Phillippe Petit's incredible story was the inspiration for the new movie THE WALK. On August 7th 1974, a vivacious young Frenchman named Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between New York World Trade Center's twin towers. After nearly an hour dancing on the wire, he was arrested, taken for psychological evaluation, and brought to jail before finally being released. This documentary incorporates Petit's footage to show the numerous extraordinary challenges he faced in completing the artistic crime of the century.

    100%??? Must be the same person using pseudonyms to write these reviews. Schmaltzy. 30 minutes into a drab, unengaging story and I'm thinking, "There's got to be a plot twist coming" It never came. Could have developed a musical score for this one with one note. It was inane, melancholy, drug-stupored eulogizing of a hedonist from beginning to end. Save your $10.
  • Truly Phenomenal and Exhilarating!

    By The Film Advisor
    "Man on a wire" is most likely the best Documentary film you will ever experience and one of the most phenomenal true stories you'll ever hear! In the film, Philippe Petit, tight rope walker between the WTC Towers in the 1970's, shows you his ground breaking story with a strong presence and beyond human point of view! The Film presents a solid amount of courage and beauty through out. Of course their is more to say of this film but it would spoil the film. "Man On Wire" is highly recommended to those of interest and those who'd like to learn more!

    This movie shows the power of one man discovering and following his life's passion. Watching the movie is inspiring even if you could care less about wire walking. May we all discover our heat's passion.
