A piece that was ultimately used in "A Line", "smile" is a rare early psychological portrait, the strands of which would eventually lead to the more narrative pieces.

There are echoes of the blurring technique used in "smile" in "clouds and raindrops" when the male character looks at himself in the mirror.
