Event

'The Last Suit' preceded by 'The Driver is Red' presented by LA Jewish Film Festival
THE LAST SUIT
Los Angeles Premiere!
Drama/Argentina/2017/88 minutes
Directed and written by Pablo Solarz
Spanish, Yiddish and German with English subtitles

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 Europe on the journey of a lifetime, Abraham is is accompanied by extraordinary 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.

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.
