The escape attempts greatly anger Danijel and compound his paranoia; he frequently lashes out at her. In the film, Daniel is the who tells Ajla how to attempt to escape and encourages her to attempt. Fearing the repercussions if their relationship is exposed, he allows Ajla to escape.
Ajla shelters herself in the forest outside the city, where she is found by Bosniak guerrilla forces, who take her back to their camp. In the camp, she happily reunites with Lejla, though this happiness is short-lived when Lejla informs her that her baby died some months earlier, sending her into inconsolable grief. Over a campfire, the guerrillas lament the paradoxical insanity of the war, one in particular pointing out that he feels he hates Serbs, yet his own mother is a Serb.
Lejla blames Danijel, who has gained notoriety for his prominence in the siege amongst the anti-Serb forces. At this moment, Ajla informs the camp she was his prisoner, and the guerrillas concoct a plan for her to return to the camp and act as a mole. Ajla returns to the camp claiming it's the safest place for her, leading a confused but grateful Danijel to rekindle their relationship.
Shortly after her return, a soldier in the camp, Darko, is killed by an improvised explosive device , orphaning his infant child. While she paints, he criticizes the "Muslim decadence" of such a career, which contrasts starkly with his own mother, a lifelong farm labourer widowed during World War II. Ajla counters that her grandfather was a Partisan , and that he taught her as a child that the constituent peoples of Yugoslavia are all equal irrespective of ethnicity.
Danijel returns from the front line to find a distraught Ajla crying in the shower. Believing that she has cheated on him, he assaults her, but then sees his father's unfinished portrait and knows what has transpired.
Danijel lures Petar to a hill above the city, then kills him. He then confronts his father, who attacks him and berates him for disgracing the family, saying "your mother would turn over in her grave if she knew you liked to fuck Muslim whores. A sense of normalcy descends on Ajla and Danijel up until the events at Srebrenica. Danijel narrowly avoids being killed alongside his father when a massive explosion destroys the church whether or not Ajla had a role in the attack is left ambiguous.
In conjunction with the bombing, ARBiH forces simultaneously launch a counter-offensive. Danijel hastily organizes his troops to halt their advance, but the Serb forces are decimated and most of his men are killed. Danijel returns to the now abandoned camp and finds Ajla patiently waiting. Believing she helped orchestrate the attack, he beats her, then shoots and kills her.
Danijel wanders through the wreckage of the city, which is now near liberation. Perhaps realizing what the war has driven him to become, and that it was all for nothing, he breaks down in tears on the street. Jolie got the idea to write a script of a wartime love story after traveling to Bosnia and Herzegovina as a U. When it was revealed to the cast that Angelina Jolie wrote the script, a number of them expressed pleasant surprise. I do not wish to be part of something that for the umpteenth time presents the Serbs as eternal bad guys. The film was shot in Budapest and Esztergom during October and November Jolie explained the reason she wrote and directed the film was to rekindle attention for the survivors of a war that took place in recent history.
What were we all doing? And did we do enough? And why do we not speak about this enough?

I can't understand people who are looking for a balance that did not exist. There are some people who don't want to be reminded of these things, some even who deny that these things even happened. Those people are going to be angry. During production, it was falsely reported that the story was about a Bosnian woman falling in love with her Serbian rapist, prompting protests from the Bosnian Women Victims of War association and the revocation of the filming permit. He claimed to have made repeated attempts to contact the film's producers during the production phase, but they ignored him. He then announced his intention to sue Jolie.

Since more than 2, projects have been recognised. But, in conclusion, only one more vital thing for understanding why my grade is so low compared to the movie's budget. What beautiful two main characters actors Angelina had! And what an incredible mess. How limited was the connection between them! One point. One extra point for just having Angelina trying to make a point and investing such a huge effort in it. It really makes my heart melt. At least she tried to make a point, unlike so many directors recently.
One extra point for choosing so many actors from the countries in the region the story actually takes place in. It's really admirable, as well as the fact that she tried to film it in Serbia. Also, I liked the fact that the main character actors are, coincidentally or not, really Serbian Orthodox and Muslim, exactly like in the movie. It is almost like a reconciliation message in the PR story. Finally, I really liked the fact that the movie was filmed in the local languages as well.
