Angelina Jolie's film "In the Land of Blood and Honey" she touched on Tuesday night not only the 8,000 spectators who had gathered in the largest sports hall of Bosnia-Herzegovina in Sarajevo. The film moves into the eyes of the population of the city deal mainly abroad often misunderstood recent history of the country. This one is grateful to the diva."The film has awakened in me many memories that I had really pushed it," a doctor at Kosevo Hospital said after the premiere. His hospital was then, during the 1992-95 siege of Sarajevo, shelled by Serb forces. The wounded were from artillery shells crammed into dank cellars "But above all, their attitude has impressed me," added the physician about the movie star. Angelina Jolie has been proved by the ovation from the audience touched personally. "She has left no doubt about the fact that she understands her film as a political one."In Sarajevo, said Angelina Jolie: 'The world should be aware of war crimes and not look away. " In her film is, in effect, not only a love story between a Serb and a Bosniakin. He comes to rape and concentration camps that were built in 1992, is about the dispute from the Serbian side of the crime today "ethnic cleansing" that are told through the love story.

Angelina Jolie shows that such a clear point of view, it will be deducted straight from high Bosnia rape victims. When the film was shot, this was very different. Since there was distrust. The "experiences and the suffering of raped women" would be "exploited," said then Bakira Hasecic, during the war was interned for two years in a rape camp. She is now chairman of the Organization of war victims women and women has encouraged you to identify the rapist from the past and handed over to the judiciary.The film's story sounded like it trivialization. Hasecic procured during the filming, even against the resistance of the ethnically mixed city of culture scene that remove the crew from Sarajevo and had to continue to rotate in Hungary.

But that's water under the bridge. Now put Hasecic back their criticism and found it very words of praise. The cultural scene of Sarajevo had already rejected their criticism. The film design a realistic picture of war and its causes: the Serbian military offensive after the breakup of Yugoslavia at that time was aimed at the non-Serbian population from large parts of Bosnia to expel it.This "ethnic cleansing" were wanted by the Serbian political leadership, recently told General Jovan Divjak, a Serb himself, but then defenders of Sarajevo and counsel of a multinational and multifaith Bosnia. That this correlation is shown that fear Serb nationalists in Banja Luka, capital of the Bosnian republic of Srpska Republika. You can see in the film "anti-Serb propaganda" and to prohibit its broadcast.

The Serbian nationalists would probably not talk about camp and war crimes, said the High Representative of the international community in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Valentin Inzko, the taz. The ban of the film in the Serb Republic but there has also attracted criticism. About Facebook, a student complained about "cultural and intellectual provincialism."
