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.

    The film was interesting because the man throw a bag of cats in the river and the 3 little children got the bag and got the cats out.
    The film was really good.

    I liked this film because it was interesting. That was because some parts were sad like when this man got taken away because they thought he was someone he was not. I also liked the characthers in the film. My favourite one was a girl called Cathy. Cathy has one sister and one brother also.She was the main charachter in the film. I really enjoyed whistle down the wind. I really liked the part when three people two girls and one boy find some kittens drowning in a lake near by to there house.
    If the film was a chrisp flavor it would be cheese and onion because i think that the film is interesting.

    i like this film because it is sad and happy.
    it is about some children that live on a farm and they have kittens. they are not allowed to keep them so they go around the village, asking people if they want there kittens.
    one of the children ask a lady and she says jesus will look after it. one of the children, cathy, says that
    jesus is not real.
    the next night, cathy goes to check on the kittens. but she sees a mysteryous figure lying in the hay.
    if you want to know what the mysteryous figure is, then watch whistle down the winds.
