The documentary is being touted as truly enthralling, and capturing imaginations of those who see it.

The documentary follows Philippe Petit, with some amazing images. The peak of the documentary is when Petit is at the top of the Twin Towers of thw World Trade Center, trying to walk across on a cable.

The event took place on August 7, 1974 as hundreds watched from the ground as Petit managed to walk back and forth on the cable.

During the walk, he even was seen lying down and kneeling on the cabe as well.

The cable was suspended between the Twin Towers, which stood 110-stories up.

His walk lasted for a period of 45-minutes, and lit up the faces of all who watched.

The documentary follows how the wire walk was carried out,a s well as how Petit actually managed to get all of the necessary equipment into the tower.

Critics seem in agreement that Man on Wire is not one to miss.
