The Market: A Tale of Trade Details


A small-time entrepreneur hatches a scheme to hoist himself up the ladder of success in this satirical comedy. Mihram (Tayanc Ayaydin) is a maverick peddler who will buy and sell anything that will turn a profit, legal or otherwise, and he roams the Turkish countryside in his truck looking for his latest score. Mihram can support himself and his wife Elif (Senay Aydin) well enough through his efforts, but he wants to move on to something more stable and respectable, and he would like to get black market kingpin Mustafa (Hakan Sahin) off his back. When Mihram gets a line on someone selling their business distributing cell phones, he's convinced his golden opportunity has arrived. However, Mihram doesn't have the cash to buy in right away until he hears about a local doctor whose order of life-saving drugs has been stolen by gangsters. Mihram is able to arrange a deal that puts the medicine in the hands of the doctor and leaves a wad of cash in his pocket, and he thinks he's on his way to a new business until his next fast-money scheme takes him to Kazakhstan. The Market: A Tale Of Trade was an official selection at the 2008 Locarno Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
