Comment: First I think a boy in a room with s single bed, then a small dorm with 5 or 6 or even more wooden bunk beds at a boarding school. At least 3 bunk beds on this right side and at least 2 on the opposite side. Plot is a bout choir boys.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s but the furnitures in pic 2 look like the 70s. 1955 novel by William Mayne.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4.

For the bedrooms, rating 6-7.

Update: Les Parent

parent-s3e12parent-s4e20

I had to think about this great series, but in Germany there were only the first 2 seasons shown. So, I’ve checked some episodes of the later seasons.

I found rather few bedroom scenes. The oldest brother Thomas still has a room for his own (dark blue walls with a Che Guevara poster, unpictured).

Pic 1 is from s3e12 showing the same messy room of Oli, now ~13 yo (left) and Zac ~10 yo like in the earlier seasons.

Pic 2 from s4e20 showing 11 yo Zac, maybe in the same blue room. I think, I only have seen one bed. Maybe Oli now has a room for his own or Zac is in Oli’s room? Or Oli sharing a room with Thomas?

Pic 3 is from s5e5 again showing Zac but in a light grey and yellow room with one bed only.

Main entry rating 5 (series much better, but Oli looks much older in later seasons)

Bernd Benneck, around 12 or 13 yo, I think alone in this room. I think only dark lit.

Set in 1950 East Germany, but wooden bed and furniture are probably older.

Novel by Dieter Zimmer.

Great movie of the “Große Geschichten” DVD movie series (“Jokehnen”, Väter & Söhne”, “Heldenfrühling”, “Nirgendwo ist Poenichen”,”Jauche und Levkojen”). Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4. Soon on my pigtails blog.

11 or 12 yo Tom Avni (תום אבני) in this room.

Nice movie and some very good bib overalls scenes (other blog, rating 8), but I think few good bedroom scenes. I think no siblings.

So rating 3-4 only.

Original title “סופר בוי”. Aka “Superboy”. Based on Superman.

Comment:
First I wasn’t sure if this is a boy or girl, but the daughter Sabine is ~24 yo (and probably has a room for her own), so it must be the son Bertie, played by Ulf Schweikhardt (“Die Buddenbrooks (1979)”).

Interesting, late 70s West German bedroom, filmed in 1978. Somehow it looks a bit like East German. I had the same haircut in the late 70s (but a different bedroom).

Rating 4 for this. I don’t like the 70s nor Witta Pohl.

Comment:
Some, mainly older (teen) boys, maybe orphans in this small dorm. I think at least 4 beds.

I found this some time ago and don’t remember much of it.

Quite interesting, but I prefer US movies and brothers.

So rating 4 for now only.

Correct title: Indiáni z větrova, 1979 novel by Marketa Zinnerova.

Lionel Melet in this dark blue Space-like bedroom. Being undressed by his mom (bib overalls, also recently updated on my other blog, rating 4, showing the room as well). At the end also in bed with a girl (friend, not sister). Scene pictured at 44 minutes. Also the room of the girl is shown (pink and yellow walls).

Also other scenes of interest like in bath tub with his mom.

Nice late 70s film and fashion (tight jeans, overalls, skating).

For the bedroom, rating 4-5 only. Movie rating ~7.

Comment:
11 yo (season 1) Jerry Supiran as 10 yo Jamie alone in this bedroom with the robot girl Vicky (who rests standing in a cupboard). Pic 1 from s1e8 (checkered wallpaper), pic 2 from s3e24 (other wallpaper appears white and a larger window).

Nice and funny 80s series. Also girls in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4 as well).

I don’t know all episodes. Maybe more bedrooms shown (at least of the parents). But mainly this one is shown.

For now rating 4-(5) only.
