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.

original plot, nice scenario, nice movie
31 March 2002 | by (Troy, NY) – See all my reviews

The problem in Turkish cinema has always been lack of nice scenarios that are not overwhelmed with cliches. In the last few years this trend seems to disappear with the appearance of talented people and successfully produced movies with a nice plot and good scenario covering a wide spectrum of topics. "Salkim Hanim", "Vizontele", "Dar alanda kisa paslasmalar", "Hersey guzel olacak"... I consider Komser Sekspir part of this wave. The plot is original and the script is well written. The performances are good, and the cinematography is one of the best that I have seen in Turkish movies. Sinan Cetin did a nice job of directing; the movie flows nicely and easily. I think this is one of his best works. Although not perfect, Komser Sekspir is definitely worthwhile to see.
