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 week long classical music festival. His oldest friend, the violinist, composer and 'wanna-be' filmmaker Aleksey Igudesman offers to make a documentary film that will take an 'inside look' at this 'fairytale' festival but things seem to go wrong pretty much from the start.
