NOSELAND is a humorous ode to the world of classical music and some of its star musicians. It features the world famous violinist Julian Rachlin and many other great classical musicians, alongside John Malkovich and Sir Roger Moore. Although it is a feature length documentary, it crosses genres into fiction and comedy. As a mockumentary it shows classical musicians like never before: private, crazy and authentic. Written by

The whole movie was shot within 14 days on location at Julian Rachlin's classical music festival in Dubrovnik, Croatia in September 2010. Some parts were re-shot in Vienna, Austria right after the festival over 2 additional days. Back then it was still unclear what exactly the final product will be. See more »
An entertaining glimpse into the classical music world. enjoyed it.
To be honest I'm not a big fan of classical music nor Mokumentries. However, it took me the trailer to pretty much set me up for an entertaining hour and twenty minutes.
The movies introduces you with the key figures of a concert revolving classical music, it makes fun at pretty much everything it can on the classical music scene, including the movie director (even a little too much). It has a few old A-listers such as John Malkovich and Roger Moore, who play themselves, which is quite nice to see them being honest and playing a little when they have a chance.
Moreover, the movie offers you some actually deep "no BS" insight about life and death and music, nothing too fancy, just some insight people at that world got which is quite humble and i really liked it since it inspires me in my life in turn.
Regarding the technical aspects movie wise, it's edited wonderfully and professionally. The shots are composed very well and are very crisp. the soundtrack and sound are top notch as expected from a movie made by a musician about musicians. in total it's polished pretty well and gives a professional feel even though it probably didn't have millions of dollars behind it.
In total, if you're reading this review, pick up the movie for a few bucks in Vimeo on demand or another places and watch it, alone or with friends , partner or family. it's a fun, different, funny and definitely worth your time.
