  1. pluviosity's rating of the film Man on Wire

    amazing, mostly because even though the friendship has sort of broken, they all knew that the beautiful moment kept framed frozen forever.

  2. steeeeellaaaaa's rating of the film Man on Wire

  3. angeldromero's rating of the film Man on Wire

    Amazing documentary about one of those magical events that you can only find it fitting in a science fiction book but it really happened in 1974. This shows the preparation and execution of a unimaginable dream by a group of friends.

  4. K_Tarr's rating of the film Man on Wire

    We will likely never see an act as unique and profound as Petit's high wire walk ever again. His walk embodied dedication, discipline and passion to the utmost.

  5. Gabriele Mariotti's rating of the film Man on Wire

    An inspiring story, a tenacious character, a documentary that could've last 50 minutes and still work.

  8. T.h. Marvelsteins's rating of the film Man on Wire

    An exemplary documentary. I really warmed to him at first but then found his lack of loyalty and crassness disturbing. I guess it is easy to walk between the twin towers if your ego is bigger than both of them. Intrigued as much by the story that is left untold.

  9. P Teddy Sawyer's rating of the film Man on Wire

    An exquisite escapade..... "Magnificent men and women walking in thin air", I do that' .............. A superb recreation of an impossible achievement . With the bonus of copious archive material of the construction of the charismatic and titanic W.T.C. buildings their interiors and environs. A strange reality is created in this BBC film, posing the questions, what is reality,?what is conspiracy?what have I seen?

  11. kris's rating of the film Man on Wire

    an amazing act of courage and confidence, which his friends at the time , helped him achieve.

  12. perrieraddict's rating of the film Man on Wire

    Magical and awe-inspiring, from Philippe's initial epiphany in the most mundane of places (a dentist's waiting room) through to the charm and persistence that saw him amass a gang of friends and accomplices who helped him nail the practicalities that brought his poetic vision to life.

  13. DanB3000's rating of the film Man on Wire

    A beautiful documentary, right down to the last heartbreaking scene. Haven't seen the movie adaptation, I can't really see the point in doing so as the real thing is flawless.

  14. somerseson's rating of the film Man on Wire

    I was anticipating a slight dislike for this film but it never materialised. It's a corker and it is a relatively balanced and fair portrayal of a simpler time.

  15. Alice Rizzo's rating of the film Man on Wire

    Madness also pushes to do incredible things.

  16. Crina Cătălina's rating of the film Man on Wire

    (3.5) Seeing this only after its more recent remake (The Walk), I realize how different it is in telling the same inspiring story of redefining limits. Sure, it wouldn't be as impressive on a big screen, with the POV shots immersing you into the high-wire walking experience, but you get to see actual footage of those involved (although not the walk per se - bummer!). Poetic at times, with graciously selected music.

  17. Bart Dykstra's rating of the film Man on Wire

    Stunning storytelling. There's no why for watching this, just watch.

  18. RickDeck's rating of the film Man on Wire

    La historia del hombre (funelista) que caminó sobre un cable entre las hoy desaparecidas Torres Gemelas del WTC en Nueva York en el año 1974.

  19. Joaquín Font's rating of the film Man on Wire

    Ese tipo es uno de esos hombres que son hermosos porque están locos. Morir en el ejercicio de tu pasión, ludere sua coria.

  20. Sin título.'s rating of the film Man on Wire

    Inspiradora, negligente y llena de ese sentimiento legítimo de motivación para lograr aquello que se desea. (20140619)

  22. Àlex Frias Haro's rating of the film Man on Wire

    Narrado en la forma de una heist movie, Man on Wire es un emocionante y visualmente estilizado recuento sobre cómo el francés Phillipe Petite llevó a cabo un acto desafiante y suicida, en 1974: cruzar las Torres Gemelas sobre la cuerda floja.

  23. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Man on Wire

    Completely enjoyable documentary about Philippe Petit's passion (and madness) to perform a wire act between the tallest buildings at the time. Beautifully shot with home video, black and white, stills and news report footage. What engrosses the viewer is if they'll actually pull it off with the wire setup and security enforcement at the World Trade Centre. Goes to show that the impossible is possible after all.

  24. Daniel Grudsky's rating of the film Man on Wire

    Única e irrepetible, por lejos mejor que la película actual basada en estos increíbles hechos reales.
