A controversial R-rated animation finds surprise Netflix success

One of the unlikeliest and most distinctive animated movies you'll ever see has snagged surprise success on Netflix.

Netflix has been making some serious inroads into animation throughout 2021, delivering a string of popular titles that were either developed in-house or acquired from other studios, but it’s probably the single most unexpected movie you could imagine that’s been troubling the most-watched list this weekend.

As per FlixPatrol, 2006 Danish effort Princess has managed to land a place on the viewership 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 isn’t for the faint of heart.


The story follows August, who ends up adopting his sister Christina’s five year-old daughter Mia following her death from a drug overdose. His sibling was a famed porn star known as The Princess, so he sets out on a quest of revenge to track down and eradicate her legacy by any means necessary.

Hard-hitting, gut-punching and occasionally queasy, Princess is not an easy watch, but that clearly hasn’t deterred Netflix subscribers all that much. A 57% Rotten Tomatoes score and 67% audience rating hardly screams critical acclaim, either, making the festive resurgence that much more of a shocker when it’s hardly coming burdened with Yuletide cheer and adulation.
