The following week, he enjoyed his 25th birthday. All alleged were cancelled in replace for his performance at the Central Park for the kids.
The Walk movie is really a masterpiece. It is a totally immersive and realistic cinema experience. Director Zemeckis has done his job wonderfully in making the real events of Petit's living. Starting from the beginning up to the end of the movie, the 3D handed out mutual immense depth and numerous eye-popping instances. The cinematography is also wonderful. Both New York City and Paris in year 1970 have been played beautifully. When Petit finally take the climactic walk in between the WTC Twin Towers, the 3D certainly adds to the excitement of the happenings. If you have also the fear of heights or even if not; you will still be on the border of your bench, as Philippe embarks on the most hazardous feats ever tried in mankind history. You will be praying against hope that Philippe victoriously completes his life challenging walk. Gordon-Levitt is as outstanding like Philippe Petit. The reality that Gordon-Levitt gets the skill on the art of walking at tightrope and speaking in authentic French accent is really laudable. Philippe personally taught Gordon-Levitt about the proper and how to walk on the wire. He positively expected that the actor can walk on the wire after an 8 days workshop and the actor make it. Charlotte Le Bon is also as great as Annie and the rest of the cast was really as good as the person they are performing. Really, The Walk film is a must watch.
