I used imdb's title, unless "sīmbata" is wrong?

I was just posting a clarifying message while the title of the movie was changed:

The imdb link is: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062702/

The title however is more correct in my opinion like it's listed now "Balul de Sāmbătă seara" (The ball of Saturday evening).

In imdb it's listed with the word "sīmbata", but it is not correct because it doesn't have all the diacritics and meanwhile (since 1990 I think) Romanian language changed the rule regarding letters ā and ī, which are the same sound in fact. Before '90 only the letter ī was used, including in the middle of the words (and letter ā wasn't used at all I think), now the letter ā is used in the middle of the words and the letter ī only as the first or the last letter of a word.

The title as it is in the image is the correct one, with Sāmbătă capitalized as it is written in the language.

...Okay thanks (Wiki explanation here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romanian_alphabet#.C3.8E_versus_.C3.82)

Ok, changed. "sīmbata" as alternative title then.

IMDB uses basic latin-1 character set, which does not include ă
IMCDb uses the same actually (I should switch to unicode), so here the ă is stored as HTML entity in the database, which is not very good for title searches as I said several times (we should stick to latin-1 characters like IMDB)
