Notes: This film is a part of the "Slovak Cinema of the 60's - II" DVD edition
(released by SFI & The Daily SME), which also includes:


The disc starts with the SFI logo, followed by ads for Klapka.sk & The Daily SME. The former is actually a short interview with Ladislav Chudík (0:50, in Slovak), who speaks about his role in an earlier Paľo Bielik film, the 1959 "Kapitán Dabač" ("Captain Dabač").

Aargh! Will SFI never learn to take advantage of anamorphic enhancement for widescreen features? AND, to add insult to injury, the transfer here is pictureboxed - approx. 5 % of the already limited (SD) horizontal resolution are lost! It's a pity, since otherwise the restoration is very nice; not a blemish to be seen***, the colours pop off the screen... One cannot but think how stunning this could look on Blu-ray!

*difference between channels is -68.83 dB (0.04 %),
resp. -71.52 dB (0.03 %)
**subtitled in Slovak & English
***in fact, I noticed a few "jumps" in the picture, but after doing a comparison with my DVB recording, I'd say these are inherent to the existing source material, and SFI did their best to fix them:
