I have recently read:
I never saw this movie (instead of "I have never seen this movie")
I believe that the Present Perfect is usually used with the adverb "never" because the event can still happen in the present. Example: I have never talked to my biological father (exception: I never talked to my biological father and I found out today that he is dead). Is that correct?
In which context the sentence in question could be correct with the Simple Past?
