Angelina Jolie Defends Her Bosnia Film
Angelina Jolie is not new to controversies but it seems she is possessive about her directorial debut and is not willing to take any chances with the movie. The untitled flick of Jolie which is a love tale of a Serbian man (Rade Serbedzija) and a Bosnian woman (Zana Marjanovic) who meet on the eve of the country's 1992-95 war, recently faced criticism from Women Victims of War association.
The association accused Jolie’s upcoming movie, which focuses on the Serbian rapist and his Muslim captive, of presenting ‘misleading history’. However, the actress was fast to react on the allegations and got in touch with the women's group and said, "Don't judge me before you see the film."
Jolie, 35, was quoted as saying, "Obviously any dramatic interpretation will always fail those who have had a real experience. This is not a documentary."
She further added, "There are many twists in the plot that address the sensitive nature of the relationship between the main characters, and that will be revealed once the film is released."
The issue soon became the hot topic and reportedly forced the Bosnia's culture minister, Gavrilo Grahovac, to cancel Jolie's permit to shoot in Sarajevo.
However, GK Films, the movie's production company said in a statement: "We are obliged to reapply for the permit to shoot Angelina Jolie's directorial debut with the appropriate government offices in Sarajevo now that the final script is available."
GK Films added, "The stories about the film which have recently been circulated are incorrect."
