THE LAST SUIT
EL ÚLTIMO TRAJE
2017, 91 min, Argentina, Dir: Pablo Solarz

At 88, Abraham Bursztein (Miguel Ángel Solá) is being pushed into a retirement home by his kids, who disagree on how to handle his fading health. A Holocaust survivor, Abraham isn’t about to quietly fade away - he plans a secret one-way trip to Poland, where he hopes to find the Christian friend who saved him from certain death at the end of World War II. Along the way, he meets characters who both help him and need his help; a standout among these is iconic Spanish actress Angela Molina, who plays the proprietor of a Madrid hotel. With its klezmer-driven score, evocative cinematography and fleet pacing, this late-in-life road movie is comedic and poignant in equal measure.
