When you do an advanced search, it only matches the original title, rather than alternates. So, if you do an advanced search for "dark blue world" it returns no results wheras a simple search returns the 2001 film.

This might be by design. I'll let our technical staff know about it so the can look into it.

Same here, affects foreign language films particularly.
E.g. "Once upon a Time in Anatolia" found in a simple search, not found in advanced search with no qualifying criteria, so search should catch all ?
Original name "Bir zamanlar Anadolu'da" works for both

I submit. The search engine is a dissaster! I'm tryng to find "Mary had a little something"....No way to find it! It's a well known movie. How is this possible?

I agree that this limitation in the "Advanced Title Search" is a major issue, and a strange one, since the "normal" search behaves in a different (and better) way.

Advanced Title Search is unusable as it does not search international or alternative titles like the regular search does
