Paolo Sorrentino lets echo his childhood in his native Naples and how in the eighties the omnipresent presence of Maradona invaded everything in the beautiful Italian city in the trailer of ‘It was the hand of God’, his new and most personal film that, after being seen at the Venice Film Festival in early September and a theatrical release, will be released on Netflix before the end of the year.
According to the platform, the director of ‘The great beauty’ and ‘The youth’ returns to the city where he was born to tell his most personal story: a story about fate and family, sports and movies, love and loss.
‘It was the hand of God’ presents the story of a young man, Fabietto Schisa, in the turbulent Naples of the eighties. A film in which there is room for happy surprises _ such as the arrival of the legendary soccer player Diego Maradona_ and for an equally unforeseen tragedy. Fate plays its part, joy and misery intertwine, and Fabietto’s future begins to roll.
