            With Ubuntu 13.10 the report are not displayed in UTF-8. If I change the code to UTF-8 all work fine. But maybe that could be defined in the header.

            Another think, it will be possible that the program take a picture on the directory, if they not found one at imdb. I always have one on the directory.

            And my last wish. Could be possible to filter / sort about country/language production.

            Anyway, Thanks for the project.

            IMDB seems to have changed their layout a bit. Plot's were not downloaded by smoviecat.
            In file change the line that says:
            my $plot = _get_info(shift, "plot");
            my $plot = _get_info(shift, "plot","h5","/div");
            to get it working again.
