Truly moving, an amazing work - what a story! I highly recommend it - despite being an "art" movie, it is a piece of personal history, an amazing, never to be repeated feat.

Great intense and interesting movie. The story will keep you glued to your chair. Slow in some parts, but it is neededto tell the story. Great service by Amazon UK to the US.

Beautifully made and thoughtful, MoW is a really classy piece. The characters are odd and interesting, the story about exactly how the whole thing was set up drags you along in a fairly tense and exciting way. There's a fantastic mix between the human comedy of the people around the event being fooled and made to gawp in disbelief.. up against some nicely done, 'what is life about' deep stuff.

But.. not 5 stars because, inexplicably, there's no footage of the actual event which is a real anti climax.. plus the soundtrack is rubbish.. old Nyman plinky plonks from other films and cliched French 'mood music'.. ie Saint Saens.

This film will give you a new lease on life.It's told as if Petit is about to carry off a heist...the end result will leave you breathless and on the edge of your seat.

A truly amazing feat, which almost seems too incredible to be true. Fascinating documentary, about a bonkers idea made real. Not one for people who fear heights!

A great documentary of a story told in a logical way with superb archive footage from the period. The music score is outstanding.

Manages to raise excitement and tension very succesfully. Includes many "flashbacks" which are well made. Brave act!

An excellent film overall, but the documentary style wears a bit thin on a full length feature. Well worth buying, though.
