Storyline

Montreal police officer Renard is shot in the head and seriously wounded while on duty. A fragment of the bullet remains in his head and cannot be removed. 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.

Life is not a play, but sometimes it looks alike...
3 July 1999 | by Vice-4See all my reviews

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...
