Angelina Still Trying To Make Things Work With Bosnia

| Filed under: Angelina JolieFilm Flickers

Angelina Jolie really wants to make her new film in Bosnia despite the fact that Culture Minister Gavrilo Grahovac revoked the film company's license because of the movie's controversial plot.

In Angelina's directorial debut, a Muslim woman falls in love with her Serbian rapist, which has many critics blasting both the film and Angelina.

The company that is producing the project, GK Films, is persistent in filming in Bosnia and has reapplied for a permit, describing their issues as a "technical matter."

The company said:

"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.

The stories about the film which have recently been circulated are incorrect. The dedication and commitment of the cast and crew from all over the former Yugoslavia demonstrates the integrity of this project."

We're still not too sure about the plot line, but if Angelina can make this work, then we want to check it out!

    Lol how can she make a movie where a man rapes a woman , and then she falls in love with him work ? . Its just gonna cause more problems .Hollywood needs to leave the Balkans alone, they have plenty problems as it is.Any war in the Balkans is basically Serbia againts everyone else,Serbian soldiers never won one war, because they don't even kill Soldiers from the other country but Civilians.

    This is what happens when you are a celebrity, not an actress. You are famous and have a huge ego, but are an uneducated dolt! Angelina is treading on very sensitive issues here, which she does not seem to completely comprehend. This is also what happens when you have a basic mind set (serial home wrecker) that is disrespectful toward women.

    No women in her right mind would ever fall in love with her rapist.

    Re: GothamGirl – As described, it sounds to be all about the sex and attraction instead of integrity. I don't think it'll fly as is.

    Maybe she can buy a rapist in training and bring him home to add to her menagerie.

    I never heard this movie was in the works, personally I think it sounds EPIC.

    When a movie is done correctly and is about a more serious subject matter then it can change lives. The Stoning of Soroya M. was about a Muslim woman who was conspired against and ultimately was stoned to death. This movie DID NOT skip the stoning. We watch her die just as the people who were stoning her did. In Passion of the Christ we walk along side Jesus as he is stoned and whipped. Sure these movies are controversal, but the positive thing is they open up discussion. The psycological aspect of this Muslim woman who falls in love with her Serbian rapist is intriguing and this effect is not uncommon.

    I am not sure if this is a true story or not, and if it is it is important to have the consent of the people involed/their familes, and to keep to the facts as much as possible and to try not to be biased.

    This could be a really good thing and an AMAZING film. Also considering how much money Angelina has I am sure the movie will be visually exciting ESPECIALLY if it's filmed in Bosnia.

    Re: mageick9 – At least there are some people with an intelligent point of view on this board. Thank you for your comments.

    It hurts my brain that EVEN AS YOU ARE QUOTING THEM saying that the reports about the storyline are untrue — you're reporting the fake storyline. You are so ILLITERATE MARIO! Angelina Jolie consistently works to HELP victims of rape in her role with the UN — why the heck would she do a movie where a woman fell for her rapist? SHE WOULDN'T. You should try some critical thinking. And maybe READING things before you post them. But then you couldn't be a bully. :P

    This is the most disgusting thing I have ever heard… WHYYYY are all these movies trying to make Serbian people look so bad?? I understand that every culture has bad people… whites, blacks, asian, mexican, russian, serbian, german…. but seriously… can there be ONE movie where Serbians don't look like complete assholes?



  15. 15

    Re: yourHAIRsucks

    You are soooo right. Everyone did bad things during these wars. Just because America decided to side with the Croatians now we all believe what we see on CNN… one BIAS news source COME ON PEOPLE



  16. 16

    I'm Croatian and this seriously offends me…there are plenty of other ways they could have incorporated a movie out of this war. Serbs used rape as a weapon of war, this is not a subject to be taken lightly as so much women are forced to live with what happened to them. How about have a movie where the rape victim fights back? Why make her look so helpless, weak, vulnerable…why not empower her?



