The more-than-seven ages of man (and woman)

William Shakespeare reduced the ages of man to a mere seven, in the play “As You Like It“. In this video, actor Benedict Cumberbatch presents that argument:

In contrast, the maker of the video below went for a less literarily — but more mathematically — classical approach to age, assigning a different age for each year of a person’s lifespan. The filmmaker explains:

In October 2011 I started documenting people in the city of Amsterdam, approaching them in the street and asking them to say their age in front of the camera. My aim was to ‘collect’ a group of 100 people, from age 0 to 100.
