The film series is based on the novel trilogy of the same name by Blanka Lipińska.
365 Days or 365 Dni is a Polish erotic thriller film. It was based on the first novel of a trilogy of the same name by Blanka Lipińska. The film has often been compared to the Fifty Shades trilogy because of its depictions of sex.
The sequel to the 2020 film is coming to Netflix and the first trailer just dropped. The follow-up film is called 365 Days: This Day.
The first film follows the story of a young woman (Anna-Maria Sieklucka), a simple sales director, whose life changes when she takes a trip to Sicily. She gets kidnapped by Massimo (Michele Morrone), a mafia member from Warsaw who imprisons her and imposes on her a period of 365 days during which to fall in love with him. It became the most-watched film in many countries at the time of its release but was also criticized for its depiction of sexual violence and the glorification of the mafia.
In the second film, things are about to get steamier and kinkier. In the trailer, we see Laura getting married to Massimo in a ceremony surrounded by loved ones. Massimo seems to get overprotective of Laura as he struggles with his responsibilities to his family and his business. Laura gets acquainted with newcomer, Nacho (Simone Susinna), who seems to capture her attention and is determined to win her heart and trust, at any cost. She goes through a transformation that brings changes in her relationship with Massimo. This film will deal with jealousy, betrayal, and even a possible love triangle.
Sieklucka spoke about her character, saying, "This Day offers a fresh look at Laura's character, she's matured and there are definitely some surprises. This installment goes much deeper and tells us more about the relationship between the lovers. She’s stronger in this sequel." Morrone commented, "I'm beyond excited for fans to find out what is next for Laura and Massimo." Netflix also released some exclusive still shots from the movie that is set to premiere on the streaming platform on April 27.
"This is undoubtedly a story about a woman," Lipińska, who co-wrote the script with Mojca Tirs and Tomasz Mandes, said. "How we can be naive, blind, how much we love, how we learn from our mistakes and how we have an opportunity to correct them." She also added about the second film, "My hope is that the audience will understand and see Laura’s new independence and how her life is impacted by the decisions she makes."
