Both are correct but are used in different situations.
"I saw the film" is an action completed in the past.
"I have seen the film" is an action in the past with relevance to the present. [present perfect]
If you say: "Let's watch Ben Hur" and I answer "I have seen that film", it means that I don't need to see it again now, because the effect of seeing it in the past has lasted to the present.
But I added your alternative as a translation from Esperanto:)
