Ahhh Netflix. Our beloved partner who has stuck by our side throughout these strange and uncertain times. They just knew we needed to fill a void, so they gave us – 365 Dni (365 Days). Not exactly what you’d consider a romantic movie (cue description: ‘A woman falls victim to a dominant mafia boss, who imprisons her and gives her one year to fall in love with him’ – ermm what?!), but this didn’t stop it becoming a viral internet sensation when it arrived to Netflix worldwide on June 7.
Based on an erotic novel by Blanka Lipinska, the film tells the tale of a Polish girl named Laura (Anna Maria Sieklucka) who gets kidnapped on her birthday by Sicilian mobster Massimo (Michele Morrone) and has a year to fall in love with him. An undoubtedly problematic plot-line with a growing backlash of critics, but still… it had something which made fans feel hella sexy. If you’ve seen the film, you know what we’re talking about. If you haven’t, well.. it leaves Christian Grey behind in a seemingly lukewarm PG pool. Hence Morrone quickly growing to 8 million followers on Instagram quick time!
Every scene in 365 Days you need to know about
365 days is steamy and weirdly entertaining in its own way. With scenes leaving us all questioning…’wait , but that looks SO real. How are they acting!?’, we’ve compiled a few of the best scenes here to give you a vibe of what (or who) goes down. Literally.
11.03: The mile high club. A controversial film intro that’s for sure.
44.09: One of the tamer scenes compared to the rest of the movie. A somewhat modest shower scene which turns hot and heated.
50.00: Have you ever licked an ice cream like this before?
52.00: BDSM that makes Fifty Shades of Grey look innocent. Laura goes to Massimo’s room (reason unknown) insults him and in response he ties her up and puts on a BJ show. Yep, that’s a thing…apparently.
1.07: The ICONIC boat scene. A five-minute-long rollercoaster of emotions as the pair finally hook up after Massimo saves Laura’s life. By far one of the most memorable clips from the film with lot’s of flipping and thrusting.
1.32: Who doesn’t love makeup sex in front of a full-length window with a city view?! Also featuring a very questionable blonde wig.
The film ends on a major cliffhanger, as Laura disappears whilst driving through a tunnel, presumably kidnapped by a member of the rival Mafia. Love it or hate it, you just know there’s a sequel cuming soon.

If you wanna feel at your most confident, why not treat yourself (and your camera roll) to a new lingerie set?
PS. Whatever you get up to over the next 365 days, a few extra condoms might just come in handy.
