Kieslowski’s favorite film is: Kes (1969)

Ken Loach‘s second film (after “Poor Cow” in 1967) represents the sadism of the educational system, the confinement of family and peer violence in contrast to the freedom and beauty of a kestrel.
Introducing “Kes” (1969).
The film is an adaptation of Barry Hines‘ novel “A Kestrel for a Knave” and is Krzysztof Kieslowski’s favorite movie.
