Won the Oscar for Best Documentary and the BAFTA for Best British Film in 2009.

This documentary incorporates Petit's footage to show the numerous extraordinary challenges he faced in completing the artistic crime of the century. ★★★★★ "James Marsh's documentary about this sublime piece of audacity does full justice to Petit's vision" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
