It's a dull and oddly morose subject for a movie.

Iceland's extraordinary natural beauty is as much a star of the movie as Sigur Rs'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.

Reverberates a sense not only of Iceland's people, places and history but a sense of natural intimacy and intimacy with nature. Capping it all is the band's best-ever, 'Popplagi,' a stunning 12 minutes that DeBlois matches with a shiver-inducing sequence

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.

Made with love for fans, this is an indulgent but enjoyable film about the band and the places that have inspired their music.

Heartfelt and humorous, if you're not pulsating during the Reykjavk finale you're probably kaput.

One of the most beautiful audiovisual experiences of the year.
