Why is it translated as 'have seen' and not 'I saw'?

Bonjour Judith,

This may be because there is no time marker to indicate that the action is completely over.

J'ai vu ce film six fois. = I have seen this movie six times.

J'ai vu ce film six fois, l'année dernière. = I saw this movie six times last year.

I think both are accepted

Isn't it possible to say "j'ai vu six fois ce film". Different intonation and emphasis?
