Comment:
The family has 9 kids. I think 7 boys and 2 girls. I think usually 4 boys in one tiny, half of an attic room. So there are at least 2 or 3 more bedrooms. The 2 sisters, around 14+5 yo also shown sharing a bed. Maybe some of the younger brothers also sleep in the girls’ room. Most boys are around 10-11 yo. Oldest ones 12-14. Youngest boy ~5 yo.

Great movie with also other scenes of interest including shirtless scenes, a chubby boy, a boy in bib overalls and others in aprons.

Nice, Waltons-like family and table. But could be better.

Rating 6-7.

More infos and pics on my bib overalls, just updated, rating 6.

Comment:
At least 8 beds in this dorm, I think at a Pioneer camp. The sheets look like carpets (maybe they even are ?). Also other scenes of interest like shirtless scenes (swimming outside at a lake in 70s speedos) and historical clothes.

Russian title: Рядом с тобой. What means: Next to You. Novel by Boris Medovoy. I found this by coincidence.

Rating 4-5. There are better movies.

Comment:
At least one wooden bunk bed in this room. Not very high. Not sure who sleeps there. Main character is the girl Punky. But mostly boys are shown here including one younger boy and two older ones. I assume that 2 boys sleeping here (or boy and girl or even 2 sisters?). Maybe 9 yo blonde Casey Ellison (pic on my other blog). Pic from s1e21. “Punky gets her own room” is the title of s1e4. So also rooms with a single bed are shown. But she previously slept on the couch. Also at least 2 steel bunk beds at camp in s4e3 (girls).

Also on my shiny shorts and my bib overalls blog, rating 3 each.

Quite interesting but rather few good scenes like at night. But I don’t know all episodes, especially the later seasons.

Also starring several guest stars like Chad Allen and Benji Gregory.

So rating 5-6.

Comment:
Probably the 3 brothers in this bedroom. Beds aligned at 90 degrees. Starring Tye Sheridan, HunterMcCracken and Laramie Eppler.

Another one, which had been aired around Christamas. Unfortunatley, I haven’t seen it completely and mainly have checked some parts later.

Nice 1950s setting in Waco, Texas. Nominated for 3 Oscars.

Not bad, but for the bedroom, rating 4-5. I think rather few good scenes and  I don’t like this room.

Also other scenes of interest like a bathing scenes. Unfortunately no bib overalls.

Comment:
Nico Ramon Kleemann ~12 yo as 8 or 9 yo main character Hans (younger) and his film sister, Trude (real name Ruth), one year older (Charlotte Lorenzen ~12 yo) sharing this bedroom. There’s a carpet as curtain hanging between the beds as room divider.

Filmed 2015 in Vienna. Set in 1931. The 2nd half is set in ~1939 with different actors. Few good (bedroom) scenes there.

Also on my sailor suit and pigtails blog.

Very interesting movie and bedroom. Some handsome actors.

For the bedroom rating ~5-6. Movie rating ~6-7.

Update: La pietra di Marco Polo

petradimarcopolo4petradimarcopolo7petradimarcopolo6

I now have checked the complete series. There are also some few other locations, like a hospital and other kids. And 7 yo Adi also sleeps in a single bed. The best is still the orange bunk bed.

Adi usually sleeps in the lower bunk and 11 yo Malcolm in the upper bunk. The grey suits are their sleepwear.

Pic 1 from ep 18. Pic 2 from ep 12 showing Adi in the lower bunk and a single bed in the background. Pic 3 from ep 20 in the hospital. At least 4 or 6 beds in this room. Pic 4 from ep 6 showing 2 separate beds, probably in the same room like the bunk bed.

Unpictured: another great scene with the bunk bed and all in the grey sleepwear in ep 26. Adi also shirtless in white underwear (ep 21).

Also on my bib overalls blog, soon be updated once more. Main entry here, previously rating 6, but I think I have to give rating 7-8.

Comment:
Probably the 12 yo main character, played by Nuna Da Costa in this room with a wooden bunk bed. Not sure who else is sleeping there. I think it’s not shown. Maybe a much older boy or man? Also other bedrooms shown (single wooden bed).

Filmed in 1989 and not sure if this is set in Canada or Portugal. As the boy is from Portugal and runs away.

English title: Manuel – The Borrowed Son.

Also on my bib overalls blog, girl rating 3.

I like bunk beds, but I think few good scenes.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment:
At least one bed in this bedroom, I think from 19 yo Rick, played by Zach Galligan? Also starring younger siblings River Phoenix and Heather O’Rourke, all shown in this room next to Molly Ringwald as well but probably with rooms for their own. I haven’t noticed the other rooms.

Nice 80s movie and bedroom. And handsome River Phoenix.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Heather O’Rourke, shortalls rating 5-, soon be updated) and soon on my shiny shorts blog rating ~5.

Rating ~5-6 for the bedroom.

Aka “Surviving: A Family in Crisis” and “Tragedy”. I think it’s still not officially on DVD.
