    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.
