In this charming but off-kilter comedy, Bozo (Branko Djuric, who also wrote and directed the movie) is a scruffy but well-meaning loser from Bosnia who goes into an emotional tailspin after his Slovenian girlfriend, Spela (Tanja Ribic), gives him his walking papers. Determined to win her back, Bozo wants to prove that he can support her both emotionally and financially, and toward the latter goal, he starts working with his pal Goran (Dragan Bjelogrlic), who fixes Bozo up with a number of dubious jobs, from impersonating famous cartoon characters to transporting illegal aliens across the border. In time, Spela takes Bozo back, but he starts having second thoughts about their relationship when she finds out Goran has been paying her money to let him look at her naked. Kajmak in Marmelada proved to be a massive box-office success in Slovenia, where it became the biggest homegrown box-office success of all time, and the third top-grossing film overall.
