Fantastic film and live performances.

Beautiful movie with a beautiful soundtrack, one of my favourites.

A must-see for Sigur Ros fans, but anyone could enjoy it.

You get an idea of what these musicians were capable of doing live in their heyday (1999-2008, but I think their best performances were 2000-2004 admittedly), the atmosphere they create is electric & regularly boggles the mind & senses. The intense, beautiful, emotionally engaging music is interspersed with shots of Iceland's gorgeous scenery & clips of interviews showing how down-to-earth the band obviously is.

This film gives the irresistible impression that the direction of Sigur Ros' music, the dedication to their art & simultaneous desire to reject a bullshit celebrity culture comes largely from the land they belong to. They are a breath of fresh air.

Beautiful scenery, matched with even more beautiful music that pours through you like a warm beam of light. Sigur Ros projects their passion in every note, their skill echoes through the snowy hills welcoming you to come along for the tour. Music you can feel in your bones.

If not an interesting documentary it sure is a pretty one. Sigur's music has so perfect timing and is so very, very emontional. This film uses great nature shots combined with pictures from a tour in iceland some years ago to go with their music and message. The documentary does this well without overdoing it. I like the stories they tell and some video/audio connections are cool. Great music, great images, OK documentary.

7 out of 10 goosebumps.

Amazing and hauntingly beautiful. You don't even need to like Sigur Ros. It makes you want to get on a plane ASAP to Iceland.

I loved it that after they've been to so many countries playing music for people, eventually their hometown, Iceland, still brought them the most happiness and gratitude. I was totally touched by the scene that all audience fly kites around this field while Sigur Ros are playing on the stage!

Brilliant performances, coupled with well- shot cinematography that just perfectly compliments the music that is being played.
If you're a fan of Sigur Rós, Heima is simply essential viewing.

This film highlights Iceland as much as it features Sigur Ros. There are some really beautiful images and great music, but it gets very repetitive, and overall, the documentary form wasn't delved into as deeply as it could have been.

Heima reminds me when in doubt that there is still beauty in the world.

If listening sightlessly to such pristine, ethereal music weren't already a transcendent experience, then accompanying it with beautiful images would probably make it so. The documentary interviews are thankfully very short, almost as spare as the music, which leaves plenty of time for footage of Sigur Rós concerts, Icelandic nature scenes, and other crazily random pretty things.

Phenomenal and required for any Sigur Ros fan...The gorgeous landscape of Iceland plays as a perfect backdrop to the ethereal feel of the music...One of my favorite rockumentaries, if not the best

After giving one of their biggest concert tours, Sigur Ros comes back home (Iceland) and plays for small towns. Heima (translated to "at home") goes to show how beautiful a country of 300,000 people can be, everything from the culture to the geography.

Can there be a more beautiful documentary? The exquisite and lyrical music is perfectly matched by the sensitive and delicate images. Not only is this a stunning love poem to Iceland, it's a celebration of the genius that is Sigur Ros. But beyond that, the film evokes an ancient beauty that unites people in a way that is transcendent and euphoric. To quote Radiohead, "For a moment there, I lost myself." This film should be sent in a time capsule into outer-space as a testament to how beautiful our species can be.

Doco about Sigur Ros touring their home country of Iceland, playing a series of free, unannounced shows is piss-ant towns... Awesome stuff...

The hard part about Heima is making a film that truly captures Sigur Ros and how magical they are. I think Dean DeBlois didn't want to attempt that because it's almost impossible. Instead, we see a very human side to the band members and their homeland of Iceland. We also get to witness this beautiful free tour they put on for the people in their country. They would go to small villages and play full shows (other than the acoustic set at the dam). They did this because they wanted to give back to the country from which they came. It's interesting. The only thing I didn't like, which was a big problem for me, was the seemingly pointless jump cuts and loud sound effects when showing the landscape in between songs. The country is so peaceful and beautiful, just like the band, so why add in the unnecessary noises? That's not what Sigur Ros is all about. But if you are a fan of Sigur Ros then Heima is a must see.
