    Sigur Ros - Heima (DVDRip)
    Heima : An introduction Last year, in the endless magic hour of the Icelandic summer, Sigur R�s played a series of concerts around their homeland. Combining both the biggest and smallest shows of their career, the entire tour was filmed, and now provides a unique insight into one of the world�s shyest and least understood bands captured live in their natural habitat. The culmination of more than a year spent promoting their hugely successful �Takk�� album around the world, the Icelandic tour was free to all-comers and went largely unannounced. Playing in deserted fish factories, outsider art follies, far-flung community halls, sylvan fields, darkened caves and the hoofprint of Odin�s horse, Sleipnir*, the band reached an entirely new spectrum of the Icelandic population; young and old, ardent and merely quizzical, entirely by word-of-mouth. The question of the way Sigur R�s�s music relates to, and is influenced by, their environment has been reduced to a journalistic clich� about glacial majesty and fire and ice, but there is no doubt that the band are inextricably linked to the land in which they were forged. And the decision to film this first-ever Sigur R�s film in Iceland was, in the end, ineluctable. Shot using a largely Icelandic crew (to minimise Eurovision-style scenic-wonder overload), �Heima� - which means both �at home� and �homeland� - is an attempt to make a film every bit as big, beautiful and unfettered as a Sigur R�s album. As such it was always going to be something of a grand folie, but one, which taking in no fewer than 15 locations around Iceland (including the country�s largest ever concert at the band�s Reykjavik homecoming), is never less than epic in its ambition. Material from all four of the band�s albums is featured, including many rare and notable moments. Among these are a heart-stopping rendition of the previously unreleased �Gitardjamm�, filmed inside a derelict herring oil tank in the far West Fjords; a windblown, one-mic recording of �Vaka�, shot at a dam protest camp subsequently drowned by rising water; and first time acoustic versions of such rare live beauties as �Staralfur�, �Agaetis Byrjun� and �Von�. Heima is the first chance to see Sigur R�s live on DVD. November 5, 2007. * The huge horseshoe canyon at �sbyrgi was, according to legend, formed by the hoofprint of this mythical beast.

    An absolute masterpiece...visually astonishing and deeply moving. The juxtaposition of opposites is seen and heard throughout this film (ex: light and shadow, life and death, motion and stillness, perfection and imperfection, young and old) which suggests the circularity of life. Heima also presents the viewer with an all-encompassing look at the beauty of Iceland as a segment of a much larger picture, Earth. This film is perfectly accentuated by the music of Sigur Ros as well as the free spirited attitude of the members of their band. Altogether, this film transcends the genre of music documentary (rockumentary) and takes it to an entirely new level with beauty that will bring tears to your eyes.
