Customer Review

on 11 November 2007
Heima is the second great musical film of 2007, Anton Corbjin's "Control" being the other. Rarely will a film have captured the spirt of a band and it's native environment, Iceland, so lovingly. Much of the film evokes a wonderful sense of community as Sigur Ros tour different locations and play to audiences from, what appears to be, tens to thousands. The cinematography is stunning, creative in the extreme, and many sequences are shot through the eye of a stills photographer, such is the attention to detail.

Having seen Sigur Ros play Birmingham in the same year the film was made and witnessed the extremes in their music; from achingly touching string arrangements to thrash guitar rock outs, watching this film clearly identified one of the sources for the almost bi-polar extremes of their work: the Icelandic landscape.

Heima is a rare thing of beauty made by a wonderful, self effacing group of musicians, their friends and families. Truly magnificent and worth every penny.
