Though Marcel Ophüls is best known for his epic-length investigations into French collaboration during World War II, A Sense of Loss, an incisive inquiry into a then-still-raging contemporary conflict—the Troubles of Northern Ireland—is every bit as enormous an accomplishment. Taking testimony from both Protestants and Catholics, notables and everyday citizens, Ophüls creates an invaluable document of life during wartime, haunted by the specter of sudden death and seemingly endless strife.
