"La máxima longitud de un puente" impresses by its memorable opening scene which accompanies us throughout the film by its surprising beauty. The purity of the shots, the minimalist style, the acting but also the importance of the off-screen and this impression of living out of time plunges us into a kind of contemporary and tragic Bressonian universe.
