ATHENS — Greek comedy “Safe Sex,” directed by a well-known TV duo, this week became the country’s second most successful film ever after the “Titanic.”

The 150 million drachma ($450,000) movie raked in 1.2 million admissions after 13 weeks in release and has already brought in $7.5 million for producers Papandreou and private broadcaster Mega Channel.

“Safe Sex” was written and directed by TV scriptwriters Thanasis Papathanasiou and Michalis Reppas.

“We have organized two screenings during the Berlin Film Festival, and one is scheduled for next week in New York at Magno Studio,” said Elena Chatzialexandrou, executive producer, who is also currently negotiating international sales.

The film, which was released Oct. 20, is still playing on 15 screens across Greece. It peaked with 32 screens in early December.
