Are they at middle age, now 35 years old??
17 February 2006 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

In a sense it is remarkable that over the 28 years up to this film, all of the original subjects are still alive.

I still wonder if way back then, Michael Apted had this great vision for, or if he just stumbled upon, this superb study of human nature and how humans grow up. The whole series has been a fascination for me. Now my public library has the whole DVD series, 6 films on 5 discs, and right now it is in my viewing room. Having seen "42 UP" a few years ago, the DVD series has given me the opportunity to see all of them. What a fine series it is. Now I want to see "49 UP"!!

At 35 each of the subjects are well into their lives and it is fascinating to see into how many directions they have gone. And, in a real sense, all of them are successful, when we define success as finding fulfillment in where you are and in what you do. Neil is the only possible exception, but Neil is bright and, although he thinks he may be slowly going mad, he accurately sizes up the whole mad world around all of us. So, from my point of view, even Neil is successful.
