The story is Snow White's story, as we all know, a tale for the children. When it comes to tale adaptations, the production companies aim mostly the young audience. However, this movie is an exception. I think what the director, Ertem Gorec, did was to create a realistic tale with phenomenal actors of his time. The Snow White is played by beautiful Zeynep Degirmencioglu, that time's most popular young star, a singer and an actress. Most of her roles are stereotypes like in other tales, such as Cindrella or Pollyanna. To create a plot which is true to the tale but also aiming at a more mature audience, the director brings sort of a real background to the story with this actress. Her performance is adorable! It's like as if we could come across to that sweet creature in the forest. In addition, this is a musical movie and it takes place in the city Antalya and there are some nice views in the film like the waterfall Duden. There is also another phenomenal actress, Belgin Doruk, who's died at a very young age who is playing snow White's mother, the queen, but she only appears for few minutes. The director's choice in casting the dwarfs is excellent, they look so real(they are real short men). The actress, Suna Selen is considerably convincing in her role of the queen-witch. And also the make up is very successful even though it's 70s.. This film is one of the nicest memories of my childhood and I watched for several times, again and again because of it's very genuine.
