Notes: 
This is an easy one. For Czech speakers, Bonton's release is the way to go. Sporting a solid progressive transfer, and a strong selection of extras, it leaves the Facets version far behind. Sadly, for whatever reason, Bonton stopped subtitling its DVDs in English, thus greatly diminishing their appeal for Czech cinema fans from abroad.

The main feature comprises five short films, each with a title card of its own:


*difference between channels is -65.46 dB (0.05 %)
**with optional Czech subtitles
