Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie's History Lesson Hopes

Picture:

Angelina Jolie hopes her directorial debut is more than just a "history lesson".

The Oscar-winning actress helmed and wrote Bosnian war-set love story 'In the Land of Blood and Honey', and she hopes the audience think of it as more than just a factual running of events.

She said: "I hope for the audience watching that it isn't just a history lesson, it isn't just a political film, it isn't just Bosnia.

"We tried to tell a dramatic story, we tried to make a good film with great actors, we tried to just to give traditional dramatic storytelling, and somehow in that, we also layered all these other things and it's a part of that."

Despite being pleased with the outcome of the film, she is unsure if she will ever get back in the director's chair again.

She told MTV News: "Oh I don't know. I'm still very shy about that. I still can't believe I'm even here and we did it."
