The Hand of God

September 22

This event occurred as part of the 21/22 Hop Film season. This is an archived view.

The story of a boy in the tumultuous Naples of the 1980s. Paolo Sorrentino's (The Great Beauty) most personal film yet is a tale of fate and family, sports and cinema, love and loss.

21/22 Hop Film

In his films Il Divo, The Young Pope and the Oscar-winning The Great Beauty, writer-director Paolo Sorrentino has established his mastery of elegantly panoramic stories of larger-than-life political-cultural figures. Here, he crafts an intensely personal, delicately sad and funny recollection and celebration of Naples, his home. Sorrentino follows Fabietto, a teenager whose sexual and creative education is formed through his passions for icons of soccer (Diego Maradona) and cinema (Federico Fellini). Toni Servillo, known for playing deliciously corrupt men in previous Sorrentino films, plays Fabietto's loving, ordinary dad. With his wonderful cinematographer Daria D'Antonio, Sorrentino exchanges his brilliantly cynical tones, discovering a deeper vein of generosity and tenderness in the Italian universe he continues to create.
