Orage (Storm) marked Charles Boyer's return to France after a two-year soujourn in Hollywood. Boyer plays construction engineer Andre Pascaud, who is dissatisfied with his marriage to the adoring Gisele (Lisette Lanvin). When Andre's brother-in-law Gilbert (Robert Manuel) brings home his fiancee Francoise (Michele Morgan), Andre instantly falls in love with the girl. He pursues a romance with Francoise, never letting her know that he's married. When the "moment of truth" arrives, it spells disaster for all concerned, none more so than the unfortunate Francoise. Based on a play by Henri Bernstein,Orage served to boost the stardom of Michele Morgan, a protegee of director Marc Allegret.
