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.

Another failure for Sinan Cetin, will not be the last...
15 April 2007 | by (United States and Turkey) – See all my reviews

If you are interested in Turkish cinema, and you want a few titles to get you started with, do not ever think about seeing a Sinan Cetin movie. He is a talented director unless he directs a feature film that is longer than several minutes.

Komiser Sekspir is one of the several movies Sinan Cetin directed over the years, ranging from bad to very bad, and Cetin fails once more. He is a spoiled, pretentious, unimaginative demagogue with no decent story-telling skills, and he generally builds his movies around empty, overly-populist, lumpen, pseudo-critiques of the 'system'.

The movie is badly written, actors -although experienced and talented- run around like headless chickens, plot (if there is one) is full of holes, and jokes are devoid of taste and wit. Do not see it under any circumstances, even if your life depends on it. Seriously.
