directed by Constantin Popescu

A gentle comedy for the technophobes among us, The Yellow Smiley Face revolves around Mia and Florin Popescu, both over 50 and both a little scared of the technological changes going on around them. To them, the computer is nothing more than furniture until the chance to communicate with their son, Alex, who lives in the USA.

They unravel this new territory using the instructions Alex has sent them in a letter. A piece of over-read paper is their map to the world of the complcating world of Yahoo Messenger.
