  • "Summary: A look at the high-wire walk made by Philippe Petit in 1974 between the World Trade Center's Twin Towers in New York City, and how it is still considered one of history's most artistic crimes."
  • "Philippe Petit, appena bambino, sviluppa una passione per l'equilibrismo, una tensione innata e irrefrenabile a tirare corde tra alberi e case e camminarci sopra, sempre più in alto. A nove anni legge su una rivista del progetto delle Twin Towers di New York e decide: "Io camminerò sospeso tra quelle due meravigliose torri...". Negli anni raduna attorno a sè un manipolo di pazzi sognatori che lo assecondano in tutto e lo aiutano a completare il suo destino. Finchè in una mattina d'agosto del 1974 Petit, solo, cammina nel cielo a quattrocento metri di altezza."@it
  • "In un luminoso mattino d'estate del 1974, il funambolo Philippe Petit camminò per più di un'ora lungo un cavo d'acciaio steso tra i due grattacieli più alti del mondo, le Torri Gemelle di New York, simbolo del progresso e del rinnovato ottimismo occidentale. Man on Wire è la storia di questa avventura surreale, progettata da un manipolo di eroici sognatori, figli del loro tempo. Attraverso il materiale girato durante la preparazione dell'intricato piano che li porterà in cima ai palazzi, il film, che ha letteralmente dominato nel panorama documentario dei migliori festival della stagione, racconta una parabola epica, una folle utopia al confine tra il gioco prodigioso, l'atto politico e la provocazione artistica. (Mymovies)."

  • "1974, 1350 feet up. The artistic crime of the century. A maverick, a dreamer, an artist: Philippe Petit is all of these things and more. On a slightly windy day in the summer of 1974, a lone figure appeared high above the heads of the people of Manhattan, balancing perfectly on a high wire strung between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. For almost an hour, the performer danced on the wire, ignoring the pleas from police to get down, simply rejoicing in his artistic expression. This "coup" marked the culmination of several months of planning, during which Petit and his rag-tag bunch of conspirators would become implicated in a feat considered "the artistic crime of the century". MAN ON WIRE is a spectacle of human achievement, tenacity and sheer amazement, in which archival footage and dramatic re-enactment are used to tell the story of Petit and his rebellious team of artistic innovators.--Kanopy."

  • ""On 7th August 1974, a young Frenchman named Philippe Petit stepped out on a wire illegally rigged between the world's tallest buildings at the time, New York City's Twin Towers. Following six and a half years of dreaming of the Twin Towers, Petit spent eight months in New York City planning the execution of the coup. Though aided by a team of friends and accomplices, Petit was faced with numerous extraordinary challenges along the way: he had to find a way to bypass the World Trade Centre's security, smuggle the heavy steel cable and rigging equipment into the towers, then pass the wire between the two rooftops and anchor the wire at each end. Ladened with cameras, forged ID cards and sheer determination the crew behind this amazing tight rope stunt managed to pull off a world record never before seen and likely never to be seen again. With testimony from Philippe Petit himself, Man on Wire tells the story of his remarkable achievement, known as "the artistic crime of the century, with true poignancy and suspense." -- Website."
