Gritty, funny and witty,
This review is from: Kes [DVD]  (DVD)
Plenty as been said about this film, but sometimes the humour is overlooked.
Some of the scenes in the school, with the kids filmed naturally talking the way they do, and improvising, and of course the classic football sequence, all add to the depth and fun of this classic.
All the themes stand the test of time and are always relevant: the battle between the individual and the needs of society, and the tragic neglect of talent brought about by dogmatic and unimaginative thinking.
