wonderful film, lots of messages, like humility, greed, arrogance, honesty, and a dose of sobriety over a very touching film - also one could include lost love as well.

Like all great movies, they make you, think, and reflect. Robertson's performance is an academy award winning performance. Excellent movie with a sad ending. Four stars + for sure.

If for no other reason, watch this for the Ravi Shankar score and the psychedelic freak-out scene where Cliff Robertson drives a motorcycle through a giant photograph of himself. Heavy stuff.

Cliff Roberson has the role of a lifetime in the movie "Charly". He plays a "cognitive deficient" person. In the hands of Roberson this man has dignity and potential. He is truly a wonderful person, but few get to know him. The movie is truly beautiful in its message that we should treat all people with respect. Five Stars for a wonderful performance by Cliff Robertson.
P.S. Robertson got an Oscar for his performance.
