Ken Loach United Kingdom, 1969

Francisco R.'s rating of the film Kes

I grew fond of the amateur actors, all with the right faces, moves and sounds, I grew fond of their simple lives and the very tough reality they convey, but after all I realized how little it takes to salvage a boy's life from its dooming future and how little it takes to leave it back to where it was. A social commentary, a parable, a neorealist masterpiece.
