Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars
This Catalan ‘Kes’ wears it’s metaphorical stripes with pride – perhaps a little too much – as it tells the story of insular teenage tearaway Arnau (Soto) who has been forced to live with his loving aunt and uncle while his mother does time for a crime she supposedly didn’t commit. He spends his days in a shed tending to his prize-winning goldfinches, working out ways of making a fast buck so he can pay for his ma to have a fair trial. As the small tragedies predictably mount up, writer-director Recha’s thesis regarding how the strong instinctively leach off of the weak comes to the fore, and if the central protagonist wasn’t so unbelievably wet, it all might have hit home a little more forcefully. Also, those adverse to – what looks like – extreme animal cruelty may want to give this one a wide berth.
