Movie Reviews

Great Travel Piece for Iceland and Common Men
Oglach | Bun an Tabhairne, Ireland | 12/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a great music dvd this is. I normally do not like music dvds, too often filled with preening and self-adoration. But this one is different, showing the geography and scope of Iceland and its people in a very fresh, low-key and brilliant way, as well as showing off the music and the relative humility and humanity (as well as talent) of the musicians. I bought my first Sigur Ros CD years ago, and hadn't any idea what any of them looked like. You get to see them here, but in such a humble, common man way it is really refreshing. You also see much of the ordinary people of Iceland and the massive, empty scenery of the place. Just beautiful at virtually every level."
Superbly made music doc and concert footage
Zhimbo | New York City | 12/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Beautifully filmed and expertly edited, this is one of the best music documentary/tour films I've seen. It delivers great performances in wonderful settings, and was made with clear affection towards the land and the people of Iceland.

The 2nd disk is a great bonus that may well end up getting more play than the main disk, as it presents all of the performances uninterrupted by snippets of interview, as they are in the main documentary, as well as some additional material that didn't make the main film."
Beautiful documentary!

"This documentary is absolutely gorgeous, both visually and aurally. The film consists of interviews with the band, concert footage in their homeland of Iceland, and breathtaking landscapes. The concert shown includes great backstage views, as well as a audience member's view of a very non-traditional concert.
If you're a fan of Sigur Ros, I highly recommend seeing this film. You will not be disappointed. Even if you're not a fan, it's worth seeing for the imagery alone."

"Heima screened last night in my neighborhood, and Sigur Ros played a small acoustic set before the film. Absolutely brilliant! A fine documentary that embraces all the ideals of the band's music, and shows the wonderous nature of their homeland and its people. I don't think there is anything more enjoyable to a music listener than seeing the origins of songs and the unique manner and settings in which they were recorded. Obviously I am a fan, so I think that Sigur Ros may very well be the pioneer of 21st century classical music, but if you have not yet given this band a listen, do yourself a favor and check out the film."
