When Slovenian Spela walks out on him, Bosnian neíer-do-well Bozo resolves to get a job and prove himself. However, he is easily led astray by his wide-boy friend, and a series of comical misadventures follows. As Bozo begins to fulfill the stereotype pinned on him by racist Slovenians, he and Spela become the star cross’d lovers whose love must endure social divisions. Despite the interesting political backdrop and a bit of gun-wielding rough-and-tumble, ‘Cheese and Jam’ keeps a sanitized Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan tone, and can be enjoyed simply for that.
