Comment:
One boy, I think 12 yo Jorge Sanz as 8 yo Pepe(?) in this 1911 bedroom with a large, wooden bed and furniture. Not sure, if it’s his room. Nothing much special these days either.

Also on my sailor suit blog (he, rating 4) and my pigtails blog, rating 6.

Alternate title: Valentine. Starring Anthony Quinn.

Rating 4 for this bedroom.

War / drama
Year: 2012
Year in film: 1909-1916
Country: UK
Who in bedroom: Tommo ~9, Charlie ~14
Kind of beds: separate beds, 2 in 1
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 *
Rating: *****
Comment: The main plot is about 2 brothers, young Tommo 9 or 10 yo and young Charlie, played by Samuel Bottomley and Hero Fiennes-Tiffin, but there’s at least one more, very young boy (maybe Frasier Huckle as Jimmy), maybe he’s also sharing this room. At least the grown-up Tommo and Charlie later sharing one bed.

Interesting movie and a very interesting scene of both boys in underwear in a lake (rating 8).

For the bedrooms, rating 4-5 only.

Comment: One boy, I think Luke Ward Wilkinson (not sure, maybe Jack Montgomery ?) alone in this nice, colorful room. The setting is, I think in the 1910s, so very colorful for this early time.

I only have checked this briefly.  Award winning picture book (1995) by Susan Wjciechowski

Also on my bib overalls blog, few scenes, rating 3.

For this bedroom, rating 4-5.

Also soon on my pigtails blog, rating ~7.

Rating:

Rating: ***
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.

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.

Comment:
Guy Edwards in this yellow sparse bedroom and a wide, dark steel bed.

Had been aired some days ago. Somehow I hoped for better scenes and maybe sailor suits or similar.

I was a bit disappointed. Although he is blond and handsome. He also starred in “The Place of Lions” (1997).

Somehow I don’t like this movie and I doubt that the other version are better.

Rating 3-4 for this single bedroom.

Country: Soviet Union, UK
Who in bedroom: Alexei ~14
Kind of beds: single bed
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Aleksei Logunov as Prince Alexei in this wrought iron bed. Scene at 47 minutes.

I checked this bizarre movie for my sailor suit blog (check my Alexei Romanov and Rasputin films list). Although pictured on the DVD cover (rated 7-8 in advance) I haven’t found any sailor suit scenes in this movie but had to check it at high speed.

Aka “The Assassin of the Tsar”. Interesting bed and props and scene; handsome actor.

But no siblings in this room. There are better Alexei movies. But I haven’t noticed any better bedrooms elsewhere.

Starring Malcolm McDowell.

Rating 4-5.

Comment: I think 2 brothers in this bedroom. White blue Bavarian sheets. 1st pic (right bed) is called Maxi. The other boy might be Ulrich Derse as Kurti.

1991 episode s2e7 “Vorsehungen”, set in 1939.

For more infos see my sailor suit and Lederhosen blog (both are shown, rating 9 for now for Lederhosen).

Series is currently running (on Sundays) but I missed the first episodes. So I will update this later. There are also other actors, not sure if bedrooms of girls and other beds like bunk beds or more kids in one room? Filmed in Munich ad Bavaria.

Bedroom scene rating 8 for now.

Update one other boy (alone in around 1934), rating 5.

Das weiße Band – Eine deutsche Kindergeschichte

Drama by Michael Haneke, nominated for 2 Oscars
Year: 2009
Year in film: 1913
Country: Germany, A, F, I
Who in bedroom: Martin 14, Adolf 9, Gustav 8. Girls
Kind of beds: single beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, TV recording
Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Leonard Proxauf (Martin, tied to the bed due to bad habits) sharing a room with his 2 younger brothers played by Levin Henning and Thibault Sérié, one brother had to tie and untie him. Pic 2 showing their sisters, at least 3 girls, probably sharing one other room, but I don’t remember having seeing that one.

Interesting movie and very interesting scenes. Martin has to wear a white ribbon to remind him not to do anything sinful. International title “The White Ribbon”. Probably most know this famous movie.

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 3 due to very few sailor suit scenes of young boys. I have to check this long movie again later for better bedroom scenes. Sadly it’s b&w. Maybe there are some photos or behind-the-scenes clips in color.

Bedroom scenes and movie rating 4-5. Plot rating 8.

Väter und Söhne – Eine deutsche Tragödie

Year: 1986
Year in film: 1910s (bed)
Country: Italy, Germany
Who in bedroom: boy ~10 ?
Kind of beds: single bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: There are at least 2 boys shown, but from different families. I only remember this boy in this bedroom. This 4 part series covering the time between 1911 and 1947, but this scene is set in the 1910s (1911-1916).

Pic showing Marcus Hetzner as young Georg Deutz (the older Georg is played by Herbert Grönemeyer). I think he must have a brother and an older sister according to a publicity family pic. Probably they each had a room for their own, at least the girl.

Very interesting series (at least part 1), I announced this on Christmas as I think there were Christmas scenes or at least good toy scenes. Good props and clothing (also on my sailor sut blog, rating 9).

I don’t remember the name of the other kids and I have to check this again later. The boy of the other (Jewish) family is played by Chad Tabor (friend of Georg, same age) but I don’t remember bedroom scenes at his home.

For more infos see my sailor suit blog.

For bedroom scenes rating 4 for now only.
