1974. 1350 feet up. The artistic crime of the century.
On August 7th 1974, French tightrope walker Philippe Petit stepped out on a high wire, illegally rigged between New York's World Trade Center twin towers, then the world's tallest buildings. After nearly an hour of performing on the wire, 1,350 feet above the sidewalks of Manhattan, he was arrested. This fun and spellbinding documentary chronicles Philippe Petit's "highest" achievement.

La historia es interesante sin embargo resulta ser lo más irrelevante del documental si no estás inclinado por el tema que lo rodea (equilibrismo) pero la ejecución de éste y todo lo que trata de decir lo hacen verdaderamente emocionante y en términos generales muy inspirador.

Great documentary about a guy suffering from an acute iron aggregation in his testicles.
