Comment: First I think a boy in a room with s single bed, then a small dorm with 5 or 6 or even more wooden bunk beds at a boarding school. At least 3 bunk beds on this right side and at least 2 on the opposite side. Plot is a bout choir boys.

Not sure about the time setting. Could be the 1950s but the furnitures in pic 2 look like the 70s. 1955 novel by William Mayne.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, rating 4.

For the bedrooms, rating 6-7.

2 or maybe more steel bunk beds in an orphanage or similar.

There’s also an interesting shower scene but nothig much to be seen there.

For the bunk beds rating ~5. Not that bad, but there are better movies.

Comment:
At least one wooden bunk bed in this room. Not very high. Not sure who sleeps there. Main character is the girl Punky. But mostly boys are shown here including one younger boy and two older ones. I assume that 2 boys sleeping here (or boy and girl or even 2 sisters?). Maybe 9 yo blonde Casey Ellison (pic on my other blog). Pic from s1e21. “Punky gets her own room” is the title of s1e4. So also rooms with a single bed are shown. But she previously slept on the couch. Also at least 2 steel bunk beds at camp in s4e3 (girls).

Also on my shiny shorts and my bib overalls blog, rating 3 each.

Quite interesting but rather few good scenes like at night. But I don’t know all episodes, especially the later seasons.

Also starring several guest stars like Chad Allen and Benji Gregory.

So rating 5-6.

Update: La pietra di Marco Polo

petradimarcopolo4petradimarcopolo7petradimarcopolo6

I now have checked the complete series. There are also some few other locations, like a hospital and other kids. And 7 yo Adi also sleeps in a single bed. The best is still the orange bunk bed.

Adi usually sleeps in the lower bunk and 11 yo Malcolm in the upper bunk. The grey suits are their sleepwear.

Pic 1 from ep 18. Pic 2 from ep 12 showing Adi in the lower bunk and a single bed in the background. Pic 3 from ep 20 in the hospital. At least 4 or 6 beds in this room. Pic 4 from ep 6 showing 2 separate beds, probably in the same room like the bunk bed.

Unpictured: another great scene with the bunk bed and all in the grey sleepwear in ep 26. Adi also shirtless in white underwear (ep 21).

Also on my bib overalls blog, soon be updated once more. Main entry here, previously rating 6, but I think I have to give rating 7-8.

Comment:
Probably the 12 yo main character, played by Nuna Da Costa in this room with a wooden bunk bed. Not sure who else is sleeping there. I think it’s not shown. Maybe a much older boy or man? Also other bedrooms shown (single wooden bed).

Filmed in 1989 and not sure if this is set in Canada or Portugal. As the boy is from Portugal and runs away.

English title: Manuel – The Borrowed Son.

Also on my bib overalls blog, girl rating 3.

I like bunk beds, but I think few good scenes.

So rating 3-4 for now only.

Comment:
2 teen boys in a simple, wooden bunk bed. Scene at 49 minutes, another scenes at 6 and 13 minutes.

The shirtless boy in the lower bunk wearing red briefs at the beginning (later long jeans in pic 1), the other boy green shorts.

I found this by coincidence and only have checked it briefly.

Although I like bunk beds, I give rating 4-5 for now only. Some nice scenes, but I don’t like the room nor the older boys.

Many awards. Aka Sicario, la ley de la calle. Direced by Joseph Novoa aka José Ramón Novoa.

Also soon on my shiny shorts blog (rating ~4).

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:
At least 4 metal bunk beds at an orphange. Girls but also boys (not sure if in the same room). Also a boy at home in a wooden bed.

Novels (1966-1989) by Marjatta Kurenniemi, English title: Jill, Joy and the Mysterious Stranger. Not sure about the time setting. Might appear very modern and colorful, but probably set in the 1970s? Or a mix (timeless plot)

Quite interesting, but I prefer wooden bunk beds.

Rating 4-5 only.

Also soon on my bib overalls nlog (girls, women, rating ~4).
