The Last Suit
At 88, Abraham Bursztein is seeing his place in the world rapidly disappear. His daughters have sold his Buenos Aires residence, set him up to move to a retirement home and simultaneously patronize him and smother him. But Abraham, who survived the Holocaust and made a successful life in a foreign land, isn’t about to quietly face away. Instead, he plots a secret one-way trip to Poland to find the Christian friend who saved him from certain death at the end of World War II. Abraham travels from Argentina to Spain, across Germany and finally to Poland. With its Klezmer-driven score, evocative cinematography and fleet pacing, The Last Suit approaches its weighty themes with a light touch that makes for an unforgettable viewing experience.
