Editorial Reviews

In Angelina Jolie's first film as a writer-director, she unfolds a tragic love story set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War. In a land where people of different cultures long lived in peace, there was a brief moment when love blossomed between Ajla, a Muslim artist, and Danijel, a Serb police officer. Then violence tore through the nation, pitting neighbor against neighbor. Now, Ajla has been taken prisoner -- saved from the darkest horrors of war only by her captor, Danijel. As circumstances place them on opposite sides of the conflict, their relationship is ravaged by questions of loyalty and betrayal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive film directed by Angelina Jolie December 23, 2011
Format:DVD
I was invited to see this film back in July. At the time it was a secret screening. They wouldn't tell us the name of the movie, let alone who directed it. When I find out later it was directed by Angelina Jolie , I was impressed.

She did a great job capturing the atrocities of war and the lowest depths of humanity here. The movie basically shows us the events leading to, during, and after the Bosnian war from the perspective of a Serb and a Bosnian who as it so happens are lovers.

The lovers are Ajla and Danijel both excellently played by Goran Kostic and Zana Marjanovic . At first Danijel is very hesitant about carrying his orders as a Serb soldier. At first, but this doesn't last long.
He either carries out or orders other members of his team to carry some barbaric actions on the Bosnian civilians they find from either rape, torture, to eventual death.

When you see what happens you are going instantly think back to the Nazi's and what they did to Jews in the name of ethnic cleansing.

Eventually, we see through Danijel's lead, genocide being committed at every turn. Ajla is captured, but she is treated like royalty (again at first) with no one else being able to touch or come near here except Danijel.

This love story though has no happy ending as Ajla sees Danijel for what he is, not an unwilling participant in the war, but an active and willing agitator in one of the most chronicled bloodbaths recorded in Europe.

"In the land of Blood and Honey" is a superb war movie showing the type of atrocities that the Serbs were accused off while the United Nations and United States did nothing to stop it until the end.

Angelina Jolie's second directorial debut is impressive.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Dark and Controversial Movie February 25, 2012
Format:DVD
THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY is stirring a lot of controversy, both bad and good. This is actress Angelina Jolie's first outing as writer/director of a film and for many reasons she deserves applause for tackling such a subject as the Balkan War from 1992 - 1995. Unless the viewer has studied the conditions in the once Yugoslavia, a bit of history may help the view to understand the conflict. `In 1992, conflict engulfed Bosnia and Herzegovina. The war was predominantly a territorial conflict between local Bosniaks and Croats backed by Zagreb, and Serbs backed by the Yugoslav People's Army and Serbia. The Yugoslav armed forces had disintegrated into a largely Serb-dominated military force. Opposed to the Bosnian-majority led government's agenda for independence, and along with other armed nationalist Serb militant forces, the JNA attempted to prevent Bosnian citizens from voting in the 1992 referendum on independence. This did not succeed in persuading people not to vote and instead the intimidating atmosphere combined with a Serb boycott of the vote resulted in a resounding 99% vote in support for independence. On 19 June 1992, the war in Bosnia broke out. The conflict, typified by the siege of Sarajevo and Srebrenica, was by far the bloodiest and most widely covered of the Yugoslav wars. Bosnia's Serb faction led by ultra-nationalist Radovan Karadzi' promised independence for all Serb areas of Bosnia from the majority-Bosniak government of Bosnia. To link the disjointed parts of territories populated by Serbs and areas claimed by Serbs, Karadzic pursued an agenda of systematic ethnic cleansing primarily against Bosnians through genocide and forced removal of Bosniak populations.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Directorial Debut March 16, 2012
By ABB
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
An amazing writing/directorial debut by angelina jolie. The actor's were phenomenal(great choice in using local actors) and I applaud angelina on actually doing research and using facts in a situation which is so sensitive and which she got a lot of heat for. I applaud her for not backing down and the effects speak for themselves. A very real war movie, it doesn't baby you, if you're looking for a movie to baby you look elsewhere. It shows what these women have gone through and believe it or not I felt for both sides the muslims and the serbs maybe because I can step back and look at it objectively for what it was. The ending did shock me but I loved that it wasn't a hollywood ending, after all there are no hollywood endings in war and angelina jolie understands that. I look forward to her next directorial/writing effort, she's got the talent and we need more women in that field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging and intense February 29, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I wasn't sure how this would turn out. I thought I would find it only ok, a decent film from a well meaning person. I was pleasantly surprised to discover a well made, engaging, and well crafted film. The storyline, two would be lovers a la Romeo and Juliet, only they start out on the same side so to speak, seemed hard to believe but the acting, directing, and pacing of the film makes it work. An 1hr and 40 min in I was beginning to think it should be wrapping up but that's a minor bit of criticism. If you didn't know who wrote or directed this film you would think it was from someone that has done this for years. There's a lot of strength in this film. From the lead actors to the supporting cast , they keep you engaged. Daniel and Aja want so desperately to leave the war behind and be a safe space for each other but they can't. There's never a moment of peace, real peace, and I so respect Jolie for not making this a HW film. I highly recommend it. It's one of the best film I've seen from 2011. It's a shame it didn't get as much awards love as it actually deserves.
