INNI is Sigur Rós's second live film following 2007's hugely-celebrated “Heima”. Whereas that film positioned the enigmatic group in the context of their Icelandic homeland, providing geographical, social and historical perspectives on their otherworldly music, with uplifting results, “Inni” focusses purely on the band's performance, which is artfully and intimately captured by French-Canadian director Vincent Morisset (Arcade Fire's “Miroir Noir”). Interweaving archive material from the band's first ten years with the sometimes gossamer light, sometimes punishingly intense, concert footage, “Inni” is a persuasive account of one of the most celebrated and influential rock bands of recent years.
“INNI is the intimate in the middle of a big stage. It's the abstraction of the gestures and the magnification of delightful details. It's a tribute to the unique energy of Sigur Rós. INNI leaves room to all the beautiful images that come to our minds when we listen to their music.” (Vincent Morisset)
