I already use jurabib and , unfortunately, it doesn't exactly what I

"citefull=first" results in the display of the complete filmography 
entry, including director and country which I both don't want. After 
more digging and tweaking of jurabib.bst I managed that \citetitleonly 
gives me "Full title (year)". This is already quite nice, unfortunately 
I still don't know how I can force it to only display the short title 
and no year for every additional quoatation.

By default \citetitleonly gives the short title (it only gives me the 
full title now because I tweaked jurabib.bst). So I though I could use 
"citefull=first" and I tried to tweak it so that it does display what I 
want at the first time. But I failed. As I said, I'm not a programmer, 
so when I tweak the .bst file I only have a very limited understanding 
of what I'm doing. ;) I think "citefull=first" just automatically takes 
the complete bibliography entry and puts it in the text, so I can't 
alter this from the .bst file.

So, I'm still searching…
