The Last Suit


86 Minutes / Spanish / German / Polish / Yiddish

 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 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 to fulfill a promise from which he doesn’t expect to return. 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 him from certain death at Auschwitz. Heartfelt and charming, THE LAST SUIT exudes a poignant message of the enduring importance of family, friends and honor.
