Comment:
There are 3 brothers, twins Mark and Willie, 12 yo in season 1 (played by Jeremy Licht and Luis Daniel Ponce) and their older brother played by 16 yo Jason Bateman.

Currently there’s only one episode on YouTube (Nightmare on Oak Street, s3e9) and I think all 3 brothers sharing one room. Jason later sitting on the left near the left bed watching to the left (over his right shoulder) and there’s the other 12 yo shown sleeping. At least 2 beds but I think 3, maybe the room constellation changed in later seasons.

Very interesting series (at least the early seasons) aka Valerie’s Family and “The Hogan Family”. Not officially on DVD but there are some expensive DVD-R offers. (Not sure about the image quality and seller quality). 6 seasons. I like the 80s.

Although I haven’t seen much, except that episode and some pics, I give rating 9 for now.

Comment:
Several bunk beds in two rows left and right in one large, scarce dormitory room in this strict re-education center. Looks almost like a 1980s or earlier US summer camp like I’ve seen in horror movies.

At least 2 are (twin) brother (Zipa and Zap). English title Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang.

Had been aired 2 days ago. Not sure about the time setting. At least the bus (and the clothes) looks like 1950s ir 1960s. Comics started in 1947. But the plot is timeless anyway.

Quite funny movie but very few bedroom scenes (at the beginning of the movie only). And one short scene in the dark. Also boys in sport shorts but mainly in short school uniforms.

I like dorms and bunk beds. But rating 4-5 only.

Comment:
A single bed on the left and a red bunk bed on the right. Also one scene with a shirtless boy and a woman in one bed (end of the movie).

The main character is called Basile (11 yo Aurelien Wiik). There’s also a boy called Adrien and one other , probably older boy. Not sure if the others are brothers. I think Basile will be adopted. So maybe then 3 brothers.

My second entry in this series after “L’enfant sage”, rating 6. I also found one more movie (girl+boy), coming soon.

Correct apostrophe to fix the search: Regards d’enfance:
