Critic Reviews for Heima (Sigur Ros: Heima)
The whole island seems to be in transition - huge developments threaten to deface the natural grandeur of the place - and this documentary may yet come to represent a vital memorial.
The elegantly composed shots of the island's broodingly lonesome wide spaces offer clues as to the group's widescreen post-rock sound. Indeed, their music comes to seem site-specific, as environmentally immersed as the landscape art of Richard Long.
Sigur Ros' creativity and open attitude was at one with Iceland's ravishingly beautiful landscape.
When the band and the film move in sweet simpatico they produce a few precious moments of transcendent grandeur.
Iceland's extraordinary natural beauty is as much a star of the movie as Sigur Rós's magisterial music and the all-local crew could hardly have done a more impressive promotional job had 'Heima' been commissioned by the Icelandic Tourist Board itself.
Audience Reviews for Heima (Sigur Ros: Heima)
During the series of free gigs around Iceland, Sigur Ros created a concert film that doesn't quite follow the usual standards of the genre. They concentrated on the people, the places, and the amazing country around them, and the beautiful film Heima was born. All the performances are strong, and the music haunting. Combined with the images, you find an audio/visual treat that really does act as a great opening to the band's music, or if you are a fan already, something different and very personal from the band. Iceland should be proud, not only of what the band has achieved, but also of how they portray this beautiful land.
beautiful country, beautiful music, beautiful film...and finally an audience that understands the lyrics lol
Icelandic alternative band Sigur Ros return to their homeland after a long world tour for a couple of concerts at very unusual places. This documentary shows new performances of some of their songs, short interview glimpses with the band and breathtaking images of Iceland mixed together into a stunning, magic concert film. It also takes a close look at the audiences coming to their free shows, their faces, their reactions. The result is so breathtakingly beautiful that I am still speechless. Works for fans of the band or the country and everyone who is curious about either.
