Very good documentary. I had heard about this phenomnon. But I actually thought it was something that happened recently. Well the movie gives a very good description of how Philippe Petit in 1974 sneaked into the twin towers and put a wire between them and then wlaked between the to towers for 45 minutes.

It's all about a man who does what he dreams about. I makes you feel like you should do more to persue your own dreams. Kind of like Into The Wild did for me...

8 of 10 for moving experience in best documentary style.
