Two brothers sharing this 1930s bedroom on a farm.

Few good scenes, some in the dark, it’s a short film anyway.

More infos on my overalls blog (rating 3).

I like this room and setting. So rating 7.

Comment:
Several boys in a dorm at a boarding school. Old white metal bunk beds. Main character is an 8 yo boy. Also other locations with regular separate beds, probably at home with an older brother in wooden beds angled at 90 degrees (head nest to head).

I found this by coincidence and don’t know the complete movie, yet. English title Like Stars on Earth. Subtitle Every Child is Special.

I don’t like Bollywood movies. And don’t like metal bunk beds (rating 3-4). But the other pic looks great (needs to be rechecked).

Rating 5 for now.

Comment:
15 or 16 yo Eric Brown in this large bedroom. I think no siblings. Typical brown furniture.

Very interesting and good movie, especially for it’s time. There are many similar French first love and erotic (teen) comedy movies but few good American ones. Novel by Dan Greenburg (The Zack Files).

Some other interesting scenes like a pool scene with him and his overweighted friend in swim shorts or other funny scenes.

Quite handsome boy. Good 1980s room and movie, no brothers.

Rating 6 for bedroom and movie. (Still searching for the Italian coming-of age movie on my sailor suit blog, tag unknown).

Comment:
Several young, orphaned boys in at least 3 separate rooms which are next to each other. First some different single beds, at least 3 or 4 beds including wooden and metal ones (pic 1) then one different room to the left at least 2 or more bunk beds. Also 2 boys sharing one bed.

Interesting movie, first on my sailor suit blog (few good scenes and mainly one very young boy, rating 4). Also other scenes of interest (bathtub scene of 2 boys, 1 walking around without clothes etc). Good plot, novel by Jules Supervielle. English title: The Children Thief.

Not bad but the boys are quite young and most bedroom scenes dark lit.

So rating 5 only.

One older boy in this nice 1980s bedroom, I think no more siblings in this room. 10 minutes. LDS.

I recently found some Mormon movies on YouTube. Often very handsome boys and sometimes farm settings. Also check “Feed My Lambs” on my overalls blog, rating 7.

No entry on IMDb.

Rating 6-7.

Comment:
The pic showing 4 kids at least 2 boys (on the left), probably 4 boys in electric driven, horizontal foldaway beds.

The Kettle’s have 15 kids, but around 6 are grown-ups or older teens. I think some more are females (at least 4 young girls and 2 very young boys). Farm setting first (I didn’t noticed bedrooms of interest there), but here they had already moved to the house-of-the-future. There are 10 different movies (1947-1957). I still have to check most of them.

Quite interesting and my first entry of this kind of beds. One of the most famous boys is Teddy Infuhr. Some very good other scenes including jeans and overalls (partly in other movies, soon on my other blog).

Rating 5-6 for this modern bedroom. Funny and rare but I don’t like it that much.

Comment:
Sergi Méndez (Marco, left) and Lucas (played by Raul and Juan del Pozo) sharing a bed (pic from ep. 1). 3 episodes a 60 minutes. Also both boys and a woman in one bed.

Not sure about the setting but looks quite modern (beds are older, however).

Rating 5-6 but I only have checked it at high speed.

For more infos and pics about this series see my overalls blog, rating 5.

Comment:
Several boys in a dorm. Rows of white metal beds. I think in a tuberculosis sanitarium. Main character is 16 (also tied to the bed by a woman), other boys are younger.

Time for a dorm entry. English titles: “Years of Enlightment” and Year of the Awakening.

Sorry, I don’t remember much of this movie and checked it some time ago. Seems quite interesting (for these days) but the main character is already 16. So the awakening is nothing special nowadays.

Directed by Fernando Trueba starring Jorge Sanz.

Rating 4-5.

Comment:
The main character has 2 older sisters. One (Alina is some years older), so she probably shares her room with the girl Myshka. There are also 2 boys (friend and orphan). I think she don’t had brothers but not sure. Maybe her friend is just like a brother.

However interesting wooden 1910s Russian bedroom with interesting but probably typical metal beds for it’s time. I don’t remember much more. Most scenes are outsides.

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5.

Раннее, раннее утро…, English title: Early, Early morning. Loosely based on the autobiographical 1959 novel “Dinka” (Динка) by Valentina Oseeva (Осеева, Валентина Александровна). There is also another 1971 movie about that called Найди меня, Лёня! (Naydi menya, Lyonya!) but I haven’t checked that.
