Netflix is ​​facing a growing reaction to its film release 365 days after viewers suggested it “perpetuates and promotes the culture of rape.”

Presented as the next 50 shades of gray, the Polish film 365 DNI, also known as 365 days, tells the story of Laura Biel (Anna-Maria Sieklucka) who is kidnapped and imprisoned on vacation in Sicily by the boss of the mafia Massimo Torricelli (Michele Morrone).

On Thursday, singer Duffy wrote a letter to Reed Hastings, the CEO of Netflix, calling on the service to use its influence “more responsibly.” And online viewers seem to agree with many suggesting that he “glorifies kidnapping and sex trafficking”.

Grammy-winning singer Duffy, 35, who recently exposed her own experience with rape, drugs and kidnapping, tells Hastings why she thinks the glamor of kidnapping in 365 days is dangerous.

She says the film treats “the serious crime of abduction and sex trafficking” as “erotic entertainment”.

Journalist Megan McGibney agreed, saying it was “disturbing that this film was never made in the first place” and wrote: “He gets bad reviews on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes for the same reasons”.

The streaming service has yet to comment on the reviews.

Fans had said it was the “hottest thing ever” and “made Fifty Shades of Gray PG appear,” but critics accused the creators of “romanticizing” a dangerous relationship between a kidnapper and a victim.

One person wrote on Twitter: “Where is the petition for Netflix to boycott 365 days and stop selling this trash that is clearly mysoginist [sic] young adolescent girls and boys? Obviously, the only reason it is popular is that it is an attractive track that does all the rape and all other non-consensual behavior.

“I can’t believe Netflix is ​​selling this content like it’s absolutely normal.

‘@Netflix Please, this is my absolute humble request, take 365 days before this content influences other men to believe that women like this ***.’

Another wrote: “I looked 365 days BC, my colleague suggested it. literally 5 minutes later, I felt really uncomfortable. this film is literally the worst I’ve ever seen. it glorifies rape, sexual assault, abduction, harassment, sex trafficking, pedophilia …… “

After landing on Netflix last month, the film has become the subject of discussion on social networks thanks to its controversial depiction of sex between a kidnapper and his victim.

The story of the film is based on the first book in a trilogy by Polish writer Blanka Lipińska in which the character Laura does not expect that on a trip to Sicily trying to save his relationship, Massimo will take him away and give him 365 days to fall. love with him.

Duffy noted that fans of the film were recently seen “imploring” lead actor Morrone to kidnap them.

She wrote: “I encourage the millions of people who enjoyed the film to reflect on the reality of abduction and trafficking, force and sexual exploitation, and an experience that is the polar opposite of the brilliant fantasy represented. “

Clinical psychologist Dr. Goali Saedi Bocci said: “There are clearly a lot of misunderstandings about sexual consent and assault and such films only muddy the waters.

“We have to be extremely careful with the media we use because, whether we like it or not, these things get into our subconscious. “

But Houston fan 33-year-old Susana Rodriguez told The New York Times, “Yes, it romances Stockholm Syndrome, but it’s just a movie.

“Other films have killers and people killed, but they do not protest against these films. We are in 2020. We have to separate fiction from reality. ”

365 Days has already made the headlines with its incredible graphic sex scenes between the two main characters, one seeing Laura tied up in a room so that she can watch Massimo having a hot encounter with a sex worker.

In one of the most memorable scenes in the film, the couple finally made love in a boat as Laura begins to fall in love with Massimo.

But their dysfunctional relationship doesn’t always go smoothly, as Massimo takes on Laura by dragging her into the bedroom after she sees one of her exes at a reception.

One person wrote, “Remember, there is a huge difference between fantasy and reality. If you are a guy, please don’t have any ideas.

“No girl wants to be kidnapped and fall in love.”

Meanwhile, another viewer tweeted, “It romanticizes harassment (which is so messy, by the way), there’s Stockholm syndrome (which is a mental state where a victim falls in love with his captor and shouldn’t be standardized). “
