The Hand of God

A tight-knit Neapolitan family’s supposedly settled lives are beset by old history, jealousies, and not-so-hidden infidelities. This is all set against the febrile backdrop of 1980s Naples, a city gripped by a quasi-religious fervour, due to the city’s football team signing genius and larger-than-life figure Maradona. In depicting all this rich cultural tapestry, Sorrentino (The Great Beauty) has reached into his own history and fashioned a bold, visually striking drama that uses its glorious locations to full effect.
