The Hand of God is a semi-autobiographical film by Paolo Sorrentino that explores the experiences of his youth. Paolo was orphaned at a young age due to an accident that killed his parents. He survived because he watched a football match for the Napoli club, which at that time was strengthened by Maradona.

Typical of Italian films, the cinematography of this film is stunning with a poetic narrative. However, it must be admitted that there are still many male gaze scenes here because it uses the point of view of teenage boys.
