1981-2009bed

Canadian coming-of-age movie
Year: 2009
Year in film: 1981
Country: Canada
Who in bedroom: Ricardo ~11 ?
Kind of beds: single ?

Rating: 5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: One boy, maybe Jean-Carl Boucher, I think first alone in this nice 80s bedroom. Quite good family film starring the 11 yo director Ricardo Trogi (played by Jean-Carl Boucher). Also bird’s eye view.

At the end at least 4 or 5 shown in one bed but camera moves and not showing them all at once. Maybe a composition and each sleeps in his own bed?

Interesting movie, also on my bib overalls blog, rating 3 (boy instead of girl) and on my shiny shorts blog (f,m, rating 4).

For the bedroom rating ~5-6.

Comment: Sammy Snyders probably alone in this room. I think 1980s setting but the wooden bed with the high posts looks much older. ~1900s?

The character should be 12 yo but he was 14 when filmed. So in 1979, maybe just before “Huckleberry Finn and His Friends” or in between. Nice bedroom and movie, but I think no siblings. So rating ~4-5 for the bedroom only.

He also starred in these movies here

Comment:
At least 4 bunk beds in one small dorm at an orphanage or foster home. Vertically aligned on one row. At least one bed on the left is out of white metal. Others are different and brown and some might be (partly) wooden, I first thought, but might be wrong. Starring Wil Wheaton as 8 yo Donald.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube but only noticed one brief scene.

Sorry, no better pics.

Rating ~3-4. Typical drama of it’s kind. There are better movies. Not sure about the time setting. Might be (much) earlier. Probably the 60s or 70s. Timothy Hutton played the adult Donald.

Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.

Comment:
By coincidence, I found this pic, of an unknown episode (YouTube title 10 Social issues Presented in Full House). Obviously a later episode (early 90s, maybe around season 6?). At least 2 sisters sharing this room on the 2nd floor. Obviously in the first half of the series DJ, pictured and Stephanie). In season 1, each girl has a room for her own. Later DJ and Michelle sharing this room.

In season 5, 2 toddler boys Nicky and Alex sharing one room in the attic

In one episode, DJ wants a room for her own and in one episode Jesse got this room. In Fuller House, there are 2 older boys Jackson and Max sharing this room.

More details about the rooms here

Good series but a bit annoying. Also previously on my overalls blog (f,m rating 4). For the bedrooms rating 4 as well. Studio location anyway.

Comment: Young Joey Lawrence obviously alone in this 80s room and wooden bed in episode “Umbrella Jack”.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 4.

Typical, but good 80s room but nothing special.

So rating ~4 only. I don’t know the other episodes as this is a rare series. There are very few and short clips of other episodes available like s1e9 starring Seth Green. There are also (teen) girls in other episodes.

The awarded episode “Joshua’s Confusion” seems also very interesting with a young Amish boy. No entry on IMDb. That one filmed in 1977, VHS release in 1988. Another interesting sounding episode is “Brother Tough” (1986) with a boy and an older brother who’s boxing.  Most or all episodes produced by Tom G. Robertson

Vägen till Gyllenblå!

Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Some boys and I think girls in one dorm with rows of beds close to each other with little curtains over the heads. Located on a different planet.

Very interesting Sci-Fi series. Also including skinny dipping scenes. Handsome blonde boy.

I don’t know the complete series. Interesting dorm, strange beds, clothes and plot.

Rating ~7-8 for now. I think not on DVD. Script by Norwegian Roar Skolmen. Aka “Veien til Gyldenblå” which is also the title of his 1985 novel which would be interesting as well. But I think quite rare as well and maybe not translated. He also did some other interesting movies. One soon on my shiny shorts blog.

I think it’s the bedroom of a single teen boy. Not exactly sure of whom. Maybe 15 yo Canadian Graham Verchere (pic 1).

Also a young lady in shortalls (other blog rating 3).

More infos there.

For the bedroom rating 3-4. Although I like the 80s.

Comment:
2 brothers, played by Frederick Koehler and Talesin Jaffe (as blonde Kenny, right bed) in this, mostly messy room and a bed styled like a car. Also a toddler girl, maybe also sharing this room? There are also other views like side view and bird’s eye (tidy room). Good colors. Blue sheets fit great.

How could I miss this nice 80s movie?

Also soon on my shiny shorts (grown-ups ~ rating 3), Western (boy) and overalls blogs (toddler, boy, man).

There’s also an interesting bathtub scene and maybe more good and funny scenes.

For the bedroom, rating 6-7.

Comment:
One dark haired boy, maybe David Bode, 13 or 14 yo probably sleeping alone in this bedroom.

Quite interesting, early 80s, German, large room in yellow color. But there are better ones.

So rating ~3-4 only.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 2.

Comment:
Nice 80s bedroom and interesting movie. But I forgot, who is in that bed. Probably 11 yo Jack Smith or a girl, 12 yo Aine O’Duffy. But I think it’s more likely the boy as the main character. Although the red/pinkish colors more look like a girl’s room. I think no siblings and just this bed in this room.

Also recently been updated on my bib overalls and shiny shorts blogs.

For the bedroom rating 3-4 only.
