This movie
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3786474/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1
is not listed under it's original title as per the title format rules.

It has only been released in Japan but the IMDB entry refers to the title of the US novel it was based upon.

It doesn't have an English release.

The movie title is actually 'Ai o Tsumu Hito'

Alison: The official title of this film in IMDb is Ai wo tsumu hito (2015).  If you are seeing the film listed as The Pearls of the Stone Man, that's the English title which is being used as a secondary title, not the official IMDb title.

I don't know what the exact romanization should be (as in "wo" vs. "o"), but IMDb prefers the Revised Hepburn romanization. https://contribute.imdb.com/updates/guide/asian
Also, other than the first word of the title and proper names, the words in the Japanese title should not be capitalized.

If the title Ai wo tsumo hito is incorrect by those standards, please feel free to submit a Title Correction (to do that, go to the film's page, click "Edit page", and on the next screen, on the Title Correction line, select "Add correction" and click "Continue", then proceed from there).

I hope this helps.

Ok Thanks.
It wasn't clear to me that the secondary title could be used as the 'headline' title.
