Did You Know?

Jon Thor Birgisson:I think Kjarri's grandmother, she went to the concert and thought it was really loud, and then heard it was on TV, too. Like, "It was on the TV! Let's go home! If it's on TV, let's go home and watch it on TV." Then it was the end of the last song and these crazy backdrops and stuff, like really intense. Then she thought something was wrong with her TV and shut it off. I think it's nice.See more »

A stunning introduction to a band and their home-country, 11 March 2008
Author: Gareth Hacking from Manchester

Having attended a one-off screening at the Manchester Cornerhouse, I can safely say that this film is visually and sonically stunning. The documentary chronicles Sigur Ros' 2006 free tour of Iceland, with every song introducing you to a different corner and aspect of Iceland. Each filmed performance takes place in a different location, from abandoned villages to massive open air concerts. And what performances they are!

Interceded throughout are interviews with the band, their support string section - Amiina and in one memorable instance, a man who constructs musical instruments from rocks. They all come across as a thoroughly likable group who have a deep love for their home-country. This film serves as both a wonderful introduction to Sigur Ros and their music as well as a great advert for Iceland.
