The erotic film '365 days', which was an audience success in Netflix in 2020, it will win not just one, but two sequences. Despite the negative criticism and the fact of having won the Golden Raspberry for “Pior Roteiro”, the streaming platform is recording parts 2 and 3 of the plot at the same time, according to the website Deadline.
The stars of the first feature, Michele Morrone (Don Massimo Torricelli) and Anna-Maria Sieklucka (Laura Biel), will return for the sequels. Magdalena Lamparska (Olga) will also return, while model and actor Simone Susinna will be Nacho, the main novelty of the cast. Barbara Białowąs and Tomasz Mandes return to the positions of directors.
In the plot of '365 days', Massimo (Morrone) is a great mobster who kidnaps Laura (Sieklucka) and gives her 12 months to fall in love with him. The erotic story also addresses some of the protagonist's family problems and his feelings about the arrival of a new man in her life.
The sequences will be based on the trilogy of books that gave rise to the story, written by Blanka Lipinska. The author even admits that she doesn't care that the franchise is often called "the Polish 'Fifty Shades of Gray'", since there was direct inspiration in the works of EL James. As in the original film, she will also help to write the script for the sequels.

The production, of course, was very successful due to the intense sex scenes, but it was also criticized for romanticizing the sex abuse, kidnapping and even Stockholm syndrome. At the time of launch, 95 signatures were registered in an online petition requesting the removal of the Polish feature from the Netflix catalog.
On the other hand, the film's popularity was absurd. '365 days' (from Polish, '365 dni') was the fourth most searched film in the Google globally in 2020, according to streaming, and remained the year in the Top 10 most watched content of the service in about 90 countries.
And a curious fact is that '365 days' was an acquisition of Netflix, while the two new films are original productions made by the streaming platform itself. Currently being filmed in Poland and Italy, there is still no release date for the next two sequences. Check out the trailer for the first film below:
