THE HAND OF GOD

È stata la mano di Dio

From Academy Award-winning writer and director Paolo Sorrentino (THE GREAT BEAUTY) comes the story of a young man’s heartbreak and liberation in 1980s Naples, Italy. THE HAND OF GOD follows Fabietto Schisa, an awkward Italian teen whose life and vibrant, eccentric family are suddenly upended-first by the electrifying arrival of soccer legend Diego Maradona and then by a shocking accident from which Maradona inadvertently saves Fabietto, setting his future in motion. Sorrentino returns to his hometown to tell his most personal story, a tale of fate and family, sports and cinema, love and loss.

THE HAND OF GOD is unlike Sorrentino’s previous films. Instead, he looks inward for inspiration and turns in a lilting and beautiful film memoir, reminiscent of the pseudo-autobiographies of other auteurs such as Fellini’s AMARCORD, Tomatore’s CINEMA PARADISO or Almodovar’s PAIN AND GLORY.
