Default Foreign titles

I need some clarification on a rule:

The American Release Title takes precedence
"...If the title was not released in the U.S., then the International English language title is the title. Ultimately, it must be the English translated title. If the film has been released elsewhere under the original title, then the original language title follows the English translated title in parentheses.
Exception: There is no different American release title or International English language title For some foreign movie titles, there is no other title, or there is no obvious English Translation of the title, or the original is so internationally famous that everyone knows what it is. In that case, the original language title is allowed."
I'm wondering how to apply it Die Scheinheiligen. According to IMDb, there is no English title. I'm told it translates into "The Hypocrites." The rule is sort of ambiguous. Should the title be amended?
"Me fail English? That's unpossible!"
