Let’s all take a moment to remember how absolutely terrifying this children’s movie was.
Every one of us stood alone, and the sooner a man realized that all the better for him. It mattered little if one was mute; people did not understand one another anyway. They collided with or charmed one another, hugged or trampled one another, but everyone knew only himself. […] Like the mountain peaks around us, we looked at one another, separated by valleys, too high to stay unnoticed, too low to touch the heavens.
