THE HAND OF GOD, 2021, Netflix, 130 min. Dir. Paolo Sorrentino.
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.
THE GREAT BEAUTY, 2016, Janus Films, 124 min. Dir. Paolo Sorrentino.
Director Paolo Sorrentino (IL DIVO) returns with a dazzling elegy to Rome’s past glories – and those of Jep Gambardella (Toni Servillo), a once-promising writer who fritters away his time with Roman high society. There are echoes of LA DOLCE VITA in this portrait of a man adrift in the Eternal City, not the least of which is the sense that we are witnessing a master filmmaker at work. Oscar winner for Best Foreign Language Film. “A wildly inventive and sometimes thrilling ode to sensibility and to some of its linguistic cousins, like sensation, sensitivity and sentiment.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times. In Italian with English subtitles.
