In an interview with Tempo magazine, director Teguh Karya candidly said, that he did not care much for the popularity of The Storm Will Pass. For him, "It was a fair exchange. The thing was, (because I made The Storm Will Pass) the producer allowed me to make Marriage For A Season (Perkawinan Dalam Semusim, 1976)."
