The Reviews for Kes (1969) 1080p


Tough gritty and British! they don't make 'em like this anymore!Reviewed byboffinsVote: 9/10

Adapted from the Barry Hines novel 'A Kestrel for a Knave'. Kes tells the story of hard done to loner Billy Casper, who is bullied in school, bullied at home and is heading only one way down the pit! Literally This is 1960's England, Barnsley to be exact and in those days the main proffesion was in the coal mines! He finds solitude in a wild Kestrel which gives him a purpose in life as he has finally found an interest, and he trains the wild bird, tells his pupils the duties of looking after it at school his English teacher helps and encourages him through. But the film climaxes with a shocking ending, involving his constantly hindering older brother Jud.

Watch out for the MANCHESTER UTD V SPURS re-enactment on the school pitch. with a frighteningly good performance from the late Brian Glover. A brilliant film 9/10

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

Kes or when childhood is stolen.Reviewed bydbdumonteilVote: 8/10

From the start,the hero's future is at a complete standstill.His familiar background -an indifferent mother and a brute of a brother-leaves him no hope .His school seems an alien world,of which he cannot take advantage,where the adults are hostile.The gymnastics teacher is a failed football player,and now,with his students,he's still dreaming he's coaching his football team for glory.And because he 's getting old and embittered,he uses a scapegoat when things go wrong:and of course,he always chooses our unfortunate hero.The shower scene enhances ,so to speak,the psychological and pedagogical "aptitudes" of this dumb-and a bit sadistic-man.

So,the young boy needs someone to love,and because he cannot find one,he tames an hawk.This hawk epitomizes freedom,escape from this petty microcosm.In direct contrast to the gym teacher,appears the English teacher.He wants the young boy to give a presentation on his hawk.And,in front of a spellbound class,the dog has his day.Thanks to this clever man,the boy acquires self-confidence and maybe his studies will take a new turn.

But Kenneth Loach's characters rarely escape from their fate.Because of his brother's cruelty,all hopes will be blighted,and the boy's future will probably that of the two lads in "looks and smiles". Kenneth Loach or the wrong side of England.
