Jolie film's low-key Serbian launch

The distributor in Serbia of Angelina Jolie's directorial debut, a love story set in the Bosnian war, says the movie will start showing there next week, but without the red-carpet premiere it had in Bosnia.

Zoran Savic of Millennium Film said: "The movie will be shown normally, so whoever wants to see it will have a chance to do so."

Angelina's In The Land Of Blood And Honey has triggered outrage among Serbs, who claim it depicts them as the only villains of the 1992-95 Bosnian war.

The drama about a Serb soldier who finds his ex-lover, a Muslim Bosnian woman, among sex slaves in a camp, received a standing ovation at the Sarajevo screening on Tuesday.

Angelina - who was also joined by partner Brad Pitt for the Paris screening of the movie - will attend the premiere in Croatia today (Friday).
