A 55’ & 82’ documentary directed in 2012 by Aleksey Igudesman
Noseland is a humorous ode to the world of classical music and some of its star musicians. Although it is a feature length documentary, it crosses genres into fiction and comedy.
The world famous violinist with a nose fetish, Julian Rachlin, takes over the town of Dubrovnik, Croatia, every year to bring together some of the world's greatest musicians, actors and composers and create a unique two weeks long classical music festival. His oldest friend, the violinist, composer and "wanna-be" filmmaker Aleksey Lgudesman offers to make a documentary film that will take an "inside look" at this "fairytale" festival but things seem to go wrong from the start.
Finding himself in the role of a somewhat oblivious producer, Rachlin watches the documentary fall apart in front of his eyes, as Lgudesman manages to offend every one of the artists he interviews. By the time John Malkovich starts ranting about how much Rachlin "sucks" and all classical musicians are depicted as "gay", Rachlin realizes that this is not quite what he expected.
A mix between being boldly sincere and outright ridiculous, questions like "What does a conductor actually do?" and "Why does anyone come to a music festival in the first place?" fail to be answered in the most eloquent way.
In the end, Aleksey Lgudesman makes Sir Roger Moore cry on camera and Julian Rachlin fear for his future, not only as a classical soloist...
