Daredevils: The Human Spider Returns

  • Published 7 months ago
  • Not Rated

As the name suggests, The Human Spider refers to an extraordinary climber, who is known to everyone as Alain Robert.

He is known as one of the world’s greatest ‘daredevils’ given to his eccentric attempts to scale the world’s tallest buildings and structures such as the Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, Berlin’s Debis Tower, and the Federation Tower in Moscow, Europe’s tallest building, without any safety equipment.

What is commendable is the fact that despite being Epileptic and fearing heights, he has achieved the near impossible which most people could not even dream of doing.

The documentary traces his life for over two years and includes behind-the-scene footages and unraveling interviews with Alain’s family to understand the motivations behind the life-threatening risks that he takes despite being a 47 years old and having three children. The documentary shows him taking upon 88 storey high Petronas Towers in Malaysia, with just his bare hands, some chalk dust and an appalling amount of nerve!
