FilmDistrict has released the first trailer for Angelina Jolie’s directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey. The drama centers on a Muslim woman (Zana Marjanović) and a Serbian soldier (Goran Kostic) who fall in love days before Bosnian war. If I didn’t tell you that Jolie was the movie’s writer-director, you would still want to see the movie based on the trailer. That’s not to say that Jolie is a distraction, but plenty of actors step behind the camera or try to write screenplay, but not all of them are successful. Jolie looks like she’s nailed not only a serious war movie, but also a tender, heartbreaking love-story. The trailer has certainly put the film on my radar.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. In the Land of Blood and Honey opens in limited release on December 23rd.
