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.

One of the better Turkish comedies
6 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Its very fashionable to bash Cetin's career after his early seminal works "Cirkinler de Sever" and "Cicek Abbas". But I think he's redeemed himself somewhat over the recent years with "Propaganda" and this film.

"Komser Sekspir" successfully plays upon Kadir Inanir's "tough guy" image juxtaposing it with a loving father's sensitivity. Then you have some great comedic turns from the supporting cast especially Okan Bayulgen (as a washed-up child actor), Ozkan Ugur and Mujde Ar.

That said, I'm not entirely sold on the ending Why do so many Turkish comedies have to have a sad or bittersweet ending ? There are also a few minor character inconsistencies. Why does the head of the "European human rights commission" have an American accent? Additionally, Pelin Batu despite a great screen presence, seems a little too old to play a schoolgirl (granted she was 22 when it was made).

All in all, I greatly enjoyed "Komser Sekspir" and I recommend you watch it.
