365 Days [2020] ★

Think of every bad movie you’ve seen (including the preposterous “50 Shades” trilogy), dig deeper and there you’ll find “365 Days”, a film so atrocious and so stupid, it shouldn’t be allowed to exist in this day and age. A truly awful Michele Morrone plays Massimo, a member of the Sicilian mafia family who has his own ways of making women fall in love with him: by kidnapping them. I swear I’m not making this shit up. His victim? Laura, a sales director on vacation with her boyfriend. Massimo is convinced that she’s the woman of his dreams, so he kidnaps her and gives her 365 days to fall in love with him. Seriously, I’m not making this shit up. Of course, Stockholm Syndrome is on the menu, which leads to a series of dull erotic sequences. Looking for a story? You won’t find any here. “365 Days” fails on every conceivable level. One may also argue that it’s offensive by blatantly romanticizing kidnapping. One thing’s for sure: you won’t find a movie as badly scripted, directed, and acted as this. It’s a horrible horrible thing to witness.
