Le gone du Chaâba

26 Feb


Year: 1997
Year in film: 1965
Country: France
Who in bibs: Omar ~9 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+ ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least this young boy, I think Bouzid Negnoug as 9 yo main character Omar (looking much younger to me) in light grey, I think cotton shortalls. Also this or more likely an even younger boy, maybe Nabil Ghalem, around 5 yo in long, light blue (jeans ?) bibs, shirtless but with a jacket.

I only have checked this complete movie at high speed. Pic taken from the trailer.

Autobiographical 1986 novel by Algerian Azouz Begag set in a suburb of Lyon. English title: The Kid from Chaaba. Several awards and a nomination for a César. Directed by Christophe Ruggia (“Les diables”, 2002) !

Maybe a quite interesting movie. But the boy looks very young. Simple shortalls.

Rating 2-3 only.

Nightworld: Lost Souls

25 Feb


Thriller starring John Savage
Year: 1998

Country: Canada, Luxembourg
Who in bibs: Meaghan ~11
Available on DVD: yes
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: medium
Rating:  6/10
Rating: ******
Comment: Britain Laura Harling as autistic Meaghan in dark blue shortalls, also sitting. I think rather few scenes.

Another one from my VHS recordings. As usual only a partly recording left. Luckily I have the title.

Rating 5-6. I like dark denim.

Tsatsiki, farsan och olivkriget

Family film, part 3
Year: 2015
Year in film: 2010s ?
Country: Sweden
Who in bibs: Alva ~12
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: medium+ ?
Rating: 5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least Sara Vilén in short shortalls, bib at very low position. Even making a headstand (like Mary-Ellen Walton).

Also boys and girls in swimwear including a boy in pink board shorts. On my shiny shorts blog, I currently only have the 2nd movie “Tsastiki – Vänner för alltid” (boys rating 5).

I don’t know the complete movie yet. Typical movie of it’s kind. Not that bad.

Rating 4-5 for now only. I don’t like this girl and neither shortalls.

English title: Tsatsiki, Dad and the Olive War.

Der Lehrer

13 Jan


Comedy series. 5+ seasons
Year: 2009-
Year in film: 2016
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: girl ~10
Available on DVD: no?
I own: yes, partly TV recording
Bib occurence: low *
Rating: 4/10 ?
Rating: ****
Comment: One girl, around 10 or 11 yo in faded blue shortalls and colorful tights underneath in yesterday’s episode s5e2 “Paula mehr Popo”. Other young cheerleaders in jeans shorts and short and long black and white tights underneath. Also a good plot about a girl who wants to be a boy (not the girl in shortalls but the red dress, later in short hair).

I missed some few parts but obviously few scenes only. Maybe more and other actors in other episodes? I haven’t seen this series before. Students are only shown about half of the time including teens.

There are at least kids including boys and a woman in light blue protecting coveralls in season 3 (maybe s3e9 ?).

There a similar series with teachers, especially “L’instit” which is much better.

Rating 4 for now only.

Uomini & donne, amori & bugie

Drama starring Ornella Muti
Year: 2003
Year in film: 1962-(1969)
Country: Italy
Who in bibs: Veronica ~8 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low ?
Rating:  3/10 ?
Rating: ***
Comment: At least Giulia Lombardi (little kid, middle, front), looking like a boy although a long ponytail, in hickory striped shortalls, standing and sitting on the floor (latter in pigtails), and in light grey Lederhosen next to an older girl and some boys. Perfect blue eyes, same as her little brother Luca.

Although on DVD (I still consider buying it), it seems quite rare and there’s only one backstage clip (not showing the shortalls) and not even a trailer. Some pics are on the web

Some more infos on my Lederhosen blog (rating 8), soon on my pigtails blog (rating 7). Rating 3-4 for now for the shortalls. I assume few good scenes.

Does anybody know this movie and can tell if it’s worth buying?

Charlie & Louise – Das doppelte Lottchen

31 Dec


Family film. Novel Erich Kästner
Year: 1994
Year in film: 1990s
Country: Germany
Who in bibs: girl ~13, boys ~4
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: low+
Rating:  5/10
Rating: *****
Comment: Either Fritzi or Floriane Eichhorn in dark cuffed up bibs or shortalls with wide stripes (scene pictured at 1h08). Also 2 toddler boys sitting in medium blue bibs (at 1h13, no need for a pic of those).

Has just been aired, but I missed most of it. Maybe there are more scenes? On the first airing I have seen just the beginning.

I don’t like modern remakes. Needs to be rechecked.

Available on the arte mediathek.

Das doppelte Lottchen (1950) soon on my pigtails blog, rating 7. Also note “Das fliegende Klassenzimmer (1954)” on my Lederhosen blog and a boy in pigtails/wig (soon).

I have 2 more movies about one of the twins.

Please also note my previous entry.

Unfortunately I also missed most of the 2nd rebroadcasting and only have checked some parts online. Obviously 2 or 3 rather brief scenes around 1h00. Sitting, but mainly rear view and frontal from a distance. Still rating 5-6.

Rating:  6/10 ?

Comment: At least 2 or 3 young girls at school in different bibs and at least one in shortalls, also in light green rubber boots (shown on the DVD cover). Cycling but unknown if in bibs as well. Maybe farm contents at least rural setting?

I don’t know the complete movie yet. Maybe more actors, maybe even boys or women?

Can’t say much more yet. Pics from the trailer. Also soon on my pigtails blog.

Looks interesting. Reminds of similar school movies like Mees Kees (rating 3).

Rating 6-7 for now.


Update 7: Chiquititas Brasil (1997) season 4

21 Dec


An older update. Thanks db1 for pointing out this scene, showing 12 yo Jonatas Faro and some girls in light blue bibs (pics 1+2). I had checked that episode before, but due to the brief scenes and very poor image quality, I haven’t noticed him. 1997 episode / clip 498 (season 4). Ep 499 should also show him but is blocked here and still needs to be checked.

Pic 3 showing a black teen girl in shortalls in ep 482. Pic 4 a young girl in a red, longer dress in ep 545. Pic 5 showing a music clip often shown (taken from ep 486). A girl in red bibs. Also in this or other clips a girl in an orange dress, skirtalls or similar, a girl in yellow and maybe more.

I will continue checking this series later. An update soon also on my pigtails blog.

Main entry rating 6 at

Country: USA
Who in bibs: girl ~18 ?
Available on DVD: yes
I own: no
Bib occurence: very low
Rating:  4/10
Rating: ****
Comment: I only noticed this unknown, older teen girl or young woman in dark blue shortalls at 15 minutes. Maybe Katie Mohler or Kendra Tucker or a supporting actress? Aka Trained to Fight. Completely on YouTube.

What else should I say?

Not bad, but very brief scene.

So rating 4-5 only.

There is a DVD but seems quite rare. Also on VHS.

Bib occurence: very low ?
Rating:  5/10 ?
Rating: *****
Comment: At least Annette Barlo in knee length, a bit baggy, light blue bibs. Colorful straps, bib at low position. Pic from ep. 2. At least 2 or 3 rather brief scenes. Also one of the granddads in ep 8.

Searching for the Soccer scenes of her younger film brother (ep. 4, but the black shorts are maybe not shiny), I found by coincidence this teen girl. I have briefly checked parts of around 25 episodes and only found bibs in this episode.

Great comedy series and very handsome boy (in the early episodes, longer bowlcut starting from ep 3) but for the brief bibs scenes, rating 5-6 for now only.

Also soon on my bedroom blog, rating 6.
