Nobody Will Laugh is a Czech film is about young art historian who can not tell people unpleasant things, and therefore does not want to write a critique of the work of a novice author.
Czech filmmaker Hynek Bocan largely eschewed the conventions of his country’s New Wave cinema in favor of making well-crafted, traditional literary adaptations. A graduate of his native Prague’s prestigious FAMU in 1961, Bocan started out assisting such filmmakers as Karel Kachyna, Jan Nemec, and Jiri Weiss. In 1969, Bocan was forced by his government to stop the shooting of his third film on political grounds. Banned from making features, Bocan then turned to television. In 1974, the Czech authorities allowed him to return to filmmaking. —IMDb