  17. 17

    Re: Perezhater11 – How about instead of getting educated by the TV you actually read history books or maybe talk to somebody who went through the war? Because then you will see that the horrible, power hungry, evil people they were. Govno jedno.

    Re: AnicaYo
    As a Croat, I am also offended. There are other ways, like you said, to figure a story idea for a script that is about any part of the war. Plus, I really don't think it would be a great idea to push it forward because it would be very controversial. The company should never refer to any country as the bogus term 'former Yugoslavia'. Use the proper name or get lost GK Films. Budale.

    I'm from Serbia and this kind of movie is sick. Many people Serbian, Bosnian and Croatian suffered in this war, and she think that she know ewerything only because she is ambasador in UN.
    War is still sensitive topic here.

    Re: Brontë Ratcliffe – Exactly, 'no woman in her right mind' , people under extreme stress and abuse -especially when held hostages- react differently. Check out 'Stockholm's syndrome'.



  22. 22

    I remember a movie about a victim falling in love with her captor but this is more of a twist. Like there is no substitute for Bosnia????????????? Think about it??? So this comes down to what? THINK! Maybe Jolie should find her own personal country and run it the way SHE WANTS!! The NERVE!



  23. 23

    I'm really disgusted with the portrayal of Serbian people. Before watching too much CNN, or some other bogus news outlet, why don't you visit the country of Serbia or talk with someone who is actually from there before making some B-S assumption about the people? Remember people, whenever political interest is involved, it's very easy to claim "genocide." It's a great tactic used by the media to sway the people. Can we even account for the losses at Sarajevo?

    Another thought, how would you feel if a foreign country, such as Russia, decided to make a movie about an American soldier raping a girl in Iraq?

    Sounds like a really stupid movie anyway. She'll twist the movie to fit her sensibilities. i hope the Bosnians stay fast. If they allow it, she'll edit it to her purposes anyway.



  25. 25

    There was wrongdoing on all fronts, Serbs have had their name dragged through the mud in every way possible and they are trying to restore their country for their people, but it's people like this who want to keep reinforcing this stereotype which make moving on that much harder. As well as people who refuse to listen to anything but CNN who has clearly made their bias clear… Do not judge a country based on the extremists, you're just feeding the hate.



  26. 26

    Thank you AnnaAnna34. You finally said something of intelligence. BlahBlah, I think you should realize how ignorant some of your comments truly are. My husband is Serbian and we are currenly in Belgrade Serbia visiting our family and friends. This is my first visit to this counrty and I have read the history and heard the opinions of Bosnians, Serbs and Croats. This is a beautiful country with beautiful people. I have never felt so accepted, loved and embraced. People are warm and inviting. Not hateful barbarians as people tend to think. Please stop forming opinions based on the biased and one sided media. Serbia does have an ugly past, but so does the U.S. and many other countries. War is ugly people. No one group is ever innocent. Bad things happened from all sides in the Bosnian war. Get your facts straight before you judge. They are a country in transition, but they are heading up. I love and embrace my Serbia.

    yea, lets teach that rape can lead to love

    Re: hperezfan – Of course Serbia can be a great country, for people who aren't Croatisan, Bosnian,Slovenian,and Albanian.Not saying all Serbs are like that, but there are some extremists, trust me im not naive, my Mother is Croatian.Im not talking about Serbs in general im talking about Serbia and war.

    Blah Blah, I just read your recent comments on the last Angelina topic. Lets get this straight. EVERY country has extremists…even your precious Croatia. I was just in Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia. All was well in every country. My father in Law and half of my husbands family is Croatian born, but live in Belgrade. We all find peace and happiness with one another. We just befriended two amazing Bosnian girls while on our trip. No ignorance, finger pointing or ugliness between any of us. Everyone is moving on. Croatia's past is not much prettier honey. I am an American, and I am definitely not proud of our history either. Every country has made mistakes. Some worse than others. I am asking you to tone it down, open your mind a bit, and stop being so ignorant. Give Serbia the benefit of a bright future and stop dragging their past through the mud. Grow up.
