The Reviews for Kes (1969) 1080p


Grim but Absolutely CaptivatingReviewed byjackhuntVote: 10/10

One of the defining films of my life. Very few films have come so close to accurately portraying Northern, English, Working Class life. Anyone from outside of this kind of community may find it grim and not appreciate the all the references. As someone who grew up at the same time and in a similar environment as the film then all I can see is the wit, spirit and sensitivity displayed in the face of individual and institutionalised brutality.

David Bradley as Billy is superb and even more amazing is the fact he did nothing before or since this film. All of the incidental characters are played by local residents - unfortunately this is sometimes clearly obvious. The football match however is, in my opinion, a classic cinematic moment.

The film has become even more poignant since many similar communities have since been devastated by the Thatcherite induced collapse of Britain's industrial base.

All in all a exceeding moving, funny, honest and captivating account of a young boy's life in a sometimes hostile, sometimes beautiful environment.

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

An Eagle for an EmperorReviewed byjohn-3109Vote: 10/10

Ken Loach's (1969) film of Barry Hines' novel 'A Kestrel for a Knave' is written with Tony Garnett (Producer of 'Cathy Come Home' for BBC TV). Set in a mining community in the north of England it tells the story of young schoolboy Billy Casper (Dai Bradley) and his unexpected attachment to a Kestrel.

We join Billy in a fatherless family where Mum (Lynne Perrie) is struggling to keep things together and retain some semblance of control over Billy's fiery elder brother Jud (Freddie Fletcher).

Suddenly we see the well-established northern working class preoccupation with keeping pigeons elevated to an altogether higher plane as Billy begins to rear a kestrel chick. We follow him as he takes on the most challenging project of his life to date and becomes totally engrossed in learning everything he can about this wonderful bird; soon well on his way to becoming expert in the ancient art of falconry.

At school, Billy finds support from English teacher Mr Farthing (Colin Welland) who is not slow to recognise the impact this bird has had upon Billy's otherwise fractured and impoverished home life.

As Billy's imagination soars with his developing rapport with the bird, we share his keen enthusiasm and rich understanding of the nature of this sharp and noble predator.

But in doing so, we pay the price when Billy's troubled home life intervenes and robs him of what has become the powerful symbol of his ability to transcend the limitations of the tough and unforgiving community of which he is inexorably a part.

This is a great film that captures the unique ability of young people to find meaning and fulfilment in the darkest and most unpromising situations.
