturally, the “it” in that last one is the rapist’s penis. And naturally, we shut off this movie at that point, much later than we should have. Here’s hoping I can save you from making a similar mistake.

    Hahaha. Thank you! And thank you for including Disney and porn in the same sentence, since they are not mutually exclusive, in my opinion, lol

    Oh, is that what this is about? It’s been all over Twitter, but with not enough info for me to discern what the brouhaha was about. Now I get it. Pass.

    This movie’s tag line should be “And you thought Fifty Shades was bad… really bad… wait till you see this”
    or
    “A piece of advice: Just skip to the good parts (trademark, Mr. Skin).”

    While I agree that the movie is some first rate bullshit, you’re wrong about the worst part. The WORST part is that she was going to fall for it. I realize we didn’t finish it, but after the shower scene I just knew. I knew that this courtship of kidnap and rape would end in “love” and I 100000% had zero time for that. Not only are they eroticizing crimes against women, they’re insinuating that a shopping trip makes it all better.

    Netflix is REALLY capitalizing on the “hot dominating rich stalker” fantasy. First fifty shades, then “you”, and now this. That shit sells like hotcakes apparently. The dialogue in the trailer cracked me up it was so bad, but people are gonna watch regardless purely for the steamy scenes. So why would they put real effort into it? Lol can’t knock the hustle tho

    I think this is the worst movie I have ever seen. We watched it because it was Polish. Polish cinema has a good reputation. What a mistake to make. We watched it to the end hoping it would have some redeeming features. Not one. How can a woman on this day and age be flattered by abuse, indignity, subject herself to the reliving of childish fairytale fantasies which demean her in every way.
    And, as you so rightly point out, the language is awful, the plotting execrable and the characterisation…. what characterisation. I have yet to find a person who thinks this is good. Yet it is no one on Netflix.
