When this started, I genuinely had no idea what was happening. As the film progresses, that feeling doesn’t go away much. There’s some neat character moments, but it’s just everywhere and I couldn’t click with any of the characters. Not a bad film, but this just isn’t one for me.

I think this isn’t a movie for everyone, it can be slow and even a little bit boring at times. Not for me though, I found it extremely poetic, intoxicating almost. I had never seen anything from Sorrentino before (apart from a short movie, that I liked but didn’t think was anything special) and it really surprised me positively because I didn’t think I’d appreciate it this much. Particularly towards the end when the protagonist addresses his need to make movies and work in this industry really moved me and it really hit close to home. Moreover the images, the color’s and in general the vibes reminded me a bit of Call Me By Your Name, one of my favorite movies of all time.

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. [Netflix]
