Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Engaging, ruefully funny stuff."
‑ Catherine Shoard, Guardian
"Tayanç Ayaydin makes a winning loser as Mihram, who uses Charlie Chaplin pluck to escape a Willie Loman plot."
‑ Leo Robson, Financial Times
"Subtitled and with laughs of the subtlest kind, Ben Hopkins has crafted a deliciously funny cautionary tale on the perils of greed and how globalisation can be a heartless mistress."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Like any bazaar, The Market has something for everybody."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Despite the odd misstep, Brit filmmaker Ben Hopkins handles the satirical subject with the assurance of a veteran."
‑ David Parkinson, Empire Magazine
