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 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: 
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?
