Juste la fin du monde (2016)

Distributors:
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Croatia)
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Croatia)
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Croatia)
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Croatia)
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Croatia)

I guess this contribution was intended to look like this:

Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Bosnia and Herzegovina)       
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Croatia)        
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Montenegro)        
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Serbia)       
Discovery Film & Video Distribution (2016) (Slovenia)

Because Discovery Film & Video Distribution is a Croatian company IMDb disregards the four other regions.


Similar case with Tom of Finland (2017). To my knowledge Danish company Mis. Label [dk] got all Scandinavian DVD and Blu-ray distribution rights.

So in order to bypass this conflict of region and distribution company's home country I had to invent a Finnish company Mis. Label [fi]:

Mis. Label (2017) (Finland) (Blu-ray) (DVD)

This is a reference view bug, it has been reported before. It does not appear on the company credits page:

OK. But that doesn't help particularly. Nearly all IMDb users check the reference view when looking for information. Especially non-registered users. And that's all that matters. People don't have time nor the patience to dig deeper. Some don't even have means to do so.

No, reference view only appears if you have enabled it in your account settings.

Kari,

Default views are setup by the user, so they may differ from one user to the other...

Peter & Vincent are correct; reference view is only used by a small number of customers. 

This is a known bug but unfortunately due to usage, there's no guarantee of a quick fix, sorry.

Yes. The setups we are able to create ourselves or if we are not able then given by someone else. Those default views. If the information is not there straightway very few bothers to do extra research.
