Info 39: On TV Die Jungs-WG – season 3


Currently rerunning on Kika.



Update: La pietra di Marco Polo


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.



Update: Stapelbed (Villa Achterwerk)


I finally found my tape and added this pic to it’s entry.

There were even much more kids in this bunk bed: 13. Many headshots. Kids are quite young ~8-10 yo.

Kids (boys and girls in pajamas and other nightwear) entering this rare bed, one at a time. Then they talk about one subject and their feelings. At the end there’s a pillow fight, also to the lower bunk, and a male voice says, that they should stop or he comes upstairs. Should be the dad?

VPRO production. Just in 1989.

Main entry, rating 5


Update: Les allumettes suédoises


I have rechecked the complete series (rating 8).

Next to the great scene of Olivier and his Jewish friend David sharing one bed, there are also dorm scenes in ep 1 and ep 3 (ep 3 pictured). At least 12, probably some more beds in the dorm. Episode 1 has only or mainly dark scenes.

Also now on my bib overalls blog (rating 2, in fact an old man only but Olivier and a woman in blue aprons). Also soon on my pigtails blog.

German Wikipedia says 12 yo Olivier in 1932, French Wikipedia says 10 yo in 1930. Maybe in the novel only? Actor is 14 and/or 15.

Great series, main entry


Update: Islands in the Stream (1977)


There’s also another location, with probably 3 beds for the three brothers, a bit later, in the middle of the movie. The 3rd bed of the older brother (also aligned horizontally as well) is on the opposite, right wall. 2 desks next each other at the north east, left to the door. Especially near the end of the movie, there are also some scenes on the boat and the bunks there, I think a 2 story bunk bed.

First I thought that the scene pictured would be a dorm and with 4 or 6 beds as the room looks quite large.

The other scene with the pillow fight earlier is much better, though. Now also on my shiny shorts blog (rating 4).

Main entry, still rating 7 at
