Academy Award Nominee. From Academy Award-winning writer and director Paolo Sorrentino (Il Divo, The Great Beauty, The Young Pope) comes the story of a boy, Fabietto Schisa, set in the tumultuous Naples of the 1980s. The Hand of God is a story full of unexpected joys, such as the arrival of football legend Diego Maradona, and an equally unexpected tragedy. Fate plays its part, joy and tragedy intertwine, and Fabietto’s future is set 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.
“More than just a pretty European art film, The Hand of God is a sensitive memoir that possesses all the beauty and pain of the best memories.”—City AM
“ The Hand of God remains a more intimate, scaled-down picture than most of the filmmaker’s oeuvre – while simultaneously elevating it to one of his best.”—Crooked Marquee
