The Reviews for Kes (1969) 1080p


At times clunky, but an outstandingly powerful social commentary.Reviewed byalshepherdVote: 8/10

Kes is the story of a few weeks in the life of a schoolboy, Billy Casper, against the backdrop of social disintegration that was the north of England in the late 1960s. Billy finds and trains a kestrel, investing in it all the latent energy that his school and rough home life have suppressed, and finding in it a release from the all too present reality of the rest of his existence.

An outstanding performance from David Bradley as Billy glues together the sometimes shaky portrayals of the other characters. As a contemporary social commentary this is a film that has many of the elements you might expect. Billy has an impoverished family with an elder brother working down the pit and a single mother struggling to cope with the situation in which she finds herself. His school is staffed by teachers who react to their part in a failing system with aggression towards the pupils. And he's quite at home with petty crime, stealing a pint from the milkman and a volume to help him train the kestrel from the second hand bookshop. But the film is saved from cliché by the honesty of the acting and the quality of the direction; it seems at times as if we're watching a fly on the wall documentary. The reactions of the boys to the rant and the caning they receive for being caught smoking is entirely natural. Brian Glover as the sadistic games master is all too credible. And the employment interview is too close to my own experience to be fiction.

The film moves to its inevitable and unforgettable conclusion and we're left wondering what happened to Billy Casper after the filming finished.

A Kestrel For A KnaveReviewed bySpikeopathVote: 7/10

Billy Casper is from the tough end of town, part of a broken home, bullied by a brutish older brother and picked on at school, Billy's life is going nowhere but down. Then one day he decides to train a baby Kestrel, and with that comes a solace he never thought was possible.......

Kes, adapted from the Barry Hines novel A Kestrel For A Knave, was the big screen directorial debut of Ken Loach. Loach at the time was of course more famed for his no nonsense television plays, but as it turns out, he, aided by Hines, crafted one of the finest pictures about escapism to have ever come out of Great Britain. Awash with bleakly oppressive realism, Kes triumphs as an experience because its sensitive without falling into a sentimental black hole. Glancing at a plot summary for the film, you would think it's merely another trite boy and his pet picture, but Kes is so much more than a youth bonding with something as elegant as a Falcon. It's about hopes and ideals, and crucially about escaping from dark factors and worries. But can those around him harness those things? It's not for nothing that the Kestrel here becomes a symbol of freedom. Beautifully photographed by Chris Menges, Kes gives hope to not only Billy, but also to us the viewers.

Tho at times an uneasy watch, it does however have its lighter moments, none more so than a quite hilarious football match sequence featuring the wonderful Brian Glover. It's actually a moment of welcome relief when the picture is being judged as a whole. The performances from the actors are of an incredibly high standard, particularly from then new comer David Bradley as Billy. Bradley having no prior experience really benefits the film greatly because it gets extra realism due to Bradley's wet behind the ears approach. He has us in his hands from the very first frame. Kes is a truly marvellous picture, a landmark in British film making, the kitchen sink drama is given serious thought, and played out with intelligence and handled adroitly by its very aware film makers. Of course a film such as this can live or die by its finale, with that, Kes' outcome is one that thankfully once viewed is never to be forgotten. It's a film that touches me personally, with many of its functions resonating to leave me emotionally involved far more than I actually cared to be from the outset. But that is a job well done by the makers. 10/10

More Than Just a PetReviewed byRindianaVote: 7/10

Most film-makers who deal with a story featuring a boy/girl and his/her pet go for the heartstrings by underlining both the kid's and the animal's cuteness. The narrative structure holding this picturesque idyll together mainly consists of predictable melodramatic incidents that endanger this relationship.

One of Loach's best pics undermines this soapy approach by intensifying the unaffectedly portrayed boy-pet relationship through the unflinchingly bleak description of the boy's surroundings. Kes is not just a beloved falcon, he represents a way to endure social hardships.

This earnest, heartfelt drama is a true gem of British working-class cinema.
