Film of the year

It’s about a guy who wants to walk on a wire across the twin towers

I had a strange experience this year. I had to learn to walk again. You know how you think you know how it works but in fact you couldn’t describe it because it’s like breathing, you never really think about it. Well, when the physio told me, I refused to believe him. Nope, Sir. I don’t walk like this. Never have, never will.

When you listen to this guy, nothing seems impossible.

And then I started start thinking of the stories my parents told me about how I was so eager to walk when I was like 10 months old and how I kept falling but kept trying again and again until the day I made it and I walked across that living room.

The man on wire is walking with grace in the sky of New York now. When he’s done –he knows it already – his life will never be the same. He’ll lose his friends and he’ll lose his fiancée. Then the towers will go too. And soon, there will be nothing left but his memories.

I am walking to the Christmas tree and I see that green bike and it is everything I ever wanted.
I am walking a girl home, she must be 15 and she is beautiful, and the walk seems so short I feel like I’ll never have the time to take her hand.
I am walking back home in the early morning, my first walk of shame.
I am walking along this long corridor before my oral exam, my heart pounding because the job of my dream seems so close and so far at the same time.
I am walking into a bar and I meet Madame Red.
I am walking with her in so many cities and so many countries.

And so his friends are crying and his fiancée too. They’re crying because what he did, what they did, was so perfect and beautiful. And they’re crying because where he’s going now he thinks he doesn’t need them anymore

And then, one day, I walked again. One of the most natural, simple things I’ve ever done.

And then one day, they made a film about it. One of the most wonderful films I’ve ever seen.
