A Bosnian minister has thrown a wrench in Angelina Jolie's directorial debut by revoking a permit for the actress to shoot in Sarajevo after a paperwork error and heated complaints from women's groups that alleged the film provides a "misleading history" of the conflict that tore the country apart in the early 1990s.

The Oscar-winning actress is currently shooting the untitled film in Budapest but is scheduled to move production to Bosnia in a month. Officially, the film has been described as a love story between a Serbian man and a Bosnian woman who meet on the eve of the Bosnian War.

But in Bosnia-Herzegovina, the media has painted the film as the story of a Serbian rapist and his Muslim victim.

"In the film, a victim is really falling in love with her torturer," Bakira Hasecic, president of the Women Victims of War Association, was quoted as saying in Wednesday's Oslobodjenje daily newspaper. The group said the film would be "misleading history" if it were permitted to film there.
