Komiser Sekspir

Alternative title
Commissar Shakespeare
Synopsis
Turkish feature film directed by Sinan Cetin. When he learns that his only daughter Su has Leukaemia, police officer Cemil (Kadir Inanir) sets up a theatre in his police station in the hope of winning a TV competition to save his dying daughter. Rehearsals of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs commence with the current occupants - a prostitute, glue-sniffer, mobster and political prisoner - and some street children from the theatre troupe - something that triggers a series of tragicomic events. The Shakespearean connection is unknown beyond the title (11/2008).
