One sided sequence of random events
4 June 2012 | by (New Orleans) – See all my reviews

My review wouldn't be as bad hadn't I read Angelina's interview where while in tears, she claimed she tried to be neutral and depict the failure of the international organizations to react. There was barely any of either. Serbian solders were depicted as rapists and murders, baby killers and torturers; all this while laughing in an extremely evil manner. While one would have to admit that atrocities performed by Serbs in this war were irreparable and shouldn't be ignored, one cannot deny the same systemic eradication of civilians by other sides. It's war, and ugly things happen, fueled by hated propagated by the top politicians: Croat rapes a Muslim, then some other Muslim kills a completely innocent Croat in revenge. Angelina's bias is especially obvious in a scene where the Serbian solders rape and kill people they obviously love or once have loved then admit they are war criminals. Angelina obviously did not exercise due diligence while writing the story line for this script, and poked her head in a story much more complicated that she could comprehend. It's unfortunate that people look up to her and may take this movie for granted, but anyone even remotely practicing common sense could see right through her misinformation. Watch "The Savior" and "Pretty Village, Pretty Flame" for some movies that really dig deep into the history of this tragic region. Coming from a family of Serbs and Muslims, I was raised to respect every ethnic group and during the war most people got along with the refugees from Muslim, Croatian and Serbian ethnic backgrounds. We all need to realize that we are all of the same species who had no choice in where we were born.
