This review is from: Whistle Down The Wind [DVD] (DVD)
Another film I had only ever seen in "bits" and what a revelation to watch it all through. Funny, poignant, dramatic, sad, this film has it all. Did the Hayley Mills character want to protect Alan Bates not just because she thought he was Jesus, but because as a girl on the verge of womanhood she felt something else?
Bernard Lee superb as ever as the slightly to old widower father, still wearing his ex army tunic and beret. A fantastic performance by the youngster who plays Hayley Mills little brother, providing some real comic moments. A film without bad language sex scenes, or CGI and utterly enchanting despite or more probably because of it. This is a film to buy and treasure, to sit down and watch with your maiden aunt and/or young children,(I did exactly that) rest assured they will be enchanted.
