The original title for this film is È stata la mano di Dio. This is a lovely film. The cinematographer has done a fantastic job of making Naples look beautiful. I have to say that this is a very emotional film. I found myself being both moved and gripped by the whole experience of it all. It touches on themes such as cinema, family, fate, loss, love, tragedy and also at the heart of it sport.
