Michelle Morrone might be good looking and people might've enjoyed taking in his highly attractive body visually, but even that couldn't stop the film '365 Dni' from facing the wrath of one section of audiences. The Polish-Italian drama that dropped on Netflix last week has been hosed down by viewers for glorifying Stockholm Syndrome and rape.

Anna-Maria Sieklucka plays Laura, the fiery executive who gets kidnapped for a whole year by mafia boss Massimo played by Morrone in the film. Massimo wanted her to fall in love with him and a number of highly detailed steamy sex scenes, which also include BDSM and many gifts later she does fall for him, inexplicably. However, all the sex in the world couldn't stop viewers from noting that the film lacked a plot and a lot of them took to Twitter to weigh in. "Y'all need to stop trying to find the plot, there isn't one," wrote a viewer while another wrote, "This was porn... like what even was the plot???"

A number of viewers also pointed out that all the film did was promote Stockholm Syndrome, sexual assault and rape. "That 365 days movie is about a man raping a woman until she develops Stockholm syndrome," wrote a viewer. "365 days was disgusting and glorified Stockholm syndrome and abuse. The sex scenes weren't that good and the spit from the boat scene made me wanna vomit. Thanks for coming to my ted talk," wrote another. 

There was also someone who came to the film's rescue noting that it's the same as the Emma Watson starter 'Beauty and the Beast'. The comment read, "Y’all talking trash about 365 days glamorizing Stockholm syndrome when it’s literally the same as BEAUTY AND THE BEAST that y’all all loved to watch as kids." The film ended on a cliffhanger kind of setting.

Laura was seen shopping for a wedding gown and was heading back to Massimo's villa. The latter's assistant, who is with Laura at this point but in a different car, is alerted about a probable attack on Laura by hitmen. News reaches Massimo and his attempts to alert Laura turns out to be unsuccessful as her phone loses signal while she drives into a tunnel.

The last scenes see Massimo sinking to the floor, bawling while a series of police cars surround the entrance of the tunnel. No confirmations about her death is a part of the film and this could mean that there could be a sequel. It will be interesting to see if the makers come out with it amid all the hate.

'365 Dni' is currently streaming on Netflix.
