This budget edition has been mastered from a French VHS videotape copy of a full-frame, natural-speed video transfer from a 35mm reduction print, with permanent French subtitles under German intertitles. Any fine image details in the 35mm print have been lost to the low resolution of VHS, rendering a picture that is equivalent to a very-good 16mm reduction print. The print features a reasonable range of graytones, but the overall picture is contrasty with deep shadows and some burnt-out highlights.
The film is accompanied by a full orchestral music score, with a persistent hiss, that was likely on the source VHS videotape copy utilized for the edition.
This DVD is currently unavailable, as sales of the edition were discontinued in July 2006.
