Ken Loach United Kingdom, 1969

comeandsee's rating of the film Kes

this is one of the greatest films of all time i believe. very few other people, if any are so able to tap into the spirit of the working class as ken loach. the plot is deceptively simple with one boy and his pet, but loach also takes it to another level. the dialogue, the every day events and the relatable qualities are all pitched to a tee. visually, thematically and emotionally perfect. i love this one.
