What an absolutely lovely movie. Three children, two sisters and their brother, who live in a farm, discover a man one day hiding in their barn. They ask who he is, and the man, shocked, utters the exclamation, "Jesus Christ". From then on, the children think the man is Jesus.
The film follows a charming course, which will warm your heart, and at moment, break your heart too. Whistle Down The Wind is a portrait of platonic love between strangers, and the absolute trust children are willing to give adults who, they believe, deserve it.
Not a film to be missed - perfect for watching on a grey, rainy afternoon when there is nothing else to do...and simply poignant.
