About The Film

An aging Jewish tailor leaves his life in Argentina to embark on a journey back through time and halfway around the world, in the bittersweet road movie THE LAST SUIT.

Eighty-eight-year-old Holocaust survivor Abraham Bursztein (Miguel Ángel Solá) is about to be put out to pasture by his children, who have sold his house in the suburbs of Buenos Aires and booked him into a retirement home. Refusing to bow to family pressure, he sets off on an adventure from which he doesn’t expect to return. Fueled by a sense of duty, and a quest for closure and fulfillment, Abraham decides that the moment has come to fulfill a promise and seek out an old friend. With assistance from a cast of kindly strangers, the sharply-dressed suit maker travels by train across Europe from Spain to Poland, in search of the man who saved his life from certain death. Undeterred by a series of travel mishaps, family foibles and geographical obstacles along the way, the hard edges of the cantankerous Abraham gradually soften.

Writer-director Pablo Solarz imbues his heartfelt and charming tale with nostalgic sepia-tinted colors, a klezmer-infused score, and delicate humor. Heartfelt and charming, THE LAST SUIT exudes a poignant message of the enduring importance of family, friends and honor.
