Notes: 
Well, well, well, what a "surprise" - the Czech release of "Údolí včel" looks better than the one by Facets! According to the info posted on zona.bloudil.cz, Bonton planned to produce this DVD from exactly the same master they provided Facets with last year. Fortunately, a group of enthusiasts at BrickBox authoring studios took matters into their own hands, and cleaned the print up a treat, as you can see in the examples below. I'm convinced this is the best the film's gonna look, short of transfer from the original negative, and kudos belongs to Patrik Velek, Petr Sudek & Petr Menčík!

Notes: 
DVD z roku 2010 obsahuje tradičně mírně prosvětlenější záznam odpovídající tehdy dostupným podkladům, jež použil i Bonton / CČV (2007). Oproti českému vydání je jen o sekundu posunutý.

JINÉ VYDÁNÍ

Disk lze zakoupit jednotlivě či ve zvýhodněném souboru nazvaném "The František Vláčil Collection" spolu s dalšími třemi filmy:

  • "Marketa Lazarová" (F. Vláčil, 1967)
  • "Adelheid" (F. Vláčil, 1969)
  • "Sentiment" (dokument, T. Hejtmánek, 2003)

Skrýt spoiler

* První vrstva zabírá 62,27 % a druhá 37,73% dat.
** V souboru VIDEO_TS.IFO je jako jazyk uvedena nepochopitelně maďarština. Vzhledem k absenci jakékoliv jiné zvukové stopy, na niž by se snad mělo přepínat, si této chyby authoringu všimne jen málokdo (byť je například v kontextovém menu PowerDVD 20 Ultra maďarština skutečně nabízena).

Notes: 
I kinda expected this would be based on the unrestored-but-quite-serviceable HD master the Czech TV channel 2 aired a while ago, but it turns out it's actually a hitherto unseen third [local] master!
     However, I can't but take an issue with the box blurb which reads: "REMASTERED VERSION - Enjoy the improved viewing experience," as the improvement on the 12-year-old Bonton DVD is, um, non-existent?
