Notes: 
This DVD has initially been released as a supplement of the DiViDi magazine 11/2002. According to an article in the said magazine, the transfer originates from an analogue BetaCam tape, and sure looks like it. Moreover, the article claims that the film's intended format has been widescreen, unfortunately, a usable WS source for the DVD could not be found. Pity...

Update: According to Czech Feature Film V, 1971 - 1980 (28), the OAR is actually 1.37:1!

Well, this Russian release IS a definite improvement over the old Czech one! Progressive, more vivid... Sadly, we're still denied the fullness of the original 2.35:1 scope. :-( As a side-note, the Japanese captions in the photogallery suggest the DVD is a port of an older Trash Mountain Video disc.

Notes: 
This is another one of the controversial NFA restorations that had the green dial cranked up to 11, which should be pretty obvious from the screenshots in our gallery. Interestingly enough, the picture's been cropped to a wider aspect ratio - going by the booklet, that's how the film was originally screened (it seems my reading of the Czech Feature Film catalogue wasn't entirely correct :-P).
