Comment:
7 yo Matthew Lawrence as 6 yo David (unpictured) in this colorful bedroom. Painted rainbow over the bed.

For the bedroom rating 4 only. I like the 80s and the Lawrence brothers, but I think no sibling in this movie and he’s very young here. Interesting but sad plot.

I think not officially on DVD but as digital file.

Comment:
Orphaned French boy played by Sebastian Dungan in an interesting white room and white metal bed. Also 2 sisters, Melissa Francis ~10 yo and probably Arlene McIntyre sharing a room with separate wooden beds.

Also on my bib overalls blog (update coming soon, girl rating 5) and my shiny shorts blog (boys+teen boys, rating 6).

For the rooms rating 4-5. Nice 80s movie but I prefer bunk beds and more brothers.

Comment:
Some boys (around 20) at different ages in underwear (including tighty whiteys) in this rather small dorm, set in Buenos Aires in the 1980s. Simple, white and black metal beds. Probably the beds are even much older (1950s ?)

Quite interesting, but I prefer other movies and don’t like much dorms.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Title means Black Cat.

Chris Barnes (“The Bad News Bears”) in this 80s bedroom.

Handsome boy and interesting bedroom. But unfortunatley, most of the movie is about time travel (Ancient Egypt) and also no siblings. Aka The Time Crystal.

Rating 5-6. Nominated for an Emmy.

Update: Stranger Things (2016)

strangerthings-s2n

Another interesting bed in s2e1. Obviously a bunk bed. Set in 1984.

One young boy, maybe 12 yo Noah Schnapp sitting in the lower bunk using the walkie talkie. He has an older brother in the series (4 years older). Not sure who sleeps where.

I still haven’t checked all episodes.

Main entry, previously rating 5 (also recently updated on my overalls blog)

Comment:
A boy, obviously called Jean-Paul, but speaking English, I think British, around 11 yo in light blue shorts in this bedroom  with a wooden bed.

I can’t say much more. Looks quite interesting. I just found it during research. The shirt looks like the early 1980s.

Rating 5 for now.

 

Update: Stapelbed (Villa Achterwerk)

stapelbed1989

I finally found my tape and added this pic to it’s entry.

There were even much more kids in this bunk bed: 13. Many headshots. Kids are quite young ~8-10 yo.

Kids (boys and girls in pajamas and other nightwear) entering this rare bed, one at a time. Then they talk about one subject and their feelings. At the end there’s a pillow fight, also to the lower bunk, and a male voice says, that they should stop or he comes upstairs. Should be the dad?

VPRO production. Just in 1989.

Main entry, rating 5

Comment:
I think this is Francisco Nascimento (rear bed) and maybe Antonio Pedro Figueiredo in this room. Not sure if they usually share this room. Setting probably in the 1980s, but the white metal bed looks much older (more like the 1920s or even earlier).

The scene might look very interesting, but there’s just a very brief scene, the younger boy first sitting on his bed.

Quite interesting movie, but there are even better movies from Joaquim Pinto. Only one younger teen boy here. English title: Where the Sun Beats.

I’m still searching for my unknown Italian assumed coming-of-age film, unknown #9 on my sailor suit blog. I also have checked “Uma Pedra no Bolso” once more completely as it looks very similar. Can someony exclude “A Idade Maior”(1991) ?

Rating 6 for this one.

Comment: Benny (Martin Versluys) alone is this room, also at night, but also shirtless together with a light blonde boy in pic 2. Probably this is his brother (in real life) Wil Versluys. Perfect, but brief scenes and great plot.

Also on my bib overalls blog (girl, rating 6 and Benny in coveralls).

Rating 10, at least TOP rank #3.
