Comment:
I think this young boy (Uri Alter ?) sharing this 1960s bedroom with his older film sister Mili Avital? He has to look away when she undresses.

Also on my shiny shorts blog, mainly boys rating 3.

Quite interesting movie but the girl is very old. Unusual late setting, Rating ~4.

Comment:
7 yo Jakob Salvati in this bedroom, also sitting. Nice colorful /blue room, especially for the 1940s. Wooden bed, rather small room, so I think no siblings.

Also recently updated on my bib overalls blog, rating 4.

Few bedroom scenes, single, young boy, so rating 3-4 only.

Comment: I think 2 boys in this room in wooden beds. Not sure about their names. The blonde is probably David Munoz (or redhaired Oscar Canada). The other, chubby boy with short hair in pic 1, I think not from the band, is probably Rodrigo Valdecantos. Maybe they are brothers in the movie?

I only have checked this briefly. But I think rather few good scenes, mainly or only at the beginning. Also all in blue coveralls.

Rating ~4-5 for now.

I have some other movies on my bib overalls and shiny shorts blog.

Comment: Birgit Komanns as boy Kurt in a wheelchair, I think alone in this 1970s room.

Great and famous movie, also with a boy in Lederhosen (other blog, rating 7).

I don’t like much the 70s.

So for the bedroom rating 3-4 only. Novel by Max von der Grün

Comment:
Bernd Benneck, around 12 or 13 yo, I think alone in this room. I think only dark lit.

Set in 1950 East Germany, but wooden bed and furniture are probably older.

Novel by Dieter Zimmer.

Great movie of the “Große Geschichten” DVD movie series (“Jokehnen”, Väter & Söhne”, “Heldenfrühling”, “Nirgendwo ist Poenichen”,”Jauche und Levkojen”). Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 4. Soon on my pigtails blog.

Comment:
First I wasn’t sure if this is a boy or girl, but the daughter Sabine is ~24 yo (and probably has a room for her own), so it must be the son Bertie, played by Ulf Schweikhardt (“Die Buddenbrooks (1979)”).

Interesting, late 70s West German bedroom, filmed in 1978. Somehow it looks a bit like East German. I had the same haircut in the late 70s (but a different bedroom).

Rating 4 for this. I don’t like the 70s nor Witta Pohl.

Comment:
Some, mainly older (teen) boys, maybe orphans in this small dorm. I think at least 4 beds.

I found this some time ago and don’t remember much of it.

Quite interesting, but I prefer US movies and brothers.

So rating 4 for now only.

Comment:
11 yo (season 1) Jerry Supiran as 10 yo Jamie alone in this bedroom with the robot girl Vicky (who rests standing in a cupboard). Pic 1 from s1e8 (checkered wallpaper), pic 2 from s3e24 (other wallpaper appears white and a larger window).

Nice and funny 80s series. Also girls in bib overalls (other blog, rating 4 as well).

I don’t know all episodes. Maybe more bedrooms shown (at least of the parents). But mainly this one is shown.

For now rating 4-(5) only.

Miguel Angel Munoz alone in this vintage looking bedroom (at his grandparents) set in 1958 Andalucia.

I found it some time ago but don’t remember much.

English title: The Lame Pigeon, bestselling 1991 novel by Eduardo Mendicutti.

For the bedroom, rating 3-4 only, movie maybe a bit higher.
