5 stars It is hard to know whether I should assign this documentary 4.0 or 5.0 stars.

If you like Sigur Ros and are interested in them as a band, take this as a 5-star review. The cinematography is really good. It is very good in letting you know where the band is in Iceland, in showing the people, customs, and sometime a little history about the place.

I have personally seen Sigur Ros in concert, and it was a great experience. In this video they are not only able to convey this power at times, but also their softer side in much more intimate settings.

It is true that at times it is more about Iceland than Sigur Ros. So, for those who only want to see them play, take this as a 4-star review. But since music is art, and art conveys.... an idea? a feeling?.... something, Sigur Ros conveys what they want through their music and images of their homeland. Therefore as an artistic proposition from a progressive band, it deserves 5.0 stars.

Personally, what I like seeing in videos is the artists performing, to be able to see their fingers or arms or legs hit the frets, toms, whatever. And the takes in this video are really good, sustained long enough, and not disregarding the help they get from the string quartet or brass instrument players.

Really worth watching and owning.

DAVA | 5/5 |
