Storyline

After fainting in a school rehearsal, little Su is diagnosed with leukemia. As a result she is forced to give up the Snow White role she wanted so badly. Police Chief Cemil decides to stage the production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at his oppressive police station. He hopes to win a TV competition in order to save his dying daughter . The directorial duties are assumed by drug dealer Tatu who claims to have been a star in his youth. Prince Charming is played by a drug addict, homeless kids play the dwarfs, and a hooker plays the Queen. As the rehearsals go on at the police station, Cemil tries to hide the hostile environment of the police station from her daughter causing a series of tragicomic events like the arrival of U.N. delegates who mistake the rehearsal for a rehabilitation program.

Tries to do so much, despite lack of imagination and talent...
5 March 2001 | by (Ankara, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Sinan Cetin is a commercial director. He directs commercials about all sorts of things: Candy, Banks, Cellular Phones. And he is mostly good at what he does. Yet when he lengthens his work over 3-5 minutes, it all starts going terribly wrong. Imagine watching a commercial for over an hour. Of course, it's not that horrible, but horrible still. In one way, he is similiar to Jerry Bruckheimer, without the imagination and co-ordination.

Komser Sekspir is one of his better works. It's certainly not as bad as Bay E or Propaganda. Yet even that is thanks to the magnificent preformances of Kadir Inanýr and Okan Bayülgen, two actors that I usually extremely dislike. Yet, just like all Cetin's other movies, it has little, in fact no cinematic worth, neither does it manage to bring anything new. True, the movie definetly has some hilariously funny parts, but it does not go above that. I guess the normal audience will absolutely love the movie, as it is the equilevent of say, Armageddon, in a twisted way. For the more intellectual watcher though, it will give nothing than a few light moments and some good acting. Go watch Yilmaz Erdogan's Vizontele instead.
