The Last Suit
Cranky, crafty, and always immaculately dressed, aged master tailor Abraham Bursztein (Miguel Angel Sola) finds himself facing his winter years in a retirement home after discovering his children have sold his home out from under him. Not one to go quietly and feeling the pressure of a secret lifelong debt bearing down on him, Abraham unexpectedly sets out from Buenos Aires. His destination? Poland—a country whose name he refuses to utter—in order to deliver a suit to childhood friend Piotrek, who once saved Abraham’s life during the waning days of the Nazi occupation. From an unexpected setback in Madrid to the train station in Paris where he faces the reality of having to travel through Germany, Abraham slowly comes to face a lifetime of choices often made in anger, leading to an emotional reckoning with his past in this funny and deeply tender new film.
