Angelina Jolie has aroused praise and criticism in Bosnia with her first film as a director, a story of love and war set during the bloody Balkans conflict. ... But in the Balkans, another world from the star-studded American premieres and glitzy after-parties, the film is inflaming old and deeply-held emotions. ... Former Bosnian Muslim war prisoners and relatives of massacre victims, some of them initially critical, lauded In the Land of Blood and Honey after being invited to a private screening to allay earlier fears about the subject matter.
But the leader of a Bosnian Serb prisoners group has slammed the film for its allegedly one-sided depiction of the atrocities and called for it to be banned from the country's Serbian areas. ... Murat Tahirovic, who heads an association of ex-prisoners of war, added: "This film is deeply moving for the victims who experienced all of these things.
"It is completely objective and it really tells the facts of what happened during the war. She succeeded in telling the story of the whole war in her film and to show... situations that detainees faced - mass executions, rapes, [being used as] human shields and all the other horrors."
But Branislav Djukic, who heads the Bosnian Serb Association of Camp Prisoners, had a very different reaction after seeing a trailer. He said that the film "is showing lies" as it depicts only Serbs as rapists during the war and called for it to be barred from cinemas in the autonomous Serbian half of Bosnia.

......State-sponsored political propaganda at its finest!....
The Council on Foreign Relations is a private organization—sort of....
The propaganda pretext is the same - Bernays.
The fact that this filth is CFR job must be emphasized at all times !!!
Jolie is merely a front.
To cheer up Serbs a little bit - as log as Serbs are vilified by CFR goons they are basically O.K.
Goons want to loot Serbian land and solve "Serbian question" the same way their ancestors solved Indian and Jewish question - "the only good Serbs I know are dead".
The announcement of their victory will be when the racist propaganda against Serbs as a people stop.
Are movies as a propaganda tool damaging? Sure they are. Movies kill indirectly. From The Birth of The Nation onward.
This filth is no different. The majority of the movies help construct false view of history or reinforce already spread falsehoods. The movies that depict historical context accurately are few and far between.
Jolie's hubby acted in one. The Inglorious Basterds.
I'd love to be a fly on the wall when Brad and Angelina discussed this propaganda crap.
