When three children in a rural corner of Lancashire find a fugitive hiding in a barn on their family's farm it begins an even more dramatic series of events. The children, led by the oldest of them, Kathy, aren't aware this stranger is on the run from the police - in fact, they think he's Jesus, and so when he asks them to keep his presence there a secret, they agree without question. But secrets aren't always easy to keep - and soon word has spread among the children of the nearby village of the man in the barn, leaving Kathy desperate to stop any adults finding out as well. This fine British drama is still as powerful now as it was when it was first released back in the early 1960s.

    This film was boring at the begging but nearer the end it got better because there was more going on at the end.

    I liked it because it was really awesome it was black and white I loved it so I give it 5 stars. Although I didn't get it why the girl tells her sister about "Jesus".

    This film was old and dull but as the movie was nearing the end it got a bit more, interesting the hidden story was quite hard to find. over all the ending was the best.

    I would like to give this film four stars because it was so entertaining.I enjoyed the part when they thought they found Jesus in the barn. Actually it was a robber! I also enjoyed the part when the children tried to sneak into the barn without anyone catching them. I thought the end was quite sad when the person who robbed people had to go away with the police.
