"For Sorrentino... this feels like the beginning of a new chapter, a film-maker looking back both to adolescent fantasy and painful personal trauma in order to move forward."
★★★★★ Raphael Abraham, Financial Times

"Aside from iconic footballers -- and this film comes with a serious trigger warning for English football fans -- The Hand of God is backdropped by azure waters of the Gulf of Naples and a tapestry of extended family life that's a joy to witness."
★★★★ Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

"Throughout, Sorrentino and his cast make these teenage recollections twinge with freshness. Like our own sharpest memories of adolescence, the haze of nostalgia doesn't dull their edge."
★★★★ Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph 

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, 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.
