Massimo is a member of the Sicilian mafia family and Laura is a sales director. Whilst on a trip to Sicily trying to save her relationship, she does not expect that she will be kidnapped. Massimo was the one who kidnapped her and gives her 365 days to fall in love with him. Based on the book 365 Dni by Blanka Lipińska, this movie is one you don’t want to miss.

We begin by meeting Massimo on the beach with his father where Massimo sees a beautiful woman. But suddenly they are ambushed by black market dealers, Massimo survives the attack but his father does not. Fast forward five years and Massimo has now taken his father’s place as the head of the Torricelli crime family.

When Massimo takes Laura to his Villa he tells her that he spotted her on the beach five years previously and has been in love with her ever since. He says that he has kidnapped her and will keep her imprisoned for 365 days in the hope that she will fall in love with him. Massimo also promises Laura that he will not have sex with her without her consent.
Massimo maintains this promise. After an argument where Laura falls into the sea and almost drowns Massimo tells her that he was scared that he would lose her. After this the couple have sex several times.
When the couple attend a masquerade ball Laura is threatened by Anna, who is an ex-girlfriend of Massimo. Worried for her safety Massimo sends Laura back to her family in Warsaw. When Massimo joins Laura in Warsaw she declares her love for him and he asks her to marry him.
When they go back to Italy, wedding preparations are under way. Laura mentions that she doesn’t feel well and then she reveals to Olga (her best friend that accompanied the couple to Italy to be Laura’s bridesmaid) that she is pregnant. Before Laura gets chance to tell Massimo, he receives a phone call from a Torricelli informant telling him that the rival mafia family are going to kill Laura.

What can we expect from This Day? As the first movie 365 Days ended on a huge cliffhanger we have been left wondering! As the first movie generally followed the plot of the first book it is expected that the second movie will follow suit. We do know that Anna Maria Sieklucka is back as Laura so unsurprisingly she survives the assassination attempt.
So what else do we know about the second movie? A new character arrives in the form of Adriano, who turns out to be Massimo’s evil twin brother. There’s also a secondary romance upcoming for Olga. Also, a threat appears to Laura and Massimo’s relationship in the form of another new character, Nachos who also ends up kidnapping Laura. And as previously happened with Laura and Massimo Laura begins to develop feelings for her captor. Which is going to leave us with an explosive love triangle!
Michele Morrone and Anna Maria Sieklucka are reprising their roles as the main characters Don Massimo Torricelli and Laura Biel.
The rest of the confirmed cast is as follows:
Bronisław Wrocławski as Mario
Otar Saralidze as Domenico
Magdalena Lamparska as Olga
Simone Susinna as Marcelo “Nacho” Matos
Grażyna Szapołowska as Klara Biel (Laura’s mother)
