Year in film: 1900s
Country: Canada
Who in bedroom: Felix 8 + Andrew 12; 2 girls
Kind of beds: same beds, 2 in 1
Available on DVD: yes

Rating: 6/10 ?
Rating: ******
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.

Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
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.

Matinee (1993)

matinee1993-bmatinee1993-b2

Comey film by Joe Dante. John Goodman, Omri Katz
Year: 1993
Year in film: 1962
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Gene ~16, Dennis ~8 ?, others
Kind of beds: separate bed, singles
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 7/10
Rating: *******
Comment: Britain Simon Fenton as Gene (pic 1, sitting on left/upper bed, scene near the beginning) sharing a 1960s room with his younger film brother Dennis (Jesse Lee Soffer). Pic 2 showing Omri Katz phoning with a girl (both in separate rooms).

Very interesting movie set in 1962. I found it after finding Jesse Zeigler in North (1994), see my bib overalls and Western blogs. Nice 60s haircuts, clothes and props. But few and brief scenes.

I like this movie. Although Simon Fenton (and Omri Katz) are looking quite old and the other boy quite young.

Also soon on my Western blog (Dennis), rating ~5-6.

 

Trading Mom

Family movie starry Anna Chlumsky and Sissy Spacek
Year: 1994
Year in film: 1990s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Harry ~7, Jeremy ~13 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: Not sure, but obviously Asher Metchik (left bed, pictured on bottom) and older brother (also in real life) Aaron Michael Metchik (also shirtless) sharing this room. Anna Chlumsky (“My Girl”), their film sister probably sleeps in a separate room.

Also on my bib overalls blog, rating 3.

Quite large and colorful room. Wooden beds. Good, but typical 90s movie. But I think rather few good bedroom scenes. And Asher is very young.

So rating ~5-6 for now only. Aka The Mommy Market.

Vägen till Gyllenblå!

vaegentillgyllenbla

Sci-Fi TV series, 5 ep
Year: 1985-1986
Year in film: Future
Country: Sweden
Who in bedroom: boys, girls ~10-12 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds / dorm
Available on DVD: no ?
I own: 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.

Mary Poppins Returns

Year in film: ~1930s
Country: USA
Who in bedroom: Georgie ~7, John ~8, Anabel ~8 ?
Kind of beds: separate beds
Available on DVD: not yet
I own: no
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: 2 brothers and one sister sharing this room (Nathanael Saleh, Joel Dawson and Pixie Davis). Set in the 1930s as this is a sequel to the 1964 classic (which is set in the 1910s, no entry yet). Nice pajamas and short, white union suits.

New in cinemas. Also on my sailor suit blog, rating 5 for now.

I often prefer the classics. But probably a nice, but typical modern family film.

Kids are quite young. At least another brother/sister entry.

Rating ~4 for now.

Happy Christmas to all may readers!

Comment:
2 brothers, played by Frederick Koehler and Talesin Jaffe (as blonde Kenny, right bed) in this, mostly messy room and a bed styled like a car. Also a toddler girl, maybe also sharing this room? There are also other views like side view and bird’s eye (tidy room). Good colors. Blue sheets fit great.

How could I miss this nice 80s movie?

Also soon on my shiny shorts (grown-ups ~ rating 3), Western (boy) and overalls blogs (toddler, boy, man).

There’s also an interesting bathtub scene and maybe more good and funny scenes.

For the bedroom, rating 6-7.

Comment:
Around 3 beds (or are there 2 rows ?) in this small dorm. Starring Scott Baio. Pic from ep “Luke Was There” aired in 1977 (s2e1). 47 minutes (but YouTube clip is just 32 minutes). I think the room is a larger hall (no wallpapers), with wall separators and a corridor on the left. So in fact there are more beds.

As announced on my bib overalls blog, I found several rare TV movie from LCA (The Learning Company) and similar.

1973 novel by Eleanor Clymer. Set in NY.

Rating 7. I have to search for more episodes. I don’t like much the 70s but interesting room, setting, plot and actors.

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.
