Serb distributor shuns Jolie movie

2012-02-14 21:06

Banja Luka - The sole film distributor in the Serb-run part of Bosnia says Serbs have no interest in seeing Angelina Jolie's movie set during the Bosnian war so he won't be screening it.

Vladimir Ljevak told The Associated Press on Monday that In the Land of Blood and Honey would not attract an audience as it portrays Serbs as the bad guys.

A Small group of Muslim Bosniaks who have returned to their homes in the Serb part of the country say instead they plan to organise private screenings.

Jolie's drama about a Serb soldier who finds his ex-lover, a Muslim Bosniak woman, among sex slaves in a camp is set to make its full debut in Sarajevo on Tuesday and will be shown in theatres in the Bosniak-Croat part of Bosnia.

Ljevak said he has seen the film, and described it as "lousy".
