I think Maciej is right, but I wonder how common it will be for the description
of the multimedia (audio/video) to be significantly different from the
description of the poster.  I guess it's possible that the poster conveys
*additional* information over and above what the movie contains, but I would
have thought this was an unlikely case, and perhaps even one that we don't need
to encourage.

I guess I am more keen on descriptive and transcriptive text for the movie, and
once we have that cleanly done, then ask the question "do we need it *as well*
for the poster?"
