In Digital Spy's analysis of this problematic film, we wrote: "What ensues is a terrible 50 Shades-style plot of manipulation, peppered with 'kinky' sex scenes. But anyone who has tried BDSM knows that the reality is nowhere near what is portrayed here.

"The sex is barely consensual, if any type of sex with someone who has forced you to enter into a relationship on threat of killing your family can be called consensual. By any definition this qualifies as coercion."

365 Days is streaming on Netflix.
