Audience Reviews for 7 Up!
Even if it embraces a too deterministic view of society by presuming it can predict a child's future just from their social class, this is a fascinating film (and experiment) that reveals so much about the multiple contrasting ways those seven-year-old kids perceive the world around them.
I found it interesting how smart these kids are. The whole series is a great idea, I wish I could find more of them
The first of the greatest documentary series ever made, filming literally the lives of a group of child, ever seven years of their life. "There aren't many pieces of work, especially in film, that have the patience or the longevity or the time to honor the drama of ordinary life; and after all, the drama of what we all have to go through ? children, jobs, marriage, the things that touch us ? is the big drama of life, far more so than the drama of movies and television.? Quote: the director Michael Apted
