Netflix has made serious forays into animation throughout 2021, delivering a series of popular titles that have either been developed in-house or acquired from other studios, but it’s probably the most unexpected movie you can imagine. which troubled the list of the most watched. This weekend.
According to FlixPatrol, Danish effort from 2006 Princess managed to carve out a niche for itself in the viewer rankings, and once you find out what the movie is about, you’ll understand why it’s such a surprise. Co-written and directed by Anders Morgenthaler, this one is not for the faint of heart.
The story follows August, who ends up adopting his sister Christina’s five-year-old daughter, Mia, after her death from a drug overdose. Her brother was a famous pornstar known as The Princess, so he sets out on a quest for revenge to hunt down and eradicate his legacy by any means necessary.
Hitting, punchy and sometimes nauseous, Princess isn’t an easy watch, but that clearly hasn’t deterred Netflix subscribers much. A 57% score for Rotten Tomatoes and 67% audience don’t cry out to rave reviews either, which makes the festive resurgence all the more shocking as it’s barely laden with Yuletide’s joy and adulation.
