Man on Wire
Dir. James Marsh
A drama documentary
94 mins/cert 12A

On August 7th 1974, a young Frenchman called Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire suspended between New York's twin towers, then the world’s tallest buildings. After an hour dancing on the wire, with no safety net or harness, he was arrested and thrown into an underground prison. Until that moment no one but Petit and his team of accomplices, who had spent months planning their illegal 'coup' (as they referred to it amongst themselves) knew anything about it.
What is now termed “the artistic crime of the century” is brought to life with stunning photography, real interviews and nail-biting drama.

"The sheer insanity of the idea is what makes this terrific film so gripping….Truly extraordinary"
The Times
