Last two evenings and nights, we were in front of the tv watching during hours and hours 7 DVD’s of a fabulous documentary: Up Series. Even we are living since two years in UK, we never heard about this documentary until reading the post of Joanna Goddard about the last film of the series.
It was the first days of january when we saw the post and very impressed about the idea of the series and same day we bought the box of the six first films and the last one of the series, the 56 Up.
The documentary is about 14 British children from different cities and social circles. The director Michael Apted filmed the first one, Seven Up in 1964 when the children were seven years old and then they decided to keep filming them every seven years. During two evenings and night, we watched how this children growed up, where the life brought them, their happy and sad moments, they angers.
Even watching only the first black and white film where you can see the differences and their points of view, how they are expressing them selves was very, very impressive, but after watching the whole series and when it was the time to watch the last one, 56 Up which is released in 2012, we couldn’t wait to see where they are, how they are when they are 56.
We don’t want to talk more about them and ruin the magic of the documentary but we recommend indeed to everyone to watch this fabulous documentary. It’s just fabulous!
