sorry for the mistakes!
The message was illuminated: "You must watch" 365 Days "you can’t
image how trash is," wrote a person on Facebook. Thanks to this and to
the fact that the news reports that this film is among the most viewed
worldwide on "Netflix", I decided to watch it. Indeed, at the trash
level, it has everything it need.
A couple of "institutional" news first of all, the film is taken from
the first book of a trilogy written by the Polish Blanka Lipińska, who
had the idea during a trip to Sicily and who said she did not
appreciate the "Fifty Shades" although watching the film, we are
dealing with a kind of variant. In an interview, the author also says
that in her books the woman is the woman and the man is the man. Keep
this in mind.
The direction is entrusted to two Polish Barbara Bialowas, Tomasz
Mandes, without much experience (to see IMDB but the film itself is
enough to understand it) and Polish cast, with some Italians, in which
Michele Morrone stands out after several appearances in TV Series and
film, reaches the headlines thanks to this role, like the female
counterpart, the icy Anna Maria Sieklucka. Only because they are
beautiful, certainly not for their skill. Among other things, Morrone
composes and plays some tracks of the soundtrack. However is down in
history because he is handsome.
Having written this, I have to deal with the film and therefore
remember everything I saw. And my eyes and ears hurt. Since I am a good
persons, I want to find a value for "365 Days" and I must say that it
is an excellent spot for Italy for tourism from abroad, especially
Sicily, where most of the history takes place, taken and photographed
in glam and exclusive way.
"365 Days" is also a spot for the return of the Latin macho in great shape, if you are interested.
Latin male at the centre of this erotic and crime story where the
erotic scenes recall the films of the seventies in a censored version,
with cut images and actors that show all the fiction. Yes, of course we
see boobs, muscles and asses repeatedly, because here they often fuck
and make us understand that they also love oral sex, but honestly
nothing so hot. And above all, credible.
The crime side instead is represented in the first instance by Massimo
(Michele Morrone) young boss (ops ... he calls himself more elegantly
gangster) who inherits the family empire after the murder of his father
(Giovanni Parisi, Gerlando Levante in "Gomorra", among many things)
which opposes child trafficking. Massimo more than a mobster looks like
a Fabrizio Corona who reach the success and who appreciates Gianluca
Vacchi. Muscolar, tattooed, always pissed off, with his shirt
unbuttoned, which he loves to put on for unknown business and for
parties and travels where he arrives aboard his private jet or on
However the best is yet to come. Massimo wounded during the murder of
his father has a vision in which a stranger appears and is Laura (Anna
Maria Sieklucka). Among other things, some years after, one day she is
on holiday in Sicily with friends and a boor boyfriend who is the slim
version of Helsinki of "La Casa di Carta". Massimo meets her by chance
and instead of courting her kidnaps her. Yes, he kidnaps her and gives
her 365 days to fall in love with him. Here born the erotic game like
"Fifty Shades" but with him holding the situations and she who instead
of running away, suffers everything and suffers from Stockholm Syndrome
and starts playing too. And they fuck. Everywhere. They do it between
absurd dialogues and a constant heterogeneous and very annoying
soundtrack that we hear, who know why, at the end of each dialogue.
A reality show direction, gives us noteworthy trash abundance, combined
with an interpretation that re-evaluates, many worst movies.
The strange thing, in a historical period like this, is to see a huge
machismo, the woman object that often suffers. Something that almost
sounds like an act of rebellion.
This is a film that can be summarized with the slogan of an old Italian
advertisement that said “Per l’uomo che non deve chiedere
mai” (literally “For the man who must not ask too
much” was the Italian slogan of Denim in 80’s, in English
was "For the man who doesn’t have try too hard").
I also feel close to this phrase. I would never have asked to see this
movie. They suggested it to me and unfortunately the other two chapters
will also arrive.
