I don't think that there's much to add that hasn't already been said. I first saw this movie when I was about 7 and never forgot it. I recently was lucky enough to see it again, nearly 35 years later and still marveled at it's emotional depth and breadth. I was amazed at how well I remembered details, especially the scene where he gets frusrated and begins to strike himself. It's amazing that he not only brilliantly played the character without dialogue, but he also wrote the movie and the music. How much talent can one person have? A pity it's not available on VHS or DVD.
