Comment: 2 boys (Zacharay Bennett as Felix, pic 1 and I think older Joel Blake or less likeley Miklos Perlus) sharing one bed on the right and 2 young girls in the same room sharing the left bed. One is probably Cecily, not sure if the other girl is Felicity or Sara, as I think there’s a 3rd girl later, probably Sara climbing through the window from outside.

Pics from s1e13. On pic 2 one girl is alone in one bed. The setting later changed to Montreal (pic 2 ?). Are these the same wallpapers or do they swith to Avonlea? Sorry, I missed some parts and only checked it briefly.

The 2 boys are hard to notice in the dark, (Felix on the right side behind the older boy, briefly shown). I think all are siblings except main character Sara, who I think is a cousin, visiting her aunt. Not sure where she slept. Maybe in the same room and even 3 in 1 bed?

I don’t know all episode, so needs to be rechecked more carefully, especially the later seasons. Also recently updated on my bib overalls and sailor suit blogs.

For the bedrooms at least rating 6-7. Great series. Currently on Bibel TV.

Comment: 2 brothers (identical twins), played by Niek and Freek Verstraaten, almost 12 yo with red curly hair first sharing one bed. Also later with one black girl (Lotje ?) in the middle. Later, they had to separate and sleep in different beds (same room with one separation wall). But the boy in the left bed then visited the other boy. Pics from todays s2e2 (“Unzertrennlich”, “Op avontuur”?).  There’s also a little sister who got their room.

IMdb says it’s a 2015 short film. But it’s a series. Wunschliste says series 2017-. But 2015 for this is obviously correct according arte. No entry on either Dutch nor German Wikipedia. VPRO production. “zappbios”.

I don’t like the boys, but nice plot and room. They ran away.

Coming soon: Road to Avonlea. 2 brothers and 2 sisters each sharing a bed (s1e13, same room), 1900s setting. Also recently updated on my overalls blog.

Le petit bougnat

petitbougnat2petitbougnat

Drama, family film
Year: 1970
Year in film: ~1969 ?
Country: France, Italy
Who in bedroom: boys ~10-12 ?
Kind of beds: dorm, separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: Some boys in a dorm with separation walls. The black boy (Claude Amazan as main character) sleeping on the floor (also later in a wooden bed). I don’t remember if it’s at a different location. Pic 1 looks like an (unusual) dorm, maybe a modern orphanage. But the plot is about a summer camp. Probably no bunk beds.

Sorry, I’ve checked this some time ago. I don’t like the late 60s and early 70s. Typical movie. Also on my pigtails blog.

Rating 3-4 for the bedrooms.

Vägen till Gyllenblå!

Sci-Fi TV series, 5 ep

Who in bedroom: boys, girls ~10-12 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds / dorm
Available on DVD: no ?

Rating: 7/10 ?
Rating: *******
Comment: Some boys and I think girls in one dorm with rows of beds close to each other with little curtains over the heads. Located on a different planet.

Very interesting Sci-Fi series. Also including skinny dipping scenes. Handsome blonde boy.

I don’t know the complete series. Interesting dorm, strange beds, clothes and plot.

Rating ~7-8 for now. I think not on DVD. Script by Norwegian Roar Skolmen. Aka “Veien til Gyldenblå” which is also the title of his 1985 novel which would be interesting as well. But I think quite rare as well and maybe not translated. He also did some other interesting movies. One soon on my shiny shorts blog.

Comment: I think Sasha Mylanus in this attic bedroom. He also has a sister, probably with a room for her own.

Has just been aired. Nice, but typical Dutch movie. I don’t like this boy.

But nice colors. English titles: The Amazing Wiplala, Help! I’ve Shrunk the Family.

Rating ~4-5.

Comment:
Either Felix (Edouard Tremblay-Grenier) or less likely Alexandre (Alfred Poirier) in this bedroom. I think there’s only one bed and they are friends? Felix has an older brother (probably with an own room). The rooms seems very small. Needs to be rechecked.

The room is nothing special. The plot seems interesting. Some nice scenes (tighty whiteys, crossdressing, shiny shorts). Earlier on my shiny shorts blog, rating 7.

For the bedroom rating 3-4 only. Set in Montréal.

Directed by Philippe Lesage from Quebec. English title: The Demons.

Comment:
One dark haired boy, maybe David Bode, 13 or 14 yo probably sleeping alone in this bedroom.

Quite interesting, early 80s, German, large room in yellow color. But there are better ones.

So rating ~3-4 only.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 2.

Comment:
Julián Bravo as Juliancito/Tom Sawyer and his younger film brother sharing this small looking room with wooden beds. Nice Mexican adaption.

I only have checked this briefly. I think few scenes of the room.

Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Rating ~7-8. I like this room. Beds are close to each other.

Comment
Tommy (Pär Sundberg) and Annika (Maria Persson) sharing one bedroom. Beds are low and of light wooden. They are parallel aligned on the walls. Although timeless I think set in the 1940s (police men). Some clothes and props are rather 60s.

I have an entry but without pics. I searched several episodes but I only found this one. They are most often shown visiting Pippi.

Rating ~3-4 only.

Good and funny, timeless series. But there are even better ones also of Lindgren. Like Alla vi barn i Bullerbyn.
