Iceland and Sigur Ros
30 September 2007 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

Astonishing landscapes, amazing filming, music of beauty.. I was deeply touched by this movie.. Sigur Ros is a band so special and really talented. Seeing the landscapes of Iceland one can understand how the weather, the scenery, the people, affect their music and the way they write these songs. I think this movie is a must for all fans, as well as for people who don't know Sigur Ros yet. The general idea is that after a long series of tours and international activity, they wanted to get back in Iceland to perform a series of live performances for their own people. The places they chose to play live are unbelievable each one affecting their set and the way they sound. A 10 for me!
