Man on Wire is such an inspiring and magical documentary! When I first heard of this story I was blown away at the risks this guy took to fulfill his passion and dreams. But I also thought there is no way this guy could survive this final challenge! BUT... When the movie started they had Philippe (the "rope dancer" they called him) in an interview - present day! He is alive! This crazy nut did it! And to hear how he did it is absolutely amazing!
"Its so simple that life should be lived on the edge of life. You have to exercise rebellion. To refuse to temper yourself to rules, to refuse your own sucess, to refuse to repeat yourself to see everyday, every year, every idea as a true challenge. And then you are going to live your life on the tight rope." - Philippe Petit
