Comment: Canadian Michael Caloz at least in pic 1 in a modern, colorful bedroom. Scene at 22 minutes. Not sure about pic 2,  according to my notes of my VHS this must also be from this movie but I haven’t found it online. A boy at least shirtless in this loft of a cabin.  Reminds me of much earlier settings like LHOTP. Who can help here?

I also have him in Whisker (1997) rating 6.

Rating 4-5 for pic 1 and 3-4 for the “bedroom” of pic 2. Obviously no siblings. Movie is quite poor.

Comment: Jonathan Kahn in this interesting attic bedroom. No siblings. Wooden bed.

Very interesting movie with some strange scenes. I still have it completely on one of my last VHS. 1963 novel by Yukio Mishima. Nominated for 2 Golden Globes.

I don’t like to 70s nor the 60s. And no siblings.

So for the bedroom, rating 5-6 only. Plot/movie rating8-9.

Rating: 8/10
Rating: ********
Comment: Jesper Salén (main character Roland, on the right) and his older brother sharing one bed in 1920s Stockholm.

Very interesting coming-of-age movie. I could I miss this? I have still most parts on a VHS. Maybe because I mainly remembered other scenes? Many good and even funny scenes. And the 3rd movie with a tongue at frozen steel.

Of course lots of historical clothes, but I only notice a woman in a sailor dress. Boxing scenes but I think not shiny shorts.

Handsome actors. Very good movie. English titles: The Slingshot, Innocent Life.

So rating 8-9.

Comment: Samuel Costa and another person in nice, wooden beds. I think, he don’t have siblings. Maybe a friend or grown-up? I also remember another, colorful, room with his friends and also inside a tent.

I don’t remember the complete movie. Based on the 1980 comics by Ziraldo.

Another one from my VHS and also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 4). Soon on my pigtails blog, rating 6.

Nice room, good movie, so rating 6-7.

Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Dimitri, Howard ~11, 12 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: VHS only ?
I own: no
Rating: 8 /10
Rating: ********
Comment: 2 boys, probably Matthew Licht (younger brother of Jeremy Licht) and Alexander Polinski (as Howard on the bike) sharing this 70s bedroom. Obviously not brothers, but Dimitri is an exchange student. Beds aligned at 90 degrees. I only noticed 2 brief scenes at daytime. Half of the movie is set in the 1980s (grown-ups).

Some interesting scenes like boys in shiny shorts (shiny shorts blog rating 7) and dropping down their pants in front of a girl.

Interesting movie and I like this bedroom.

Although few good scenes and I don’t like the 70s, rating 7-8.

Comment:
2 boys, in a steel bunk bed. 28 minutes. Scene at 14 minutes. Discussion with many, mostly older teen boys and girls. I don’t know how many beds in each room. I only have seen one.

As announced another documentary, I found on archive.org. National Film Board of Canada, about the English school in Leiston/Suffolk after 45 years of foundation.

I don’t like the late 60s and early 70s. But it’s quite interesting. Rating 5.

180 city teens of LA at a mountain camp. 60 minutes. Very simple, selfmade wooden bunk beds. I think mainly older teens. Not sure if more than 2 bunk beds in each room/cabin. Maybe 4?

I found this (and one other) nice documentary on archive.org.

No entry on IMDb (but on tcm).

I only have checked it briefly.

Rating 6-7.

Comment:
Some orphaned Soccer boys in this dorm. Some boys sitting on the beds (even at least 5 sitting on one bed), some shirtless in shorts. Maybe around 12 beds. Dorm looking quite unusual, almost like a living room at the other angle.

Several good shiny shorts scenes including boys in pink. (Rating 8 on my other blog).

Rating 6-7 for this dorm. Nice 80s movie I found by searching for all 1983 movies on IMDb.

Comment:
A young boy, I think Benjamin Brock (“Jack Frost”) in this nice bedroom with a big, brown wooden bed. I think he has an older brother, but not in this room.

Has been aired around Christmas. Typical funny family movie like most Disney movies and movies starring Robin Williams.

Not bad. The bedroom neither. But young boy and I think few good bedroom scenes.

Rating 4-5 only.

Also soon on my bib overalls blog (young ladies, brief scenes rating 3).

Comment:
At least one young boy in this, probably 1950s bedroom. Also another scene with a young boy in a separate bed next to his parents.

Setting is between 1955-1973. but most is probably shown in the 1950s.

Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5. Greek title: Πέπερμιντ.

Rating 3-4 for the bedroom scenes.
