Anyone familiar with the films of Martin Frick? Shot 100 films, took his own life when the Soviets invaded Czechoslovakia.

I added that because it is available to preorder now. It is not confirmed info about subtitles yet. But last Sverak's films had English subtitles - so this could have too.

The

The previous DVD release from Magic Box did not have English subs, even though apparently it was listed among the specs:

But, anyway, let us keep our fingers crossed this time around...

There’s a compressed youtube trailer (
) and these somewhat small caps on the NFA site http://eea.nfa.cz/cz/filmy/ikarie-xb-1/?ch=2-galerie.

What are you after? If it’s about image quality.: It’s a proper 4K restoration. There have been some problematic restorations done by the NFA (they’ve decided to leave in cue marks, for example (where stamped in the negative itself), as a "historical artefact", but mainly they’ve failed to do proper color grading work sometimes -- Adela jeste nevecerela (1977) to name one). But when it comes to Ikarie, that’s black-and-white, and according to an Association of Czech Cinematographers’ review (in Czech only, sorry http://www.ceskam.cz/cz/novinky/rece...mu-ikarie-xb-1), this is much better than some of their other ventures, partly because the negative itself has been in great condition. They still mention some slight misses in contrast and saturation of black but the bottom line is that this is a good restoration. So a safe buy if that was your concern. I’m not sure about the cue marks here, though...

I was thinking more along the lines of DNR/grain reduction, but thank you for the information.

I am not sure about the cue marks, you won’t notice the grading (if there’s something slightly wrong here, in this case definitely not noticeably), I am not sure about the encode, but I am absolutely and definitely sure that the grain is left untouched. You won’t find any DNR in any of these restorations whatsover (be it the work of NFA or http://www.theczechfilmfoundation.com/). Not even fake grain--for example Ze soboty na neděli (1931) was restored from more different materials and they are not tampered with, the grain structure is always left the way it was present in the material.

I found some additional caps in the Ministry of Culture FB post. They are not caps of the blu-ray itself, but it is the restoration, this is what you’ll get.:

https://www.facebook.com/ministerstv...04891506219945











Edit: The trailer on Vimeo has slightly better compression (and wrong gamma), the grain structure is therefore a little bit more evident in comparison with the youtube one. https://vimeo.com/167284428
