A young boy on the left and a young girl sharing this nice attic room on a ranch. Not sure about their names, probably Jacob Fisher and Emma Roberts.

Also on my Western blog, rating 6 and my overalls blog rating 5 (same girl, woman). I almost forgot this.

Nice ranch movie and I have few with brother and sister sharing a room but they are quite young.

Rating 5-6.

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: OK. Also a classic here. One teen boy, I think Gene Toler probably in this bedroom. No siblings?

Not sure about the time setting. Should be a Western. But looks more like the 1930s.

Rating 3-4 only.

Comment: Kieran Culkin (Biddle, right bed) and film brother Erik von Detten, both 13 yo but Kieran is younger looking, sharing this 1950s wooden farm bedroom.

Very interesting ranch movie. I like Culkin, but not von Detten.

Also on my Western blog, rating 7 and soon on my pigtails blog.

For bedroom scenes rating 7-8 for now. Needs to be fully rechecked.

Kind of beds: single
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
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.

Kind of beds: single
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Andrew Ian McMillan in this bedroom. I think no siblings.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 8.

I think, I have seen this movie on TV but can’t remember. I don’t like snow movies. Aka just “Kavik the Wolf Dog”. Novel by Walt Morey (maybe also worth reading).

Rating 4-5 for now. Typical room. Nothing special but not that bad.

Swiss Family Robinson (1976)

swissfamilyrobinson1976

Adventure series. Chris Wiggins
Year: 1976
Year in film: 1801 ?
Country: Canada
Who in bedroom: Ernest 22, Marie ~12 ?
Kind of beds: same bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: I found this scene in episode 2. Not sure who’s sharing this bed, I think it must be Michael Duhig and 12 yo Heather Graham. I wonder why Ernest is that old (22) in this series. In the novel he’s 13.

Probably the others also sleep in the same room? Including blonde Franz (Ricky O’Neill) around 13 yo and the parents?

Also on my pigtails blog rating 8.

Not to be confused with the 1975-1976 US series with a 13 yo Eric Olson as Ernie.

Rating 3 for now for the “bedroom”. Needs to be rechecked.

Armans Geheimnis

armansgeheimnis2armansgeheimnis

Family mystery series, 2+ seasons
Year: 2015-
Year in film: 2010s, Fantasy, 1900s ?
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: teen boys, girls ~15
Kind of beds: separate+single
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: Main characters are 5 teens (3 boys, 2 girls). Modern ranch and city setting obviously in the present. But also other (fantasy) worlds and/or time travel. Partly looking medieval. Some clothes look like 1900s. Pics from today’s episode s1e13. Pic 2 maybe a bit earlier (bed of younger girl). I haven’t found infos about the exact time setting (in the other world). Or the exact plot.

At least 3 or maybe all 5 beds on pic 1. Beds angled. 2 boys head to head.

Starring Gil Ofarim, Sinje Irslinger and Luise Befort.

I don’t like this series with older teens. Reminds me of “Fluch des Falken” which is similar (boring).  There are also some younger actors (relatives) including boys, like Lutz Simon Eilert and Gereon Schoel, but I only have seen some pics and no more bedrooms. Unknown episode. Needs to be rechecked.

2nd season to be aired on Easter.

Rating 3 for now only. Typical series, mainly for girls (horses).

What Love Sees

whatlovesees

TV drama movie about blind parents and blind child
Year: 1996
Year in film: (1941-) 1959
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: boys 9,12,13. Girl 15
Kind of beds: bunk bed
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
Comment: I think there are three brothers including 9 yo Coutland Mead as blind Hap and 2 older boys (12 yo Cody McMains as Billy and 13 yo Trevor O’Brien, brother of Austin as Gordy) and one 15 yo sister (Ashlee Lauren as Faith). Sorry, I’ve read that too late, so I don’t know exactly who is in this room. Nice wooden old bunk bed.

I assume that the 3 brothers sharing a room, so there must be a separate bed. Or another bunk bed or room. Ranch setting, I think mainly in the (late) 1950s (as pictured). Starring Richard Thomas as dad. 1988 novel by Susan Vreeland.

Also on my overalls blog (Mead, rating 4).

Rating 6 for now for this bedroom. Needs to be rechecked. Idon’t like Mead here. The older boys are probably more of interest.
