As a result of the accident, he remains partially hearing impaired and has to learn to read lips. Several months later he is back on duty, but his chief is quite wary of him, and reluctantly assigns him the case of a very attractive woman who picks the pockets of men lured by her through newspaper ads. He tries to make contact with the pretty thief by answering an ad she placed, but at the meeting point she addresses another man. That gives Renard the chance to see her at work, and to find her whereabouts. But instead of arresting her, he is intrigued by her actions. Her name is Maria and she steals money to finance a play ("Miss Julia" by August Strindberg) to be staged in a city theater where, twenty years before, her mother was killed before her own eyes while rehearsing the main character of the same play.

Life is not a play, but sometimes it looks alike...

This movie begins as the ordinary cop story, with officer Renard losing the use of his right ear after being shot in the head. A fragment of the bullet remains in his brain and cannot be removed, that makes his chief wary of him and reluctant to give him another assignment. He is appointed to follow the case of a very attractive girl who stole the wallets of several men. He finds her, but instead of arresting her he starts to follow her and finds out the reasons behind her financing the staging of Strindberg's "Miss Julie" with the money she stole. Very intriguing movie, although the end remains a bit too open...
