Critic Reviews for Echoes of home (Heimatklšnge)

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (1)

Slightly stretched at 82 minutes, the film nevertheless makes a strong case for this high, wide and lonesome sound expressing the soul of the alpine landscape, beautifully captured by the aerial camerawork.

A more complex, beautiful film than one had dared to hope. I'll never giggle at yodelling again.

This film is strange, but all the more rewarding for that. It will change your view of yodeling forever - and for the better.

Echoes of Home is a feature-length musical documentary about the Swiss art of yodelling. Unintentionally titter-inducing in execution, yet deadly serious in conception.

Times [UK]

Intriguing - but some of the musicians are just the tiniest bit smug about how wackily offbeat they are.

Some genuinely affecting moments punctuate their accounts, but overall this amiable documentary is as mad as a sackful of whippets.
