The Hand of God



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. Earning Filippo Scotti the Best Young Actor award, and winning the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival, The Hand of God is a tale of fate and family, sports and cinema, love and loss.

Featuring Sorrentino’s directorial notes and an interview with cinematographer Daria D’Antonio, this book takes the reader behind the scenes and into the minds of its creators. Stunning shots of Naples and its nearby natural wonders are accompanied by intimate, emotional moments that evoke nostalgia for family and for discovering one’s passion.

So what exactly is The Hand of God? A coming-of-age story that aims, stylistically, to avoid the traps of conventional autobiography—hyperbole, victimhood, pity, compassion and the indulgence of pain—through a simple, sparse and essential staging.
