Movie Info

At 88, Abraham Bursztein is seeing his place in the world rapidly disappear. His kids have sold his Buenos Aires residence, set him up to move to a retirement home, and disagree on how to handle his fading health. But Abraham survived the Holocaust, made a successful life in a foreign land, and isn't about to quietly fade away. Instead, he plots a secret one-way trip to Poland, where he plans to find the Christian friend who saved him from certain death at the end of World War II, and to keep his promise to return one day. Comedic and poignant in equal measure, from Argentina to Spain, across Germany and finally to Poland, Abraham is on his own but also accompanied by the characters he meets along the way, who both help him and need his help. A standout among these is the iconic Spanish actress Angela Molina, as the proprietor of the Madrid hotel where he stays. With its klezmer-driven score, evocative cinematography and fleet pacing, THE LAST SUIT approaches its weighty themes with a light touch that illuminates a serious story. And in its mix of Spanish, Yiddish, German and Polish it is a globe-trotting surprise, a late-in-life road movie with planes, trains and heart.

[Pablo] Solarz may be able to claim that it is based on a true story, but drama requires more than that.

March 21, 2018 | Full Review…

A little outdated, too underlined, with an obvious allegorical proposal lacking in nuances or subtleties. [Full Review in Spanish]

January 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It's a simple story about personal quests that appeals to the nostalgic tone and it is achieved thanks to Miguel Angel Solá, on whom the weight of the story rests... [Full review in Spanish]
