1999 - aka Saying Nothing or Not a Word Louise (Silla) has found out that her friend's mother has died in an accident. She is due to meet Emmanuelle (Bruni-Tedeschi), but is unable to tell her what has happened as her father thinks it best if she finds out later from her family rather than through a friend. One morning Louise finds out that her best friend's mother died. She will be spending the afternoon with her friend without telling her anything.
