Notes & Reviews:

Soundtrack to the award-winning documentary featuring music composed by Michael Nyman. The documentary film picked up two awards in two categories at the world's hippest film festival, Sundance 2008. The film tells the story of French daredevil Philippe Petit's daring plan to walk the high-wire between New York's Twin Towers in 1974. Film-maker James Marsh brilliantly matches his images to the hypnotic and propulsive music of English minimalist composer Michael Nyman, including pieces from Nyman's masterpiece, La traversée de Paris, and his collaborations with Peter Greenaway. It's a sublime choice that lifts Man on Wire to rare movie-watching giddiness. The film scooped both the World Cinema Audience Award and Documentary & World Cinema Jury Prize at this year's festival.
