The Turkish clans, having spread a large geography, have a very effective epic tradition. While some of the epics that the number of which has not been axactly determined yet are known and narrated in one or some of Turkish clans, among these very few of them are known in all Turkish communities. While only some part of these narrations are living in oral tradition, some of them are expressed in writing and the other ones reach to the present both in oral and in writing. The Epic of Köroğlu is an epic which is known and narrated in all Turkish clans. As a result of folk science and political actions in Scandinavian countries such as Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Iceland, the Theory of Historical-Geographical Finn emerges. On the basis of theory lays to reach obvious results by comparing narration of folk knowledge and folk literature. The theory with its origin purposes to determine when and where the oral folk creations are created and what its the first possible form is. The first example which provides expanding Historical-Geographical Finn Theory and structural analyzing of folk narration emerges as “Epic Laws Theory” by Danish folk scientist Axel Olric. Axel Olric states that the rules in folk narration are super organic. These rules are indispensable part of the culture when a bord or epic poet starts to narrate, he follows these laws without realization. The theory of Axel Olric shows that there are obvious basic structures in folk narration. The epic rules of folk narration are applied to different kinds of narration by the researchers. In this article, the epic rules which Axel Olric have created with the inspiration of folk narration are put into practise in the film of Köroğlu in which Cüneyt Arkın and Fatma Girik are taking part in leading roles, and the film under consideration, is tried to be evaluated with its both obeying and non obeying aspects to these laws. At the end of the study, It has been seen that the film of Köroğlu included all the epic laws of folk narratives of A. Olric.
