An overplayed character comedy triggered by a crazy man and a robber meeting in a deserted location, “In Good Company” looks destined purely for ethnic spots where Greek-speaking viewers will better appreciate the verbal humor. Film reps a curious Hellenic submission for the Foreign Language Oscar in the light of other fare the past year, such as “Risotto,” “One Day in August” or “The Cistern,” which speak more to international auds.

A madman and a thief have been let out on a special five-day leave and meet when their cars crash in the countryside. In fact, each has people following him for defined purposes: the prisoner has two cops on his tail to find where he’s stashed his stolen money, and the weirdo has a doctor and his assistant researching his behavior. Performances are broad-to-crazed, and tech credits fine in the sunny locations. Original Greek title means “One & One.”
