If you are not from the north of England you may have difficulty with the dialogue in this film but don't let it put you off this is a masterpiece. The story of a teenage boy with no friends and no hope set in the mining hear... read more

Honestly, it has been a while since I have watched this flick and maybe I should re-watch it again at some point. Anyway, back in the 90’s, I was quite a fan of Ken Loach’s work so I was quite eager to check this movie, one of his very first. Indeed, it is usually considered a massive classic from the British cinema so I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, to be honest, even though... read more

Description: Kes is a story of Barnsley boy Billy Casper (David Bradley), academic failure and eternal victim, who finds release and a sense of personal identity through training the eponymous kestrel. Committed to falconry in a way he'll never be to anything at school, Billy gets abuse from his snotty peers and malicious PE teacher Mr. Sugden (Brian Glover, typically brilliant and bullish). Only buoyant Mr. Farthing (Colin Welland) shows any interest in Billy's extracurricular activities as, he discovers this apparently useless layabout is actually highly intelligent and dedicated. Despite its mixture of gritty classroom politics and dow ... (more)

"22.1. Ken Loachin 'kitchen sink' -klassikko yksinäisestä ja kaltoinkohdellusta pojasta, joka ryhtyy kouluttamaan löytämäänsä haukkaa on varmaankin statuksensa ansainnut. En mä tästä suurempia puutteita onnistunut löytämään, mitä nyt itselle jäi sellainen fiilis, että takakannen silmäiltyäni 95% elokuvan tapahtumista vilisi silmissäni kuvaustyyliä myöten. Rakenteellisesti siis aika perussettiä ja kulkee etiäpäin juuri niillä keinoilla ja tapahtumilla, kuin mitä olettaa"
