Ballet documentary, 6 ep
Year: 2013
Year in film: 2010s
Country: France
Who in bedroom: boys 8-18. Girls
Kind of beds: separated
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: yes, partly TV recordings
Rating: 6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Several young boys around 10-12 yo in small dorms, partly separated with wooden walls (so at least visual privacy). Boys with light brown furniture, girls with white and pink. Very good scenes of boys in light grey ballet tights. Few bedroom scenes. 130 students. Also older ones shown but focussed on younger ones.

Has been aired some days ago (all 6 episodes in one turn) but I missed half of them. Available on YouTube. Pic 1 from ep 3. Other good bedroom scenes in ep 1 and 2.

I have to recheck it all at slow speed.

Bedroom rating 5-6 only. Series rating maybe 7-8. Some boys are handsome. But I doubt that I will watch this often and I prefer US movies and other clothes. Aka Die Tanzschüler der Pariser Oper.

Comment:
At least 4 boys (or at least 4 beds) in this room of a sanatorium. I think set in the 1990s but the white steel beds looks more like the 50s or 60s (probably they are that old). But no large dorms. Girls are in separate rooms. Also at least 4.

Also other interesting scenes (shower and sauna) and also boy and girls in overalls (see my other blog, rating 5).

For this bedroom rating 3-4 only. There are also better series. Maybe this rating 5-6.

Comment:
Several boys in this large dorm of a 1930s Spanish orphange.

English title The Devil’s Backbone. Coproduced by Pedro Almodóvar, rated R.

Also boys in bib overalls but few scenes, (see my other blog, rating 4).

Movie is much better, good setting and plot (rating 6). I don’t like much large dorms (without bunk beds).

So rating 5 for the dorm scenes.

Gian Burrasca (1983)

1910s ?

Italy
Who in bedroom:
boys ~11-13, man
Kind of beds:
dorm
Available on DVD:

Rating:
4/10 
Rating: ****
Comment:
Many white steel beds in this large, vertical dormitory of a boarding school (or reform school). I think mainly older boys. Gian is played by the grown-up Vitali (even by a girl in the 1964 series, I don’t have seen all episodes of that).

Some quite good scenes of boys in sailor suits  (rating 6 on that blog) but few dorm scenes.

Not sure about the setting, I think it’s the 1910s and that’s my first post of a dorm in that decade.

There are better movies. For more infos see my other blog.

La pietra di Marco Polo

Family series. 26 ep
Year: 1982-1983
Year in film: 1980s
Country: Italy
Who in bedroom: Adi 7, Malcom 11, Gianni 13, Marta 15?
Kind of beds: bunk bed + single
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: I think there are three brothers usually sharing a room (Adi, the youngest, played by 6-7 yo Nicola Di Pol is credited as girl on IMDb but is a boy). Some sources say that there are 5 siblings but I think Valerio is just a friend. An orange steel bunk bed and at least one separate bed in a large room. Pic 1 from ep 19, pic 2 from ep 23.

Also 4 in one double bed under one blanket, not sure if this is their sister, I do think so.

Unfortunately this series ist still not released officially on DVD, so I only have seen some few episodes available on YouTube. Maybe other bedroom constellations, locations (ship) or other actors later.

Very good series, my favourite is Malcolm (Sebastiano Marescalchi), also shirtless, see my overalls and Lederhosen blog (tag unknown). Adi also in beige overalls (rating 4).

Rating 6-7. Dorm entries coming next.

The Little Vampire (1986)

Family series, 13 ep
Year: 1986
Year in film: 1980s
Country: Canada, Germany, UK
Who in bedroom: Anton ~9
Kind of beds: single
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Canadian Christopher Stanton in this bedroom. I think no siblings, but the Vampire boy Rüdiger visits him. Not sure in what bed or coffin.

I mainly remember the German series Der kleine Vampir – Neue Abenteuer (1992 1993 1994), see my Lederhosen blog rating 8 (no entry here yet, only the 2000 movie).

I briefly checked this for my unknown 70s US washing machine movie (I might have just found it ?). More infos for that on my Lederhosen blog as well.

Very interesting series and plot. For bedroom scenes probably better than the other series. Maybe even worth buying on DVD.

Comment:
Probably 4 or even more, but mainly older teen boys in one room with 2 bunk beds (pics from s4e13) and teen girls in other rooms. At least one boy is younger (Josh Tygiel, around 10 or 11 yo), not exactly sure where he is sleeping.

Interesting Nickelodeon western sitcom. Has not been aired in Germany, so I haven’t heard of it before and found by coincidence.

I haven’t seen all episodes and have to recheck it later.

Rating just 6 for now.

Comment:
There are at least 3 brothers (Cory ~12, Eric 16, Joshua ~8?) and 1 sister. At least 2 boys sharing this room Cory (Ben Savage) and Eric. Pic from the pilot. Not sure about the boys pictured.

Sorry, I don’t know this series and have to do more research.

Good 90s US bedrooms. Beds are very close.

Rating 6-7 for now.

Also on my overalls blog (rating 4) including Chauncey Leopardi and girls. Also starring Matthew Bartilson from Kidsongs.

Available on DVD: VHS *

Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: Three brothers, played by Harley Cross (Dan), Jesse Bradford (Mike) and J.D. Daniels. One brown wooden bunk bed (boys drinking beer here) and later probably a different room with a white single bed. I haven’t noticed bedrooms at the boarding school or hospital (or is that pic 1?). Then the other beds/bedrooms are missing/not shown.

Interesting movie, there’s even a 2007 sequel but I haven’t seen that one and this only at high speed.

Rating 5-6. I don’t remember good/other scenes at the bedroom like at night.

There’s a VHS (OOP). A company selling DVDr (not sure about that (image) quality).
