The man that walked in the clouds

Just saw the documentary 'Man On Wire' about the tight rope walker Phillippe Petit, who walked 412 metres above the ground in 1974 when he walked on a wire between the two World Trade Center towers in New York. What a magnificent thing to do! The documentary took my breath away in telling the story of how this came to life, told by the man himself and his charming French friends. If you have the chance, see it! (It's shown tonight on DR2, 23.50)

Sjovt! Jeg snakkede faktisk om den dokumentar sammen med en veninde her for nogle dage siden. Den er vild fascinerende! Utroligt at der findes mennesker på denne jorden, der tør (og kan!) udføre sådan nogle ekstreme ting. wwauuuuw.

Virkelig fascinerende! Jeg fik højdeskræk af bare at kigge på billederne - man fatter ikke, at han ikke falder. Kræver godtnok god koncentration og balance...
