The two Roberts are great. Charles Denner is wonderful(as he always is) as the fussy, abrasive, cab-driver who is still determined to find a woman even if he is already 48 and having very little luck. In one scene he is asked by the man who runs the computer dating service if he is having regular sex. He simply answers, that if he was, he wouldn't be there. The other Robert (Villeret)is the shy naive one who barely speaks above a whisper, but through his new found friendship with the cab-driver Robert, comes out of his shell. He is the politest man you ever met. When cab-driver Robert introduces him to his mother, he greets her with a polite nod and a "madame". Then he is shown a picture of cab-driver Robert's dead father, to which he nods politely and says "Monsieur". The sequence when the boys and all the computer dating clients go to Waterloo for a "get to know someone" trip is very, very funny. I won't spoil it by saying what happens, I'll just suggest that you rent this very touching and funny film and just enjoy.
