Goofs

Almost all uniforms, insignia, military equipment, weapons and vehicles of the Bosnian Serb Army shown in the movie, are completely inaccurate and never seen in the war in the former Yugoslavia. Whilst some wardrobe pieces (e.g. ranks and insignia) are fully imaginary items, most other military props are obviously of non-local origin (mostly came from former Soviet Block armies, notably Hungary, where most of the filming took place). Practically all of the shown 'Bosnian Serb' distinctive sleeve insignia, are actually from the surplus of The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia Army and were, as such, never worn by Serbs in the Bosnian War.

What is this film about?
12 March 2012 | by (Bosnia and Herzegovina) – See all my reviews

I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and fortunately, do not consider myself as belonging to any of the 'sides.' However, I can tell from here that this movie stirred a lot of controversy before it had been even finished. It is ridiculous that Mrs Jolie expected that it would bring any catharsis in such divided environment where literally everything is used for political manipulation - it rather gave a fuel to new controversies and divisions - depending from which 'side' it was looked at. However, I agree that some taboo topics need to be talked about. Yet, I found this movie being surprisingly poorly done - a bad screenplay, shaky directing and the artists who did not seem to believe what they are doing. One of the most awkward thing was the way they talked in their (our) native language - it was clearly translated from English, so these people seemed to be unnatural and they sounded awkward, aside from some shy attempts of improvisations. No doubt that the director had most honorable intentions and desires, but I did not find what this movie was about in the end.
