Macedonia: Blogger Reviews “In the Land of Blood and Honey”

Vnukot joined the debate about Angelina Jolie's movie by emphasizing the technical imperfections, and was especially unnerved [mk] that “all the characters in the film speak the languages related to Bosnia, the Serbo-Croatian as it was known then, or today's Serbian, Croatian and Bosnian language. However in Angie's ‘masterpiece’ all of them, from a general… to the victims that have only one line before they get a bullet in the head, literally everybody, speak like Russian mobsters in some cheap American movie filmed in a cellar for USD 5,000. If this concept is remote to you, imagine a broken English interview of a Macedonian miss/mister universe/world candidate in China [1, 2, 3] – this film is worse!”
