In the 1980′ Naples, a young Fabietto (Filippo Scotti) is shaped by his experiences, sports, family, pop culture, and the general awkwardness of teen hormones, a combination that could propel him forward to pursue a career in cinema, if he had a just had a story to tell, then again, maybe he does. Written and Directed by Paolo Sorrentino this deeply personal story is told through stunning cinematography yet angular and indirect plot lines, sketching out a story similar to a Picasso painting, an implied meaning that one understands by looking at the total piece but not by studying its individual parts; for this reason, this semi avant garde storytelling approach probably won’t sit well with mass audiences, however, those up for a slow burn will definitely have something memorable to discuss later. The Hand of God is rated R.
