63 Up

Director Michael Apted revisits the same group of British-born adults after a 7 year wait. The subjects are interviewed as to the changes that have occurred in their lives during the last seven years.

"If you're coming to the series cold, there's enough filmed background to get you up to speed. And if you've become hooked at some point over the years, 63 Up makes for essential viewing." - National Post

"Michael Apted's Up series, which returns every seven years to interview the same group of subjects and see how life is going, long ago established itself as a humanist treasure.

"Now back to look at its diverse group of Brits at age 63, the project is settling into a grandfatherly comfort. Gone are the days when the course of someone's life was likely to shift in completely unpredictable ways. Though fortunes can, of course, still shift, the friends we've made here are mostly settled. Now, inevitably, health and mortality become the main source of drama.

"Self-referentiality plays an increasing role. Apted makes a point of asking each interviewee about the series' initial premise — that a person's character is mostly set by the age of 7. Most seem to agree that there's a fair bit of truth in the idea; shown footage of themselves at 7 or 14 or 21, they see the people they are today.

"Cherish 63 Up, like you cherish life. 4/4 stars" - Globe and Mail
