THE LAST SUIT El Ultimo Traje - ON STAND BY*
Director: Pablo Solarz • Argentina/Spain • 2017 • Spanish with English subtitles • 92 min
This touching drama tells the story of Abraham, an 88-year-old tailor in Buenos Aires, who has waited decades to fulfill a promise to a Polish friend who helped him escape the Holocaust. In his travels across Europe to Poland, cantankerous Abraham clashes with everyone whose help he needs. But he seems to be mysteriously blessed, as the very people he fights with become his guardian angels, helping him each step along the way. Heartfelt and charming, The Last Suit reminds us of the importance of family, friendship, and keeping your word.
