A potentially daft question

So I'm new to film. Loving it. And I saw a hideously expensively Leica online somewhere, and now I'm wondering is there a point in the price tag besides desirability?

For digital you're paying for the sensor, image processing, etc etc. "Computer things". But as long as you have decent glass, surely a film camera is sort of just a means of getting a shutter out of the way for the film, isn't it?

(not to knock beautiful cameras in anyway. I understand that and I would love a Leica! Just ruminating on the price tag justification for non-digital bodies.)
