I, Daniel Blake

La Palma de Oro to ‘Yo, Daniel Blake’ infuriated the press accredited in the latest edition of the Cannes Film Festival. In a year Sing Street in which they competed films like ‘Elle’, by Paul Verhoeven, ‘Paterson’, by Jim Jarmusch, ‘Sieranevada’, by Cristi Puiu, or ‘Toni Erdmann’, by Maren Ade, a second Palma by Ken Loach, who already obtained in 2006 by ‘The wind that shakes the barley’, seemed to respond to a choice of lazy and conservative consensus in order to cover more risky options.

But the jury of the most prestigious film festival in the world has not been the only one who has shown enthusiasm for the new British film. ‘Yo, Daniel Blake’ has also taken the respective prizes from the public in two other reference competitions, Locarno and San Sebastián. And last week premiered in the UK with a local criticism much more in favor than Cannes and an undeniable box office success. A couple of years ago, Loach announced that he was going to retire. ‘Jimmy’s Hall’ was to be his last fiction film. However, he Swiss Army Man decided to stand up one last time to the destructive policies of the Government of David Cameron. And the result is proving quite an achievement.

The protagonist who gives his name to the film is an autonomous carpenter (a non-trivial detail in the cinema of a director who almost always gave prominence to employed employees) to which his doctor forbids working for health reasons.  Yoga Hosers However, the State does not seem willing to grant him the leave that undoubtedly corresponds to him and urges him to seek employment. So it is in the dilemma of putting at risk or your life or your source of income. Daniel enters a vicious bureaucratic cycle whose ultimate goal is to wear down, humiliate and eliminate those who resort to the State to claim their rights.
