This subpar DVD collection offers a video transfer of La Coquille et le clergyman (1928) that has been prepared from a fair-to-good 16mm reduction print, which is soft of image detail, contrasty, with plugged-up shadows and blasted-out highlights, moderately speckled and dusty, and marked with a few vertical scratches.

The film is presented with, what appears to be, a custom music score performed on a synthesizer.

We recommend by-passing this release in favor of the Kino disc noted above.
