American media-service providers Netflix has refused to remove the hit film 365 Days, following several criticism and petitions against the movie.
The Polish movie has been described by many to be a ‘softcore pornorgraphy’ which perpetuates the glamourisation of rape and extreme sexual violence.
Duffy, a singer from Wales who was a victim of sexual abuse, wrote an open letter to Netflix condemning the movie as “careless and dangerous”.
“It grieves me that Netflix provides a platform for such ‘cinema’, that eroticises kidnapping and distorts sexual violence and trafficking as a ‘sexy’ movie,” she wrote.
A petition calling for the film to be removed is currently ongoing at Change.org. As at the time of writing this report, more than 8,000 persons have signed against the movie.
Netflix has however exonerated themselves from direct criticism, pointing out the film’s inclusion of a caution for violence, sex and nudity.
A spokesman from the streaming company told The Guardian.
“We believe strongly in giving our members around the world more choice and control over their Netflix viewing experience.”
“Members can choose what they do and do not want to watch by setting maturity filters at a profile level and removing specific titles to protect from content they feel is too mature.”
Meanwhile, 365 Days is a 2020 Polish romantic movie directed by Barbara Białowąs and Tomasz Mandes.
The story was about a young woman in a spiritless relationship with a dominant man, who imprisons her and grants 365 days to fall in love with him.
