There are 2 young brothers, played by Dennis Ross and Lonnie Thomas and maybe both sharing this room. Vintage steel bed(s).

I’ve checked it briefly some time for my Western blog (rating 5), but don’t remember much.

Rating at least ~3-4 for now. Boys are quite young.

Comment:
Brothers Elijah and Micah Nelson (obviously brothers in real life) sharing this room. 2 wooden beds, typically parallel aligned at the edges of the room.

11 minutes (without credits rather 9) but many scenes of the beds, mostly in the dark.

Quite interesting. The younger brother is going to the older boy trying to wake him up and jumping on his bed but not sharing the same bed.

Rating ~6-7.

Comment: 2 boys (twins Kalle und Kulle, played by Ralf and Rolf Lemcke) sharing this room and a bird. Wooden beds, horizontally aligned next each other. Pillows on the opposite sites. Also both shown in one bed but rarely. Pic from ep 2.

Also on my Lederhosen blog (rating 9) and my bib overalls blog (rating 2).

Episodes 3+4 will be aired next Monday. Episode 4 is set 5 years later. I only have checked ep 3-4 briefly.

I don’t like the 70s and the boys are quite young (in ep 1-3) and not that handsome. But quite interesting bedroom and good family series.

Rating even 5-6.

Comment: Johnny Whitaker (pictured) and his half-brother Sid (credited as cousin Sidney on IMDb, played by Joshua Hill Lewis) probably sharing this room. Nice wooden bed. Low posts.

I don’t like Johnny Whitaker with his red curls and don’t like much this musical version.

So I don’t remember more bedroom scenes. Probably there aren’t many.

Also on my bib overalls blog (Tom+Huck+others, rating 6).

For the bedroom rating ~6 as well.

La segunda guerra de los niños

Comment: I think 2 boys in this room in wooden beds. Not sure about their names. The blonde is probably David Munoz (or redhaired Oscar Canada). The other, chubby boy with short hair in pic 1, I think not from the band, is probably Rodrigo Valdecantos. Maybe they are brothers in the movie?

I only have checked this briefly. But I think rather few good scenes, mainly or only at the beginning. Also all in blue coveralls.

Rating ~4-5 for now.

I have some other movies on my bib overalls and shiny shorts blog.

Update: Les Parent

parent-s3e12parent-s4e20

I had to think about this great series, but in Germany there were only the first 2 seasons shown. So, I’ve checked some episodes of the later seasons.

I found rather few bedroom scenes. The oldest brother Thomas still has a room for his own (dark blue walls with a Che Guevara poster, unpictured).

Pic 1 is from s3e12 showing the same messy room of Oli, now ~13 yo (left) and Zac ~10 yo like in the earlier seasons.

Pic 2 from s4e20 showing 11 yo Zac, maybe in the same blue room. I think, I only have seen one bed. Maybe Oli now has a room for his own or Zac is in Oli’s room? Or Oli sharing a room with Thomas?

Pic 3 is from s5e5 again showing Zac but in a light grey and yellow room with one bed only.

Main entry rating 5 (series much better, but Oli looks much older in later seasons)

2 older boys sharing a room.

Not sure if they are brothers but it’s likely. Probably Barney and Ben?

Sorry, I can’t say much more. Directed by Eddy Kalinski. Also shirtless and (partial) undressing scenes. Rural setting.

No entry on IMDb.

Rating 4-5.

Comment:
2 brothers sharing one 1920s metal bed, also only one shown. There are more brothers, at least one more, maybe much older one (Daniel Wilson as August ?) . But not sure where he sleeps.

8 yo Alex Vincent (Child’s Play) and 15 yo Michael Bacall might share this bed.

Nice early 1920s setting, props and historical (winter) clothes.

But there are better movies. Novel by John Fante.

Rating ~4.

Comment:
Probably Sjors (blonde boy) and Sjimmie (black boy), not brothers, sharing this room. Beds aligned at 90 degrees. Sparse room.

I found this during reseach. First, I wasn’t sure if the blonde kid is a girl.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be 80s or 90s.

Rating 3-4. No entry on IMDb. 5 episodes, in total 60 minutes.
