Comment:
Eckehard ~10 yo (Stefan Naujokat) and his older sister Ilona ~16 from a single mother sleep in a larger room, dived by a curtain. A younger, blonde boy, Andreas ~6 yo, their future step-brother probably also sleeping there. Wooden, older beds.

Typical East German movie. I don’t like the 70s and the other brother is too young. Interesting room, though.

Rating 3-4 only.

Comment:
7 yo Matthew Lawrence as 6 yo David (unpictured) in this colorful bedroom. Painted rainbow over the bed.

For the bedroom rating 4 only. I like the 80s and the Lawrence brothers, but I think no sibling in this movie and he’s very young here. Interesting but sad plot.

I think not officially on DVD but as digital file.

Comment:
Orphaned French boy played by Sebastian Dungan in an interesting white room and white metal bed. Also 2 sisters, Melissa Francis ~10 yo and probably Arlene McIntyre sharing a room with separate wooden beds.

Also on my bib overalls blog (update coming soon, girl rating 5) and my shiny shorts blog (boys+teen boys, rating 6).

For the rooms rating 4-5. Nice 80s movie but I prefer bunk beds and more brothers.

Comment:
Some boys (around 20) at different ages in underwear (including tighty whiteys) in this rather small dorm, set in Buenos Aires in the 1980s. Simple, white and black metal beds. Probably the beds are even much older (1950s ?)

Quite interesting, but I prefer other movies and don’t like much dorms.

Rating 3-4 for now only. Title means Black Cat.

Comment:
At least 4 metal bunk beds at an orphange. Girls but also boys (not sure if in the same room). Also a boy at home in a wooden bed.

Novels (1966-1989) by Marjatta Kurenniemi, English title: Jill, Joy and the Mysterious Stranger. Not sure about the time setting. Might appear very modern and colorful, but probably set in the 1970s? Or a mix (timeless plot)

Quite interesting, but I prefer wooden bunk beds.

Rating 4-5 only.

Also soon on my bib overalls nlog (girls, women, rating ~4).

Comment:
At least 4 simple and very narrow, wooden bunk beds in a small dorm. Older teen boys and not very handsome. Pic from episode 2. Obviously still set in 1944 in Berlin.

I don’t like this series and expected much more. I even own the novel (but part 1) by Georg Lentz.

I like bunk beds, but there are better ones. Very few good scenes.

So rating (3)-4 only.

Comment:
One boy, I think 12 yo Jorge Sanz as 8 yo Pepe(?) in this 1911 bedroom with a large, wooden bed and furniture. Not sure, if it’s his room. Nothing much special these days either.

Also on my sailor suit blog (he, rating 4) and my pigtails blog, rating 6.

Alternate title: Valentine. Starring Anthony Quinn.

Rating 4 for this bedroom.

Leider Lustig

Comedy series
Year: 2016-
Year in film: 2010s
Country: Germany
Who in bedroom: Marius ~10?
Kind of beds: high sleeper
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Rating: 4/10 *
Rating: ****
Comment: At least this handsome blonde boy in this bedroom with a high sleeper. Pic from s1e1 (guest Chris Tall). Probably his younger sister has a room for her own.

Unfortunately very few scenes of the room. And I think even fewer in later episodes, if any. Probably a studio room anyway.

Also nice sitting scenes of the boy in jeans.

I prefer bunk beds and siblings sharing a room.

Rating 4 for now only. Series is still running and available on the Mediathek.

Update: I think the boy is called Marius. He also appeared in later episodes. But obviously few scenes.

Comment: Some, I think mainly younger boys at a small, private looking orphange. At least 10 beds in this room. I doubt that there are more rooms.

I only have checked it briefly and don’t remember all scenes.

Also a boy in a sailor suit, other blog, rating 4.

Rating 4-5 for now only.

Rating: 4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: Ricky Schroder sleeps in this bedrom. Interesting movie and very handsome actor, but the bedroom is nothing special. And I think no siblings.

So rating 4 for now for the bedroom only. I haven’t seen the complete movie for many years and hope for a soon rebroadcasting.

Nominated for an Oscar. Golden Globe for Ricky.
