Notes: 
"The White Dove" shares the disc with "Josef Kilián," a film by Pavel Juráček & Jan Schmidt.

Having been spoiled by the kind of no-expense-spared treatment Vláčil's seminal "Marketa Lazarová" had got, I was shocked to see his debut feature / "visual poem" presented this way - in short, it looks H.O.R.R.I.B.L.E.!
     Mind you, I'm not blaming Second Run here - unlike FEX, they actually did make the effort to at least clean the crummy old master up (much more than our screenshot comparison may lead you to believe). (The slight cropping all around the frame is - I expect - a side-effect of their clean-up process.)

So, does either of these DVDs do the film justice? No. But if you want to see it - and I do recommend seeing it - Second Run's is the best edition currently out there!
