IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY
Written and Directed by Angelina Jolie
Somewhere amidst raising countless kids and attending to the demands of being a giant star, Angelina Jolie found the time to write and direct her first movie. Set against the backdrop of the Bosnian war in the early 1990’s, IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY tells the story of Danijel and Ajla (Goran Kostic and Zana Marjanovic), new lovers torn apart by the war who find themselves struggling to keep their love, or even just the idea of it, alive despite being on different sides of the conflict. Jolie shows promise as a filmmaker but she also shows us so much atrocity, that at times, the film is just relentless and borderline preachy.
