Estrange Destin (Strange Fate) is based on a short story by Mme. De Lacombe. Heroine Renee St. Cyr marries Henri Vidal just before he is conscripted into WWII. Time passes: St. Cyr is led to believe that her husband has been killed, when in fact he is merely suffering from amnesia. After living happily with compassionate nurse Nathalie Mather, Vidal recovers his memory when the nurse dies. Will his wife forgive and forget his inordinately lengthy absence? At the time of its release in Paris, Estrange Destin drew laughs in the wrong places, indicating that the film still needed some work.
