Although the medium shot predominates in Muerte de un ciclista (there are 228), a great number of them focus attention on the faces of characters, often in anticipation of close-ups (116) and extreme close-ups (35). Leaving aside those that focus on objects or other areas of the body, out of a total of 456 shots, 87 are close-ups and 32 are extreme close-ups of faces.

Nothing ever happens,” in María José’s words; “the same words as always,” says the priest in the wedding, according to Miguel, María José’s husband. And, in the original script, the party for the Americans is characterized similarly: “There were many familiar faces, all those people that could be seen everywhere, everyday” (Guión 66).
