Man on Wire movie from 2008 by James Marsh

Man on Wire is a documentarie movie from 2008 about a French guy, Philippe Petits. He is a wireman walker. Since his childhood he loved to climb. One day he decided to learn how to walk on wires on his garden. He practised for hours to pursue his dream. He first tried crossing on a wire the Notre Dame towers, being arrested as a consequence and then Sidney. But the most challenging experience was to come: Crossing the World Trade Centre twin towers on a wire set by him and his accomplices on the 7th/08/1974. He dreamed of it even before the towers hadn't been built. Phillipe's story is told by his colleagues,ex girlfriend and himself. He has sucha a passion and loves what he does in such a way that becomes contagious. I truly recommend this movie if you want to share a moment of beauty, a historic moment: Noone will be ever be able to achieve what he achieved..
