Actress Angelina Jolie, who is gearing up for the release of her directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey, says she never intended to direct.

"I never intended to write and direct a film. But after going to a lot of countries over 10 years and meeting people post-conflict in places like Afghanistan or Darfur, where the question of intervention comes up, I wanted to express a story (about) how war changes people," nydaily.com quoted Jolie as saying.

"It's not just simply about war. It's about how human beings break down when surrounded by such ugliness and hate. And how decent people can be broken," she added.

The movie revolves around a Bosnian Muslim woman during the Bosnian War of the 1990s who falls in love with a Serbian policeman. As the Bosnian women are forced into camps, the policeman brings her to the prison that's under his command, even though his true loyalties are tested.
