Angelina Jolie movie criticised in Serbia

Belgrade, Jan 22 Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut about a love story between a Serbian policeman and his rape victim has met with sharp criticism among Bosnian Serbs who said the work was biased and anti-Serb.

The movie “In the Land of Blood and Honey” set during the 1992-95 Balkan war has received critical acclaim in the US.

The film is slated to be premiered in Serbia and the Serb-populated part of Bosnia in May, and Jolie has said she would like to attend the screening.

Authorities have turned down a request by some war veterans’ organisations to ban the film.

Jolie — who is a goodwill ambassador for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees — has also been exposed to a barrage of criticism from the press and calls for a boycott to “show her she isn’t welcome” in the country.

Serbian websites have been flooded with pictures allegedly showing Jolie in pornographic acts before she became a celebrity. The pictures are reportedly accompanied with comments like “once a prostitute – always a prostitute”.

Internationally acclaimed Serbian film director Emir Kusturica has declined to comment on Jolie’s film, calling her a “propagandist” not a filmmaker.

    “Authorities have turned down a request by some war veterans’ organisations to ban the film.” Of course they did, since they actually ordered making this political so-called movie, who has only political goals (probably to support abolition of Serbian entity in Bosnia or something..)
    Bosnian war story is much more complex and it seems that there ire no good guys and bad guys, maybe some good director such as Oliver Stone could portray a bit of truth of it, Jolie not for sure.
    One does not have to be to smart that this is biased “movie” which probably will inflame ethnic tensions in Bosnia. Jolie has probably been instrumentalised by somebody else.
