The old Philippe Petit on wire

The old Philippe Petit on wire

走鋼索的人在鋼索上找尋夢想,不怕隨時可能因為失足而魂斷高空的危險。當Philippe在連著雙子大廈的鋼索上出現時如同在雲上行走,觀眾看得目瞪口呆,Philippe卻一副悠然自得的樣子,臉上掛著自信的笑容。“If I die, what a beautiful death, to die in the exercise of your passion.” 感謝Philippe,他的熱誠與勇氣,讓這世界擁有這麼一個moment,一個神奇的moment。

Philippe Petit: To me, it’s really so simple, that life should be lived on the edge. You have to exercise rebellion. To refuse to tape yourself to the rules, to refuse your own success, to refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, every idea as a true challenge. Then you will live your life on the tightrope.

發人深省。

  1. 即使事隔經年,談起當年籌備往兩座世貿行的事情,他仍然兩眼發亮!可見那份興奮沒有因歲月而退減。

    同樣令人深思的是︰”why?” 瘋狂的行徑,需要理由嗎?

    而最後,壯舉完成了,過程中朋友和女友一直在旁支持,但為何成事之後,卻變了?

    1. 我覺得他是有理由的瘋狂, 就是那份要征服的執著與沉迷.
      成事後大家各走各路, 大概因為一舉成名後的philippe和他們最初追隨的philippe不同了, 也許他們意識到那份年少輕狂在WTC的鋼索上是時候要到此為止了.

  2. 對,但是那份拿性命作賭注的執迷與狂熱,非一般人能理解。
    philippe,真係好正!

    還是那一百零四層樓,用盡了大家的瘋狂?和情感?
