The Walk : A Movie Review

By Dissanayake D M Dimendri Sanduni
This is a movie I recently watched with my family and we were all absolutely mesmerized . “ The Walk ” is a movie based on a true story about a French high-wire artist named Philippe Petit who illegally walked between – what were – the Twin Towers in the New York City World Trade Center . This hair-raising movie is directed by Robert Zemeckis and was released in
2015 by TriStar Pictures . Petit is determined to walk across the Twin Towers despite the consequences of this act being illegal and the high possibility of death . Determination , strength , and courage are just a few of the lessons one can expect to discover from this incredible movie .
Philippe had an interest in wire walking since he was a young boy ; yet , no one took him seriously . As a grown man , Philippe continued to be passionate about wire-walking , and even attempted to walk on a wire at the circus when nobody was there . However , someone spotted him . It was Papa Rudy , the circus owner who asked Philippe to leave . Later on with much persuasion , Papa Rudy agreed to teach Philippe the art of wire-walking under the condition that he was paid . Philippe then left his parents to pursue his dream of wire-walking . Along his way , he met Annie who was singing on the street , and evidently fell in love with her ! Next , Philippe met Jean-Louis , a photographer and a skillful archer , and eventually became the one to help Philippe ‘ shoot ’ the wire from one twin tower to the other . As a team , all three of them set up for their first act , which was at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris .
