The Reviews for Kes (1969) 1080p


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.

The beauty of this film lies in the simplicity and purity of its message. If you want to get along, especially in a Northern English mining town in the 60's, do not ever hope for anything better. If you do, the world's gonna come and kick you in the teeth. Discuss.

Billy Casper has an empty life. In trouble with the police for theft, he shares a bed with his brother (a discontent miner willing to take out his frustrations on just about anyone nearby), goes to a school with some dispiriting and brutally repressive teachers, and has nothing to look forward to but the day when he to descends into Hades to work the coalface.

Until Kes comes along. Kes is a kestrel that Billy rears and trains. Kes soars where Billy can only dream. Kes is hope.

Ken Loach is the master of social commentary and I think this is probably his best film. This film embodies what it means to be working class in all the best traditional ways. You work, you do not have ambition, you are surrounded by people who have accepted their lot in life, you cannot hope for better, you won't be allowed to hope for better. If that sounds brutal, it is and so is this film. You aren't told right and wrong, you are told what is. It is thrust in your face for you to deal with.

The best thing about this film are all the characters that surround Billy. All have had all spirit hammered out of them at an early age and are damned if any one else is going to have any. The teachers casual and resigned brutality living what remains of their dreams by playing against the boys on the football field and imagining they are Bobby Charlton (and still losing) is perfectly displayed. The shop keeper's humouring of childish enthusiasm because he knows it ain't going to last. And most of all Billy's brother's spiteful depression. His spirit has been freshly crushed and it still rankles.

And amidst this gloom shines Billy and Kes. They soar above this nightmare like Andy Dufrense soars when he plays opera to the Shawshank inmates. Ken is telling us hope is a jewel to be treasured especially when it is surrounded by those wishing it crushed and buried.

You must see this film, especially if you've seen the Shawshank Redemption. Be warned though, there is no redemption here. Don't be afraid of the accents you non-Yorkshire folk. Just think of it as Wallace and Gromit without the cheese.

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
