Would you please help me with keyword search no results problem ?

https://filmfind.co/q/single-superwoman-protagonist-movie-my-name-is-m-maybe/

Please help me to understand why and how of: When I search just for keywords casino, desert and mentor at Keywords or Adwanced Search keyword section, I do simply get No Results instead of the movie below as mentioned below.


“My Name Is Modesty: A Modesty Blaise Adventure” (2004)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0347591/ IMDb 4.5/10

According to the movie’s IMDb keywords, there is casino, desert and mentor in this movie.

If
you think that this is the movie you are looking for, then please select my answer as Best Answer by clicking on the “Select” button.

I get exactly that movie when I keyword search using the box atop nearly every IMDb page, selecting Keyword, enter casine, then editing the url to include desert & mentor:
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=casino,desert,mentor

Same if I start with Advanced Title Search, enter casino in the keyword box, then edit the url to include the others.

I found out that I was m'stakenly typing dots instead of original commas.

Both of your links work for me, but only Advanced Title Search produces same URL as yours.
Thus quick Keyworkd search produces a different URL  of:
https://www.imdb.com/find?s=kw&q=desert&ref_=nv_sr_sm
Comma method does notwork for this URL.
I don`t know the reason for this different URL but anyways I can use your comma method  directly for Advanced Tittle search.

Thank you for the tips, because I had never succeeded in before from "out of the box" search options.

Have a nice day.

Ah, I see that I skipped describing a step.
Certainly 
https://www.imdb.com/find?s=kw&q=desert&ref_=nv_sr_sm
will not take extra keyword in the URL, because this is a search for keywords, not a search for titles.
The step I omitted was that I clicked on the keyword result itself, to get the list of titles, and THEN added the 2 extra keywords.
So from the list above, click on the desert (4281 titles), then add casino and mentor.
https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=desert,casino,mentor
