Paolo Sorrentino’s bitingly funny, semi-autobiographical family tale is set during the Maradona-obsessed Naples of the 1980s. Winner of two awards at the Venice Film Festival, including the Grand Jury Prize.

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 fervor, due to the city’s team signing football genius and larger-than-life figure Maradona.

Depicting all this rich cultural tapestry Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty, The Young Pope) has reached into his own history and fashioned a bold, visually striking drama that uses its glorious locations to full effect. By turns touching, grotesque and savagely funny, and featuring an excellent ensemble cast (including the ever-brilliant Toni Servillo), The Hand of God comes replete with some jaw-dropping scenes that are typical of Sorrentino, a filmmaker at the top of his game. - Text by Adrian Wootton
