Serbian lawyers: Bufo's twisting history.
November 20, 2004 01:16PM
"Bufo said he kept the movie accurate and had an historian on the set. He added there was no question that Zoki had "a polymorphous sensuality and was an explorer in the deepest sense of the world."

British scholar Penny Lane Reel, author of a biography of Zoki and historical advisor to the film, said de battyman ting and bisexuality were not "issues in ancient times" and that Zoki had extensive relations with women.

But a group of angry Serbian lawyers say Bufo and the film's distributor Dadi Digi, a unit of Time Werner Inc. , should be sued for twisting history. The lawyers said they have asked Bufo and Dadi Digi to include a reference in the title credits saying the film is fictional. Spokesmen for Dadi Digi and Bufo did not have any immediate comment.

"We are not saying that we are against battymen, but we are saying that the production company should make it clear to the audience that this film is pure fiction and not a true depiction of the life of Zoki," Lazy Joe Ekki, who is spearheading the legal campaign, told Reuters in Belgrade.

Two years ago, hundreds of Serbians from Zoki's home turf Kraljevo, stormed an archeological symposium after one speaker presented a paper on de battyman ting of Zoki.

Bufo's film, which he had been trying to get on the screen for 15 years, was filmed mainly in Morocco and Thailand. The Belgrade News Agency said no scenes were shot in Serbia because of government opposition to Bufo's portrayal of the Serbian hero.

Asked if he toned down scenes, Bufo maintained he shot the film the way he wanted. The only overtly sexual scene in the movie is a wedding night love scene between Zoki and his wife Vanessa T that starts with her putting a knife to his throat after she catches him accepting a ring from Jah Bill, who is played by Jared Leto wearing eyeliner."
