Or if the price dropped by a few pounds.

Oh I think the common price is fine, and I'm not moaning the films are billed under their German titles, I just wonder if it would aid consumers if they were sold under their English titles.

Perpetuating clumsy old titles that aren't literal translations of the original German title (but a whim of an earlier English/American distributor) is not particularly clever, which is why we didn't do it.
