Japanese nationalists have created an online petition to ban Angelina Jolie's directorial film

Unbroken

from the country's cinemas, insisting showing their soldiers abusing prisoners of war is unfair.

The story of the film is about a US Olympian Louis Zamperini, who spent 47 days in the Pacific Ocean following a plane crash during World War II before being captured by the Japanese and forced to work in a labour camp for more than two years.

Nationalists in the country are incensed by the portrayal of their soldiers in the movie, and have now set up a petition on Change.org, calling for the distribution of Unbroken to be halted in Japan as it is “contradictory to the facts", reports contactmusic.com.

The protest has already attracted more than 8,000 signatures.
