Your input is not quoted or unqouted. If you need to use url quoting in 
names, you must use this syntax to have a nicer name:
	[IMDB:Napoleon%20Dynamite Napoleon Dynamite]

If the remote wiki run MoinMoin MediaWiki (maybe others too), you can 
use this simpler syntax:
	IMDB:Napoleon_Dynamite

Which rendered as _ but much readable then %20 that meant to be read by 
a machine.

Check HelpOnLinking page for more info.
