Bossi: Jaque Mate

A video trailer for an action-packed crime novella.


Carlos Hernandez’s short promo video for Jose Antonio Kapelo’s crime novella ‘Bossi: Jaque Mate’ is a thrilling and seductive showcase of the book’s content. The film effectively captures the essence of the novel, highlighting the world of drug trafficking, mafias, struggles for power, betrayal, revenge, and the ever-present threat of death. Hernandez’s cinematography is simply amazing, immersing viewers in a world where danger lurks around every corner.

The acting in the film is top-notch, delivering performances that are both exciting and thrilling, making you feel as if you’re part of the story yourself. The video serves as a powerful advertisement for the book, intriguing viewers and encouraging them to buy the book and dive deeper into the story.

One of the standout aspects of the film is the Spanish language used both in the video and in the subsequent novella. Not only does it showcase the rich culture and heritage of Spain, but also adds an authentic feel to the story, making it feel more genuine and realistic. The only downside to the language barrier is that non-Spanish speakers may not be able to fully appreciate the nuances of the story or fully comprehend the characters and the plot.

In conclusion, the film is an exciting and engaging portrayal of the world that Kapelo has created in his book, an atmosphere of crime, passion, and blood that pulls you in and keeps you engaged until the very end. It is a must-see for fans of the crime and thriller genres and will likely encourage them to easily delve into the story and immerse themselves fully in the world of Kapelo’s narrative trilogy. A full film adaptation would be more than welcome.
