Through this short scene, Jean-Paul Civeyrac tries to recapture the emotions the first spectators of the Lumière films must have experienced while watching scenes of their everyday lives moving on for the first time a white screen. This is 2011, not 1895, although excerpts of articles of that particular year are heard in voice-over. The simple sequence shows Louise, a young woman, who takes a shower, gets dressed, combs her hair, puts on make up, gets into her coat and as she passes the piano, takes a score from it and waves bye bye to her partner whose face can be seen in a round mirror.
