Massimo Torricelli, a young and handsome boss of a Sicilian Mafia family, has no other option but to takeover after his father has been assassinated. Laura is a sales director in a luxurious hotel in Warsaw. She has a successful career, but her private life lacks passion. She is taking one last shot to save her relationship. Together with her bone-headed boyfriend, Martin and some other friends, she takes a trip to Sicily. She does not expect that Massimo, the most dangerous man on the island, will get in her way, kidnap her, hold her captive and give her 365 days – to fall in love with him. (Netflix)
I finally broke down and watched 365 Days movie. I went away for the night, ordered pizza and turned the movie on. So a lonely 34 year old, a plate of pizza, cheese sticks and choc chip pie, watching a drama/erotic film. Sounds exciting huh? As the movie progressed, I found myself staring at Michele Morrone, who played Massimo. He looks like a Greek God and realized the fascination about Italian men. They are beautiful specimens. Maybe that’s why I love the tall, dark and handsome.
The movie reminded me of my Love or Lust book and as I watched, I pictured how my book would play out. Would it include all the erotic elements, which as people compared, was 50 shades but hotter. The chemistry between Massimo and Laura was undeniable and my only thought was, I wished I had a man look at me like he looked at her.
Although the movie showed an aggressive alpha male, do women expect their men to do this to them? It creates a high expectation of men to become perfect lovers who satisfy their women to the fullest. Granted, some people are naturally like this. I knew an Italian who would put Massimo to shame. I think if people experimented more like this, they would get all hot and bothered by movies that show it. Sex is still a topic that is taboo to most people. I know people that watched the movie who didn’t pay attention to the sex but to the storyline, which I’m still trying to figure out how Laura became involved. Maybe I was distracted by Massimo’s physique. I can get sidetracked easily.
As those parts came up, I heard my mom’s voice in the back of my head. Why, just why? It’s not her type of movie anyway so I know she won’t be watching it and she’d be like, why do they have so show so much nudity? Granted we see Laura’s naked body quite a bit and mostly Massimo’s butt, which was another question of why we can go show boobs and vaginas but not penises? Maybe because vaginas structurally look the same and come in one size as a penis comes in many. Granted I would’ve loved to see a full penis but it’s nice to use my imagination on how big it really was.
All in all, I liked it and will probably watch it again at some point. I’m going away again next month with a friend of mine so maybe we’ll order pizza, curl under the covers and watch it again. As of know, Michele Morrone is now part of my slideshow on my computers so I can stare at that beautiful face anytime I want.
Favorite quote of the movie
Laura’s father Tomek: What are your intentions with my daughter?
Massimo: All the evil ones.
