"Just an absolutely staggering film... It's been a long while since i've seen something that makes as much of an immediate case for being on my all-time favourites list as this. I think that if you are a fan of cinema like Herzog or Tarkovsky you really NEED this DVD fractionally more than you need oxygen"

"An evocative and often stunning medieval gem from the height of Slovak cinema, Dragon's Return is a haunting experience worthy of more familiarity among English-speaking viewers... an excellent package boasting a transfer as sterling as anything they've ever released. It's hard to see any way this could look better"

"Grečner's gorgeously executed 1967 drama... for those who thrill at discovering films from years past that leave much of what we tend to be served up today looking flat and unadventurous, this is another must-have from this most dedicated of UK distributors. "

"Immaculate restoration of 1967 Slovak film, complete with remarkable score... DRAGON'S RETURN is a revelation, and this new high-definition restoration more than does it justice."

"A remarkable example of the stark, sparse, monochrome beauty mastered by Eastrn European filmmakers (from František Vláčil to Béla Tarr)... has potent, primitive resonance born of the rich, poetic intricacies of its visual and sonic design. The unforgettable power of its vision is all there in the quietly devastating ending"
