"Robert et Robert" (1978) directed by Claude Lelouch is a brilliant film about two lonely and completely different men who met at the a computer dating service. Jacques Villeret is a very shy over-weighed young man who is studying to become a policeman. Charles Denner is a nervous and "difficult" cab driver. Both men are dominated by their strong willed mothers and both are certainly not very successful in finding girls. In this bittersweet tale, Villeret's and Denner's characters are real and touching as two losers whose friendship and compassion help them eventually to fight loneliness and insecurity. Absolutely charming film masterfully shot by Lelouch with great performances from two main characters and the rest of the cast. Music is written by Francis Lai (Un homme et une femme (1966) ... aka A Man and a Woman).
