WW2 Drama - Coming of Age Story - Kids / Teenagers - Possibly a British / Scottish film

Saw a movie on Bravo TV channel a while ago that seemed to be about children in the midst of WW2, dealing with puberty and sexual awakening. Film appeared to star British actors, so maybe a British film. Video quality appeared pretty good and suggested the film was shot somewhere around 1990s or 2000s.

Scenes in the film include: (a) Mother waking up her daughter from bed as a siren goes off signaling an air raid. Mother asks her daughter what she's been doing (in reference to the daughter not wearing her PJs). I believe the mother dies during the raid. (b) Another scene in which a boy and a girl spy on their parents(?) making love in the bedroom. Boy tells the girl he's already done it. Girls doesn't believe him and asks who it was and the boy mentions one of their friends. (c) Another scene where a teenage boy walks in on girls in a changing room while they're in their underwear. They spot him spying on them, crowd around him and start teasing.

I saw snippets of the film in between commercials, but most of it seemed to be about kids growing up in a European town during WW2. I can't remember which country it was, exactly. At some point there were a lot of blond/blue eyed people, so I thought perhaps Germany. On the other hand, all of the actors appeared to be British / Scottish.

Hope and Glory (1987)  ?

Bill Rohan, a young boy living on the outskirts of London experiences the exhilaration of World War II, as seen through the eyes of director John Boorman, who also wrote and produced the autobiographical film. During this period, Bill learns about sex, death, love, hypocrisy, and the faults of adults as he prowls the ruins of bombed houses on Rosehill Avenue. His childlike father is off chasing patriotic dreams of glory from behind a military clerk's typewriter; his teenage sister runs wild; his mother can't cope; and everything in the end will eventually turn out all right
@VHS_Lives : Bravo America (I am in US). And I want to say that I saw it perhaps 6 or so years ago.
@ebyandsmartie: Wow. Yes. That is the one. You win all of the Internets! Spent four hours in IMDB trying to find it. IMDB doesn't have it marked with "children" keyword, which is what I was searching for in combination with "war." I probably looked through every WW2 film but this one.

Such a British movie. A lot funnier than I remember it.

Seriously, thanks a lot!
