Early 80s sci-fi movie about friendly alien

Help! I have been trying to find out the name of this movie for years.  Saw it on British television in 1983, I believe it was on ITV during the mid-afternoon.  It was about a human-like alien who visits a small town in a very  cold and snowy country (Canada?  Sweden?  Someplace not in the U.S.)  He befriends two children in the town, who attempt to hide him from the authorities until he can repair his spaceship and leave.  The two kids are a boy and girl (possibly brother and sister).  In the film, the kids visit the alien on his spaceship and he shows them a machine that blows bubbles and candy into the air.  Towards the end of the film, the alien gets his spaceship working and he flies away, watching the kids and town through his monitor.  It was shown probably to tie-in with all the E.T. hysteria going on at the time (it was in theaters when this was aired).  It looked like it was foreign made, but I’m pretty sure the cast was speaking English and wasn’t dubbed (although I’m not 100% sure on that).  Has anyone ever seen this film or have any idea what it is called???  It’s been driving me crazy for 30 years!
